Disclosure is generally a good thing. Sort of like confession is good for the soul.
While I'm not a compensated blogger (not that I'd turn down some freebies!), I figured I'd go ahead and be in compliance with the FTC's mandate for bloggers.
This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me. This blog does not accept any form of cash advertising, sponsorship, or paid topic insertions. However, I will and do accept and keep free products, services, travel, event tickets, and other forms of compensation from companies and organizations.
This blog abides by word of mouth marketing standards. I believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. Any compensation received may influence the topics or posts made in this blog. That content or post will be clearly identified as paid or sponsored content.
The owner of this blog may occasionally be compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. However, the views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the blog owner. If I claim or appear to be experts on a certain topic or product or service area, we will only endorse products or services that I believe, based on my expertise, are worthy of such endorsement. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.
This blog does not contain any content which might present a conflict of interest.
