The FTC has laws in place that require bloggers to publish disclosure policies if they intend to earn money from their blog. First, of course, I value my integrity. With that being said, I try to keep my blog free of any questionable content because I also value those that take their time to read what I have to say. I want to make sure my blog reflects that integrity that I value so highly.
Rest assured that I will always let you know if I am in any way being compensated in my posts. That includes affiliates, comped product, etc. My reviews will always be 100% my opinion, whether that benefits the product or not.
Below is my official disclosure policy.
