What does it cost me to run this blog?
laurentshcoice.com hosting fees, SSL certificate, security plugins and domain name amount to about 120 USD/month.
Software licence fees such as Adobe suite and extra cloud storage cost about 90 USD/month.
And of course, I am working full time for free 🙂
Am I sponsored?
No. At this moment I do not receive or seek any revenues from the manufacturers which are mentioned on this blog.
Who is supporting me ?
Again, I ma not sponsored, and not sure I would want to be. Being independent is the only garanty of having an unbiased technical opinion on any product.
This said, I enjoy the non-monetized support of some brands and merchants, which send me, on request, some products I would want to review.
Here is who they are :
Since I moved to Lebanon, Macrotronics have been the very first merchant agreeing to lend me some of their products. They have always been there when I needed them.
They also allowed me to keep some items such as:
- 1 set of 4 RGB fans Thermaltake.
They also sent a laptop, free of charge, to Hugo Picard, to support his YouTube Channel : The French Sailing Man.
They are an awesome bunch! If you are in Lebanon, you want to look them up!
These guys distribute a bunch of different brands in Lebanon, and I have known them mainly through and thanks to Macrotronics.
They have sent me some products, some of which they allowed me to keep and which I am using to write this very article.
- 1 Midtower Case
- 1 PSU (1000W)
- 1 AIO CPU cooler
- 1 Set of Keybaord and Mouse
- 1 Z370 Motherboard.
Love them, thanks again for your trust and support!
These guys are also distributing a variety of brands. They allowed me to review a few of their products, and welcomed me warmly in Lebanon :).
They gave me gaming chair. The one I used on my videos.
I hope that I have been as transparent as one can be :). I shall update this page every so often. So forgive me if it is not as updated as I would want it to be.
How else can I contribute?
