Advertising, Editorial, and Integrity

Like most websites, Macgasm has advertising. We have ads not only to keep the site up, but also so our writers can eventually become full-time contributors. Because we have ads, every drop of content that we provide has zero monetary cost to you. I believe this to be a lovely setup that benefits everyone. Josh, our Editor In Chief here at Macgasm, picks every ad by hand. We don’t cycle through randomly generated ads. We only display ads from partners that we trust. This means you never have to worry about clicking a link on any page. You will never receive malware or experience phishing sites from any advertisement on our site.

That said, I want to explain how the editorial process works for me. First, I come up with a topic I want to write about. Then, I do any research that is required. Next, I write the post. I then submit the post to Trish, our editor, and she checks for spelling and grammatical errors. The post is then scheduled to show up on the main page. That is it. There is absolutely no tomfoolery. If I felt the urge to write a negative review of an application from an advertiser, I would do so with no delay. Advertising pressure is never — NEVER — an issue for me. I am completely free to write whatever I wish as long as it pertains to Apple.

If you have any questions, feel free to comment on this post, tweet me, or e-mail me.
