Blog Disclosure Policies....

I have been formally disclosing since 2006...but did a lot of it even before then. :-)

I am currently experimenting with bringing revenue back to my blog. So far this just means Amazon Associates and possibly LinkBucks. I will gladly look over most products or websites and give my honest opinion about them. I do not sell links.

If I feel that I am endorsing anything, I will definitely let readers know any connection that I might have with the company involved. :-) 

I try to keep myself educated on all the international ethical guidelines/best practices for internet and online writing. I also endeavor to pass this effort to keep the Internet a "transparent" place where people can freely speak. 

To whom it may concern:
I will not write about sex toys or escort services. If you offer me more money, I still will not write about them.

Anyway the Disclosure Policy Generator gave me something close to what I just said.
Here is what it came up with as my disclosure policy:
-- This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me. For questions about this blog, please contact  iamthebluestbutterfly AT

--- This blog does not accept any form of cash advertising, sponsorship, or paid topic insertions. However, we will and do accept and keep free products, services, travel, event tickets, and other forms of compensation from companies and organizations.
--- This blog abides by word of mouth marketing standards. We believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. The compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog. That content, advertising space or post will be clearly identified as paid or sponsored content.
--- The owner(s) of this blog is compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. Even though the owner(s) of this blog receives compensation for our posts or advertisements, we always give our honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the bloggers' own. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.

Note: I usually try to turn spam into something positive like making me exercise.This post is exempt from the "Exercising for Comments" activity that I participate in.

Spam "comments" will be removed on a regular the only thing being exercised is my finger pressing a key to delete. Don't bother with your spam attacks.
