Each week, the BostonZest team receives dozens of invitations and offers to sample products and attend events. We accept very few of these opportunities. When we have not paid the full fare for something we write about, we tell you. We even try to mention the small things like when our hosts at a restaurant send us a little something extra to taste.
For us to say yes to an opportunity, it has to be something that we think our readers will like. If we post about something, it is because we consider it worth the time and money you might spend on it. Finally, we make no promises to write about anything, when we accept an offer. As always, we write about those things that make living in Boston wonderful.
We do have adverstising that is inserted by Google Adsense.
Penny and Ed Cherubino are both freelancers who work for other publications, media, and production companies.
We love the humor in the badges used here. (From Four Hour Work Week.) But, we decided they didn't quite fit the BostonZest design asthetic for use in every post.
