This is a personal blog, written and maintained by me, Ruth, also known as the geekmummy. You can find out more about my family and me on my “About Me” page.
I mainly write blog posts about my family and technology, particularly apps (I love my iPad), but I can and will write about anything that takes my interest. The purpose of this blog is to share news and updates with my extended family and friends, and also to share my love of technology with anyone who’ll listen! This is a hobby for me, and I write for relaxation and enjoyment.
I maintain complete creative control of the content of this blog. Every post (unless clearly specified otherwise) is written by me, and reflects my own thoughts and opinions. I may occasionally host a guest post from another blogger – this will be clearly marked as a guest post, and will be something I think will be of interest to you, my readers. I will always preface such a post with my own words explaining why I am sharing the post with you. My husband John, also known as the geekdaddy has an open invitation to post here should he desire, but so far he has only done this once. I do not accept payment in return for hosting a guest post.
I also do not publish press releases, nor do I accept payment for writing about a specific topic or placing specific keywords or links within a post (sponsored posts).
I enjoy trying new products or experiences, and occasionally publish reviews of things that we’ve tried. Sometimes these are things that I have bought or paid for myself, sometimes I have been offered complimentary products or services in exchange for a review on my blog. I will always disclose when I am reviewing an item that I have been provided with for review purposes. I am PR-friendly, and I am always interested to receive approaches to review products and services relevant to my family – please contact me.
My “day job” is in the financial services sector, so whilst I keep my blogging and my professional life separate from each other, I will not work with financial products or services in order to avoid any conflict of interest.
Because I would like this blog to be a “self-funding hobby” I use affiliate links when linking to products on either Amazon or iTunes. These are companies I use extensively, endorse fully, and would be linking to any way. If you make a purchase after clicking on one of these links I will receive a small commission payment.
I offer paid sidebar advertising space on my blog, please contact me for details and rates.

A special note about apps.
I love apps. I buy loads, and I enjoy finding and testing new ones. I maintain lists of my favourite apps. I am always interested in hearing about new apps, but I can’t guarantee to review any app in particular, and so I don’t accept promo codes in exchange for reviews. If you send me a promo code anyway I may well accept it, and I’ll do my best to provide feedback in some form, but I can’t promise how timely or detailed this will be – as I said before this is a hobby for me.
