Comment Policy

“Treat others as you would want to be treated”. “If you don’t have something nice to say don’t say anything at all”. These are two phrases I was always told over and over by my parents growing up. I think they are completely applicable when it comes to the blogosphere! While I encourage you all to comment and share your thoughts with me and one another, let’s make sure any criticism is constructive and not destructive. The goal of my blog is to create a place where you can all express your thoughts and feelings openly without fear of being brought down by others. Let’s raise each other up versus bring each other down.

 

Disclosure Policy

The Federal Trade Commission is a government agency that focuses on the protection of consumers, to ensure that products and services advertised are described honestly and clearly. While this blog is mainly focused on bringing you all what I hope you’ll find to be great content, it will also be a source of income for myself. This means, on occasion, I will include endorsements and/or testimonials for various products, services, and/or businesses. Please review the following disclosures as well as the FTC’s latest guidelines here.

  • I will only promote products/services/businesses that I have personally used and/or feel will be most beneficial to you.
  • My number one priority is you. I will never compromise your trust and not tell my true and honest opinion just to make some money. So you can be assured I will always be honest with you!
  • Products/services provided to me by an advertiser for my review is given to me free of charge with no cost to myself. This does not guarantee a positive review for said product/service.
  • I will always give an honest and open review of a product/service/business whether I am partnering and/or receiving payment from said product/service/business. Your trust is of the utmost importance to me. So being honest with you and maintaining your trust is my number one priority.
  • Products/services/businesses may or may not be mentioned within the content of my blog noted as an affiliate in every reference.

I will hold this blog to the highest standard while at the same time generate a small profit for compensation in my time, research, and ideas. But at the end of the day my goal is to provide you with the best content at the highest quality I can possibly achieve.
