A few years ago, I made the decision to monetize my blog. As a full-time mom, I welcome the chance to help my family financially; making money is not my focus for this site, but writing and maintaining my site do take time and brain power.
Disclosure statement (the short version):
Occasionally, I accept sponsored posts, but only when I feel it fits the focus of my blog or may benefit my readers. I will always give my honest opinions, regardless of whether or not I receive compensation.
Sometimes I use affiliate links within posts but these are only for products or curricula we recommend. Purchasing products through these affiliate links does not increase your cost; it simply means I receive a small percentage of the sale.
Again, income from this site helps our family, so thank you to for every click of an affiliate link!
The long (boring) version:
See Jamie Blog is written, edited, and owned by me (Jamie!).
This disclosure policy is valid from January 2011 into the foreseeable future.
Advertising and Sponsorship:
I abide by word of mouth marketing standards and believe in honesty. Paid ads appear on my blog, usually in the sidebar. Occasionally, I may post about an advertiser’s product or service, but any such content will contain only my honest opinions. Any sponsored posts will be identified as such.
I sometimes review products I purchased myself, if I believe such a review would be helpful to my readers. I will only endorse products or services that I believe are worthy of endorsement, regardless of compensation. If I am compensated for a review, or if I receive a product in exchange for a review, I will disclose this within the post.
The views expressed on this blog are purely my own opinions, and are not influenced by whether or not I’m paid for the review. I am never required to give a positive review of any product, service or website, regardless of compensation.
Note: Any product claim, statistic, or quote about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer/provider; your experience with any product may vary.
I maintain affiliate relationships with several companies offering products I have found worthy of promoting. As part of this affiliate relationship, I receive a small commission on any sales generated via click-throughs of these affiliate links; I don’t make much from these links, but I thank you for every click!
To potential sponsors:
This blog occasionally accepts paid ads; however, I limit ad space and I reserve the right to decide if a product or ad is suitable for my blog and my readers. I also accept sponsored posts and paid product reviews, depending upon the topic or product. If my site and your company might be a good match, please email me for my media kit with details about my advertising rates and current stats.
