I do have to find ways to pay for all of this, so sometimes there will be sponsored posts, affiliate links, or other forms of advertising on these pages.
In the interest of full disclosure and trust with you, the reader, I’m posting the following very dry statement to make this very clear and to abide by the FTC Blog Disclosure guidelines:
This policy is valid from 20 April 2018
This blog is written and edited by me and accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation.
This blog abides by word of mouth marketing standards. We believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. The compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog. That content, advertising space or post will be clearly identified as paid or sponsored content.
The owner of this blog is compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. Even though the owner of this blog receives compensation for our posts or advertisements, we always give our honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the bloggers’ own. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.
This blog does not currently contain content which might present a conflict of interest. Any future content that could present a conflict of interest will always be identified.
See? That wasn’t too terribly stern was it?
Summary: I occasionally accept products, press trips, discounts or other compensation but I will always disclose this transaction in the corresponding blog post, youtube video or instagram post. I will only offer honest opinions in these posts and I will always disclose any and all paid-for promotions.
When it comes to product reviews, I may receive a product to review, but I will only publish reviews for products that I can honestly recommend to you, the reader. Products received that don’t make the cut will not receive a published review on this blog.
