Privacy and Disclosures

Did you know people make money from blogging? I know. Like–what?!?

Okay, so, maybe you’re a bit more tech-savvy than I am and were well aware of that fact. In any case—yes, blogs can be a source of income for bloggers and I want to be upfront with you about that. If I can figure out a way to share my life and personal interests and earn money for doing it, then “Yay, me!”

But here’s what I won’t do: I won’t compromise my integrity or your trust just to earn a buck. If I include a review of a product, it will be my honest opinion. Nonetheless, I’ll be sure to let you know if I’ve been asked or compensated to review it (highly unlikely, but still- I’ll let you know if it happens). However, I do accept and keep free products, services, travel, event tickets, and other forms of compensation from companies and organizations. The compensation received will never influence the content, topics or posts made in this blog; the views and opinions expressed here are purely my own. And just a head’s up- if I do make any claim about a product (use a quote, statistic, etc.), I don’t work for them so you should verify all that with the manufacturer or provider.

Just to be sure you know (and to comply with the new FTC ruling), this blog does not accept any form of cash advertising, sponsorship, or paid topic insertions.  Advertisements are generated by a third party ad network (and those advertisements will be identified as paid advertisements). I really want you to have a good experience here in my space, so I’ll do what I can to make sure you aren’t bombarded with ads.

However, I am a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for me to earn fees by linking to and affiliated sites. This just means that if I have a link to an Amazon product in a post, I earn a small fee if you click through and decide to purchase that item.

Also, I do not share personal information with third parties nor does this blog store any information about your visit other than through the use of cookies (which helps to analyze and optimize your content and reading experience). You can turn off the use of cookies at anytime by changing your specific browser settings.

While I will always strive to conduct the business of this blog with consistency and integrity, some of these policies may change over time, so please be aware that this is subject to change without notice. This most current version was last updated in January 2017.
