This is “How I Roll”:
1. I don’t RECOMMEND a site, or product, until I have used it.
2. I don’t REFER a site unless I have signed up for it, used it, or am currently using it.
3. I don’t REVIEW a site, or product, unless I have been able to use it.
4. I am NEVER anything but honest on my posts, regardless of the compensation I have received. If I like it I will tell my readers. If I don’t, I will tell my readers. I don’t think I should hold back my experiences with sites and products, regardless of the outcome (good or bad or indifferent), or the compensation (money, product, being anointed Queen of the World, etc.) I receive.
5. There will be times when I just like a website, or buy something and like it so much, I have to share it with everyone. More often than not, this will be the case.
Here’s the deal – for those who read my blog, or for those who want me to review something for them on my blog – I’m HONEST. I will let my readers know the down and dirty, the good, the bad and the ugly, the nuts and bolts of it. My readers are who I am loyal to. My readers are the ones I am writing this blog for.
Here’s my “disclaimer/disclosure/ethics/morals” code to all those out there who want to be reviewed by a blogger who “cares” about what she is doing: Be prepared, I tell it like it is ALL THE TIME, come rain or come shine!
And to keep it all legal and enforcing to the the world of Blogging that I am doing the right things to keep the integrity of our industry, I have gone to www.disclosurepolicy.org and got myself a policy:
This policy is valid from 02 January 2010
