Comments & Content

What about sponsored content?

I do not normally write sponsored posts (see Notes below). However, if my blog status changed and a post was ever to be sponsored by a company, I would disclose this clearly at the beginning of the post.

As for my social media pages where I use Amazon & other affiliate links for product recommendations, I will include a link to this post or put “(affiliate link)” in the post.


  • I never allow (and nor am I allowed to add) any paid advertisements or paid promotions of any kind.
  • I do not write any sponsored posts.
  • I only recommend/link to merchandise with which I have experience or that I would personally feel comfortable recommending to my own family and friends.
