To comply with the recent FTC ruling over marketers getting paid to write stuff, I offer the following disclosure policy. If you’re reading my blog, you should assume the following:
-I make money from almost every post on this blog, If there is a post where I don’t make any money from, I might update it and add some links here and there to make sure I do make money from it.
-All outgoing links on this blog are sponsored, if they are not, then I screwed up and will have to correct it soon as I want to be paid for my work, the same way you do.
-Every product I write about on this blog, I get for free. If I didn’t get it for free, then there was a miss-communication with the company that sent it and I will be billing them for the cost so the product becomes free.
-I make money from every tweet I send out on Twitter. If I didn’t make money on the tweet, then it was an oversight on my part and it will be corrected soon.
-If you email me, all of the information in your email is mine to do with as I please, such as exploit for financial profit, use as blackmail, or quote on my blog.
-The T-shirts you see me wear at trade shows. I get paid to wear them. If I didn’t get paid to wear them, then it means I ran out of paid shirts and had to wear a free one. In which case, I will go to the company that gave me the free shirt and ask them to sponsor it.
-If something on the Net is making a lot of money, you can bet I will be in on it. If I’m not in on it, then it was an oversight on my part and it will be corrected soon.
-Just because I get paid to blog, tweet, wear T-shirts, etc. does NOT mean I will give you or your company a positive review, blog post or endorsement. As a matter of fact, chances are pretty high that I might slam you.
Hopefully, the above statement clears up any misunderstanding you may have about my blog posts or Twitter tweets or Facebook Posts. If you have any questions, you can contact me at my contact page. Just remember what I said about emails.
