Pursuant to new FTC regulations, I’ve put up this handy, all-encompassing page of disclosures so that it’s perfectly clear when I’m writing on behalf of someone else.
People Who Employ Me
People Who Consult With Me
I do not write about people I coach or consult. If I do, I’ll have specific permission from my client and I’ll disclose the relationship.
Statement on Affiliate Marketing
At times, I get paid a commission for services and products I mention. When possible, I use Viglink, Linkshare, Commission Junction, Shareasale, and anyone else who will send cash my way for referrals. Generally, we’re talking cup-of-coffee money, not gas-money. Still, assume that I’m getting paid by someone when I link to items for sale.
I promise not to market crap to you.
If I link to something, it’s the good stuff.
Statement on Privacy
Assume you have no privacy anywhere on the Internet and you’ll never be disappointed. Unless we have a client or agency relationship, don’t ever submit to me anything you wouldn’t put up on a public bulletin board. Assume that everything is on the record, because it probably is. If you’re concerned about privacy of your information, don’t post it online ever. And stay far, far away from Facebook.
Statement on Content
This is my blog. It’s like my living room, only online. I do with it as I like, as you should do in your own living room. I reserve the right to do whatever I want on my personal blog with content, including updating, editing, and deleting without warning or notice.
Statement on Unsolicited Items
You’re welcome to send stuff to me, but you’re not getting it back. Ever. Especially if the cats get to it.
By sending me something to review, you understand that I may or may not review it, and I do not guarantee any outcome of the review.
If your product is great, I’m going to say so.
If your product sucks, I’m going to say so.
If your product is mediocre, I may not bother to say anything.
If I do review something, I will disclose it, no exceptions.
