Disclosure – The Full Monty
This blog is not primarily financially driven. We put it up in 2013 to build a community and learn from all you smart people.
That said, beginning December 1, 2009, the FTC requires bloggers to provide disclosures whenever there could be hidden interests or unspoken biases related to recommendations.
First, the obvious:We are bloggers and we write about stuff.
Second, the less obvious: Per the FTC rules, if we interview someone and they grab the bill for lunch, we would need to specify this. Ditto if we use an Amazon link that gets us 8 cents instead of an Amazon link that gets us 0 cents. If someone gives us a comfy t-shirt with a logo and we wear it in a photo, same deal. Disclaimers all over the place.
This would be tedious for us and a continual eye sore for readers. But rules is rules.
To cover our ass and preserve your reading experience, please assume that, for every recommendation, link, and product we use, the following all hold true:
ftc_food_250 ftc_gadgets_250 ftc_gotbusy_250 ftc_money_250 ftc_schwag_250 ftc_stocks_250
