The author declares no competing interests

The “no competing interests” statement from a paper that I submitted the other day. Picture source: me.

Since this blog is mostly about my adventures and misadventures in trying to learn French, I often write about sources that I’ve found useful in my studies.  I often wonder if people think that I’m getting paid to shill for them.  In fact, the opposite is true—I pay for the use of any of the resources that I talk about in this blog that aren’t free.  If I don’t say very much that’s bad about French-learning resources in general, it’s because I don’t say very much that’s bad about anything, at least not in public—in my life in general, I tend to mostly talk about things and people that I can say nice things about, and to mostly avoid talking about things and people that I can’t say anything nice about.

  1. That’s such a wise attitude, I imagine often hard to stick to. But it possibly becomes a character trait with practice. and easier in the long run? Thanks for reminding me, I’ll try for the umpteenth time to travel down that road starting today… Thanksgiving 🙂
