Managing a Home Disclosures and Policies

I have been doing some giveaways, reviews and affiliate links more recently on the blog, so I wanted to update my disclosure, privacy and comment policies. So in order to comply with the Federal Trade Commission’s guidelines concerning the use of endorsements and testimonials in advertising, I felt it important to provide this disclosure policy to you.

As of this date, here are my disclaimers:

1. I won’t make stuff up. I will never review, giveaway or recommend a product to you unless I have used it/touched it/thoroughly enjoyed it first. I will tell you my honest opinion on a product. Also, in the interest of positivity, I will only post it if it is good. Instead of a negative review, I will contact the company’s rep. You will only hear of the good stuff I love.

2. Yes. People give me stuff {including money}. Sometimes I receive free products, services, and other forms of compensation from companies and organizations in exchange for a review or post on my blog. If I am posting about a product it should be assumed I was given one for free, unless otherwise stated. Occasionally I do buy products/services myself and am so thrilled I want you to know about it. The compensation received will never influence the content, topics or posts made in this blog.

3. Yes. Some links can make me money. One way I earn income through this site is through commission based on purchases through affiliate linking. Purchases made through affiliate links do not add any cost to you, the consumer. If I link to a product, service or company it should be assumed that it is an affiliate link and I will earn a commission on any purchase you make, unless otherwise stated. I will never link to something that I wouldn't use myself {see #1}.

4. I love to hear your thoughts. I really enjoy hearing from you through my comments, but for everyone to enjoy their experience here please be respectful, keep all comments on topic, and please only link to external sites if they are relevant to the post and your comment. Any comments that don’t live up to this will be deleted, without notice, for any reason – that is my right as owner and writer of this blog.

5. I won’t sell your information. When you give me your information for a giveaway, by joining my subscriber list or for any other reason, rest assured I will not give your information away. That information is used solely to get you the information or product that you requested/won.

You should know that my loyalty is always with MY READERS.

And I never want you, the reader, to feel like I am selling you a product or service. I want you to feel like a good friend is just letting you know about her experience with a brand or product.

Thank you for reading and supporting this site, without you, there is no blog!
