I should share with you that it’s my goal to make money, at least a little, from this blog. I spend money in ways I never would have imagined to maintain this blog, enhance my education, travel to the far reaches of the Pacific to dine at a tiki hut that has gluten-free hushpuppies. All of that costs money. It’s only right I try to recoup a few of my expenses, right?
To comply with the recent FTC ruling that says I have to tell you I may make money from this here snazzy blog, I offer the following disclosure policy. If you’re reading my blog or having coffee in my kitchen, you should assume the following:
- I make money from affiliate links in blog posts. I only endorse products I own and fully believe in, no soulless schilling here. If you make a purchase from a link in my posts or from ads on my blog, I may make a small commission. It’s probably less than you think.
- Most products, ingredients and travel experiences I write about on this blog have been purchased at market value with money from my own pocket. If I did receive the product at discount or compliments of a company, I will always disclose that to you.
- If you email me, leave a comment on my blog or Facebook, send me a tweet, you should know the information may be quoted on my blog.
- What I am not: a critic. I occasionally receive a complimentary product, ingredient, meal or travel perk; it does not mean I promise a glowing endorsement. If I have a less than stellar experience, know that I probably will not write about it. We all stand to gain more from building each other up and I simply enjoy writing recommendations more than reviews. Thanks for understanding.
Hopefully, the above statement discloses all you (and the FTC) need to know about my blog and attempts at making a dollar. If you have any questions, you can contact me via my contact page. Thanks for joining me in the kitchen!
