Correct - it's a sponsored article, also known as an advertorial. It says Sponsored Article on the home page, and you'll notice the posting name is "Sponsor". And there's the disclaimer at the end. So I don't hide the fact that it's an advertorial in any way - I don't know how to make it any more obvious.

We've been offering sponsored articles since 2002. This is the 28th one we've done since this is definitely not anything new for the site. It's the first one we've done in over a year though, so maybe that's why this seems "new" to you?

I wish I were independently wealthy and could run all my sites ad-free, but I'm not, so I can't. So, yes, I really do need every bit of support I can get.
