http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2009/10/endortest.shtm  FTC guidelines on endorsements and testimonials.

In 2009, the Federal Trade Commission {FTC} revised their guidelines on endorsements and testimonials to protect the public from any intentionally errant or misleading advertising that has been paid for by a group or company. Since this blog is a source of income and may occasionally incorporate endorsements or testimonials, we feel it is important to show the following to our readers:

  • This blog is a source of income and may be used to promote products, services, or other businesses.
  • We will only choose to promote products/services/businesses that we have, in fact, used and that we feel will be beneficial to our readers.
  •  You can trust us. We will always give our genuine opinion about a product or service whether we are partnering with the service provider and/or receiving payment to do so.
  • Our number one priority is accuracy and fairness to our readers, and we would never compromise the truth just to make a buck.
  • Mentions of associated products/services/businesses within our blog’s content may or may not be noted as an affiliate in every reference.

We hold ourselves to the highest standards of integrity and strive to deliver interesting, helpful, and encouraging content while generating a small profit to compensate us for our time, research, and ideas. We love and appreciate our readers.  It is our goal to be upfront and honest with every post we write.  This disclosure policy is subject to change without notice and was last updated on March 28, 2015.
