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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
