At my site and blog I strive to be transparent and up front about my intentions. To answer questions you may have about my policies and practices here, I’ve written this disclosure page that addresses commonly asked questions. If you have any other concerns, please email me using the mail icon in the sidebar. I’d love to hear from you!

Comment Policy:

I welcome ideas and feedback in the comment section of the blog! We can all learn and grow from one another’s experience and questions. Because I feel the world would be a better place if we were all respectful and kind to one another, I ask that you season your comments and input with grace.

Our audience consists of men and women of all ages, including teens. Please refrain from harsh words, R-rated language, and cutting criticisms. As you form your response, please keep the old adage in mind: “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.” You can express yourself without resorting to name calling and foul language.

Also, I reserve the right to delete spam comments that include links to X-rated sites or try to entice readers with false claims of get-rich quick schemes and other similar spam comments. These types of posts waste readers time and distract us all from the focus of the posts. They are disrespectful and will be treated in kind.

Let’s keep it classy, people! :-)

Disclosure Policy:

The FTC (Federal Trade Commission) has established guidelines regarding endorsements and testimonials to protect the public from intentionally misleading or errant advertising that has been paid for by a group or company. This site and blog is a source of income and may from time to time include endorsements or testimonials, and as such, I feel it is important to disclose the following information to you, the readers.

  • The content of this blog is a source of income for me and therefore may be used to promote products, services, or other businesses.
  • I will only choose to promote products/services/businesses that I have, in fact, used or that a trusted friend or mentor has used. Also, I must feel confident the product will be beneficial to my visitors.
  • Products provided to me by advertising partners for review are given to me free of charge with no cost to me. This does not ensure a positive review of the product in any way.
  • I will always give my genuine opinion about a product or service whether or not I am partnering with the service provider and/or receiving payment to do so.
  • The number one priority is accuracy and fairness to the readers, and I would never compromise the truth just to make a buck. Ever.
  • Mentions of associated products/services/businesses within the content of my blog may or may not be noted as an affiliate in every reference.

The purpose of this blog is to deliver helpful, inspiring, interesting information while generating a small profit to compensate for the hours that myself and guest writers put in to research, testing, and writing. I appreciate each and every reader that honors me with their time and attention. I consider it my duty to hold to the highest standards of integrity to be upfront and honest in every post that is written here.
