The Owner of this Blog creates content approximately twice a month as a Brand Ambassador for two companies. Although the Owner has a working relationship with both companies and receives compensation, the Owner agrees to only share honest opinions about their products.
In a nutshell: I am the author of this blog and on occasion, write blog posts that I receive compensation for. However, I only accept sponsored posts for topics/products that are relevant to my blog content and my readers.
Other disclosure policies:
- #ad: a sponsored tweet where a brand has paid me to copy and paste a certain message to share without modification.
- #gotitfree: a product was sent to me complimentary. These products are sent to me in exchange for a consideration of review. My opinions of the product are honest and my own.
