disclosure: some required legalese

You might have noticed that I've added some ads to Life After Work recently.

... I certainly hadn't planned on going this route, but because of changes in how is making its payments (it's now totally based on revshare, I don't earn anything just from visits to my sites anymore, bummer!) I needed to get myself my own Google AdSense and Associates accounts; once I had them, I figured I might as well leverage them for myself on this blog ...

... Then there is the US Federal Trade Commission's requirement that "bloggers who make an endorsement must disclose the material connections they share with the seller of the product or service" that I've not properly complied with yet...

As a result, here is some required legalese I need to disclose:
