Disclosure Policy

This blog is currently in the early stages of becoming a FOR PROFIT blog. I am fortunate to be able to stay home with my son instead of working a full-time job outside of the house.  I spend A LOT of time on this blog, preparing content and writing posts - I love it! I am generally open to using this blog as a form of income to help support my family.  

I currently accept paid advertising in the form of sidebar ads you can purchase through the passionfruitads.com service via my Sponsor page. I also feature a few select affiliate links of brands and companies I personally like and may make a small commission from sales purchased through those ads or in-post links.  I only post items that i genuinely like or own and highly recommend. Such links are not influenced by advertisers. I have and may in the future take on a sponsored post or review a product/service so long as it fits the aesthetic of my lifestyle and my readership. If and when i do a sponsored post or product/company review I may be compensated for doing so. Such posts will be clearly noted as sponsored posts.

Sponsored posts are always my honest opinion of the product/brand and do not automatically result in a positive review. Your own experience may vary. I am in no way, shape or form responsible or liable for a varying experience, may it be positive or negative, on the readers part. 
The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely my own unless otherwise stated. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.
