In order to comply with new FTC guidelines for bloggers as well as to be upfront and honest with you, my readers, I present my disclosure policy as of February 9, 2017.
Many of my posts, pages, and social media platforms, have affiliate links in which I will receive a small commission if you click on them and make a purchase. For those of you who do click and purchase an item(s), we, my family and I, thank you for your support in keeping this blog up and running.
I have yet to do a sponsored post, but when that day comes, I will only accept sponsorships from products I have personally used and like (or even love). So, let me repeat, I do not and will not review products or services that I have never used or any products that do not thrill me. I believe a lot of people visit my site for advice, help, and support and so it is important to me to maintain my credibility. I will not risk the trust of my readers for compensation.
Also, note that I review many products and services with and sometimes without compensation because I love letting others know a good product or service when I come upon one. Every opinion and review on my blog are my own and I will never allow compensation to influence these. Furthermore, I will make my affiliations known in every post and page whether it is an affiliate link, gifted product or service, or a sponsored post.
Occasionally, I may link to a product that is ‘similar’ to a product I have listed only if I am unable to find the exact product or if a product is no longer available. Again, I will clearly state this so that you know it is a substitute product I am listing for your convenience only.
Some of the affiliate programs I am involved with but not limited to are Amazon, Notebookingpages.com, and all those partnered with Share A Sale, Impact Radius, and Google Adsense. I will continually update this list if I become associated with any other affiliate programs.
Please be aware that Amazon and Google AdSense use a type of platform that may place random and irrelevant ads below my posts. My hope is that the ads are relevant to your needs as they use special algorithms to procure those ads. Also know that those products they promote in those ads do not necessarily mean that I have personally purchased or used those products.
If you have any questions regarding my disclosure policy or my affiliations, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
