DISCLOSURE POLICY

In 2009, the Federal Trade Commission {FTC} revised their guidelines regarding endorsements and testimonials in order to protect the public from any intentionally errant or misleading advertising that has been paid for by a group or company. Since this blog is a source of income and may occasionally incorporate endorsements or testimonials, it is important to disclose the following to you:

  • The content of this blog is a source of income for me and therefore may be used to promote products, services, or other businesses.
  • I will only choose to promote products/services/businesses that I have, in fact, used and that I feel will be beneficial to you, the reader.
  • Products provided to me by my advertising partners for my review are given to us free of charge with no cost to ourselves. This does not ensure a positive review of the product in any way.
  • You can trust this site. I will always give my genuine opinion about a product or service whether or not I am partnering with the service provider and/or receiving payment to do so.
  • My number one priority is accuracy and fairness to you, the reader, and I would never compromise the truth at the expense of my integrity.
  • Mentions of associated products/services/businesses within the content of this blog may or may not be noted as an affiliate in every reference.

I hold myself to the highest standards of integrity and strive to deliver interesting, helpful, and encouraging content while generating a small profit to compensate myself for my time, research, and ideas. I love and appreciate my readers and make it my goal to be up front and honest with every piece of content published.
