Disclosures

Disclosure Policy

  • I accept and greatly appreciate sponsorships from companies both big and small. These sponsorships often help me offset the costs of attending events and conferences like BlogHer ’12. In exchange I offer honest, diligent promotion, professional representation, etc.
  • I accept free products, travel, services, etc. in exchange for honest, candid reviews. I do not accept payment for reviews, however, I occasionally run PR Campaigns and promotions for my clients and I am paid to do so. These campaigns and promotions will feature various types of promotion and content here on my blog which may include reviews. In those cases, I am being paid for my time investment and work promoting the brand. I will always state when any post is part of a compensated PR Campaign.
  • The fact that I am receiving the aforementioned products, travel, services, etc. for free does not influence my reviews or the claims I make on this site in any way. All my review posts are written honestly and with integrity. Sometimes I will keep a product at the close of a review if our family needs it, or really likes it. In cases where we don’t keep the item, I donate them to Good Will Houston.
  • I do offer advertising space to “sponsors” who I find reputable and appropriate for my blog. Ad Prices vary by Ad size, location, and length of placement.
  • I do have affiliations with companies that I trust and believe in. I am thrilled to be affiliated with the great organizations whose ads are featured in the “Sponsors” area of my sidebar. If you see an ad, you should know that I either make a small income from the pre-sale of those ads OR a small commission from sales generated through those ads. The exception to this would be any button or ad that raises money for charity in which case I make nothing (and happily so).
  • All these generous sponsors allow me the privilege to be a WAHM and spend more time with my son while providing for him.
  • As a professional, I chose to work only with those whose image I respect, whose products I believe in, and whose reputation I can be proud of.
  • All ad sales, reviews, and sponsorships are accepted or declined with my sole discretion.
  • I often write about products and services that I really like that I purchased with my own money. I will always state in my posts where an item came from and whether I purchased it or it was provided to me by a third party.
