A note about compensation: Taking Fountain grew out of my inappropriately long Facebook status updates (turns out, none of my friends want to see five paragraphs exalting an air conditioning unit). I intend on being as honest here as I am there, regardless of any compensation I may receive, and I'll always make sure sponsored content is clearly designated as such. In many posts, I've included links to products I recommend--sometimes I receive a commission (at no additional cost to you!) if you purchase through those links. Since the CEO of the Internet refuses to give me a salary+benefits package to run Taking Fountain, it is obviously VERY MUCH APPRECIATED when you use those links! Thanks, everyone!
