^^^Hey, what’s that?^^^
Because we obviously don’t have enough things to do in a day, the FTC has updated their disclosure guidelines for bloggers. As you know, I have a disclosure page and I disclose at the end of each post any material connection to products/services mentioned on this site. Apparently, that’s not enough, because by the time you get to the end of a post, you may have already clicked on a link. Now I have to put it up top.
Can we say overkill?
Here are the buttons you might see up there…
And here’s what they mean…
<–Acceptance of Free Products, Services, etc.
I received free products, services, tickets, invitations, etc, from a company, organization or individual in consideration for review publication. I am not required to publish a positive review, and all opinions stated are my own.
I was paid, whether directly or indirectly, for content. Where no opinion is stated, it is purely advertorial in nature. Where an opinion is stated, it is 100% my own- whether good, bad, or ugly.
I use affiliate links every chance I get. These links allow me to earn credit or a portion of the proceeds for any sale or action converted when readers (i.e. you) click on them. You can bet if there’s a link to Amazon it is an affiliate link! While I do occasionally manually insert affiliate links, it is typically done automatically through an ad service that passes all links on my site through a third party filter to check if the site being linked to has an affiliate program. If so, I will be credited for any sales generated through that link and will receive a portion of the proceeds. The page that is displayed, after being redirected through the filter, will be the page that was initially linked to. At no time is a link redirected to any page other than the one that was originally linked to. Because I use services that automatically create affiliate links, I may not always be aware of their inclusion, so you will see this at the end of each post.
I’ll Always Be Honest
When I state my opinion on a product or service, it it just that, my opinion. While the space on my site may be monetized, my opinion cannot be bought or sold. I will never intentionally endorse a product/service that I cannot stand behind. My site is a family friendly site, and all products/services on my site are screened with that in mind.
I appreciate you, thanks for stopping by, and thanks for coming back!
