Kindness matters, my friend, and it starts with you and me. If you don’t like something or don’t agree with a post, that is completely ok with us, however that does not warrant permission for negativity or demeaning comments. We love hearing from our readers, but please keep it kind and friendly. We know ideas are many, backgrounds are different, and people come from far and wide, but we believe we are all family in a sense and therefore should practice saying nice things and building each other up.
In 2009 the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) revised their guidelines regarding endorsements and testimonials to protect the public from any intentionally misleading advertising (yes it happens) that has been paid for by a group, organization or company. Since this blog may sometime in the future be a source of income and may occasionally incorporate endorsements or testimonials, we want to show you the bread and butter, the nitty gritty, the naked truth behind some (definitely not all) of our posts.
This blog accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation.
This blog abides by word of mouth marketing standards. The owners of this blog are compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. We believe in honesty and integrity of relationship to you, opinions and identity. The compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog, but we will always, always give our honest opinion. If something stinks, it stinks. And we will tell you! On the other hand, if it rocks, we would want to share it regardless of compensation (albeit an added bonus). Sponsored or endorsed content, advertising space or post will be clearly identified as paid or sponsored content.
To reiterate, even though we receive 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 our own.
