To comply with the recent FTC ruling over bloggers getting paid to for reviews, sponsored content, affiliate income, etc. , I offer the following disclosure policy.

If you’re reading my blog, you should assume the following:

  • I make money from blog posts  on this blog (as many as possible).
  • There may be paid links on this blog – in that if I use my affiliate link I get paid a percent or flat fee of what is spent.
  • When I write about products, unless otherwise specified, I got that product free. I try to get free products that my readers would be interested in. I then review them for my readers.
  • I make money from tweets I send out on Twitter when they contain affiliate links or when companies pay me for a tweet.
  • If you email me, all of the information in your email is mine. I may quote you on my blog, especially if it's about how much you loved my post, a success story, question, etc. It may also be used as a negative example.
  • Just because I get paid to blog, tweet, etc. does NOT mean you're buying a positive review. I will be honest about how much I like (or dislike) the product/service/software/app.

Hopefully, the above statement clears up any misunderstanding you may have about my blog posts or Twitter tweets. If you have any questions, you can contact me at Just remember what I said about emails.

This disclosure policy was sponsored by my favorite web host, SiteGround. If you're starting a blog or looking for a new host, they are top rated. If you have a blog with over 100,000 pageviews per month, I recommend WP Engine. They were both created especially for WordPress and are ideal for bloggers.

Here are some discount codes for WP Engine that you can use to sign up. Yes, I make a commission if you do. Yes, I stand behind these recommendations. Thank you so much.
