The compensation I receive may influence the advertising content, links, or post topics of this blog, but will never influence my opinions on any subject or product.

I am not responsible for anything that happens to anyone as a result of anyone’s following my advice or reviews, or purchasing a product or service as a result of visiting Mocha Dad.


I reserve the right to remove or edit any comment that I for any reason. Comments are likely to be removed if they contain excessive profanity or hateful speech, are abusive to another commenter, an advertiser, or a sponsor, or if they appear to have been left mostly for the purpose of promoting another website, blog or business.  All links in the comments section are reviewed, so if it has even the faintest whiff of spam, it will be removed.
