There are affiliation links on my blog and sometimes within posts. I may get a commission if you click on one and purchase something. These cost you nothing, but help me pay bills, buy groceries, in short take care of my family, so if you click on my links and buy something, THANK YOU. I truly appreciate you and your support.
~ We have to receive an item to review it – if an item is not received then the post would be considered a sponsored post and require payment. If you are interested in this, you can email Lisa at email@example.com.
~ To comply with FTC regulations, all links in review blog posts must be nofollow.
~ We do not return review items, they are compensation for our time and the promotion that you receive through my post and sharing on social media.
~ To comply with the FTC regulations, we will have a disclaimer at the bottom of review posts and an informal disclaimer towards the top of the blog post as well.
~ Review items must be the item(s) that you agreed to send us via email, including the size, color, etc that we mentioned. If products are not selected by us, they might not be something that we would like or use. For our review to be a mutually beneficial relationship, we must be able to get value out of the product by using it. If it doesn’t fit or doesn’t suit our lifestyle or tastes, it has no value to us. If you send an item other than what we agreed upon, we reserve the right to refrain from posting about the product. In this case, we will return the item to you if you send us a prepaid return shipping label.
~ If you agree to send multiple items, all items need to be sent. If you only send a portion of the items that we agree upon, we reserve the right to refrain from posting the review until the additional items or sent. If you are unwilling or unable to send additional items, we will return the items you did send if you mail us a prepaid shipping label.
~ We only post honest reviews. If we have a problem with your product we will contact you and you will have the option of choosing to have us not review the item we received. If this happens, we can return the item if you send us a prepaid shipping label.
~ Our goal is to review items within 3.5 weeks of the package arriving. If you need our post to be up on a certain date or with a certain turn around time, you need to inform us of this at least 7 days prior to the deadline. We prefer to be informed of any deadline requirements prior to the item being mailed out.
Giveaway related policies:
~ We do not pay shipping fees related to giveaways. We prefer that you send prizes directly to the winner. If you mail the winners item to us, we will mail it out to the winner if you send us a prepaid shipping label.
~ If you want to have a giveaway without a review, this is considered a sponsored post and requires payment. If you are interested in this, you can email Lisa at firstname.lastname@example.org
~ To comply with Facebook and Google Plus terms of service, we do not allow entries for Liking a Facebook page or commenting on a Facebook wall or for interacting with a Google Plus page.
~ We will not host giveaways unless the winner is able to get something entirely for free, including shipping.
Sponsored Post and ad Policies:
~ Only the blog owner (Lisa) organizes sponsored posts and ads.
Press releases, contest announcements, new product announcements and sale announcements are all considered sponsored posts and require payment.
~ Payment must be received prior to the post or ad being published.
~ Sidebar ads are available for $35/month for 125×125 ads or $65/month for 200×200 ads.
~ Sponsored post rates begin at $35 per post with 1 link and go up depending on the length of the post, who writes the post, etc.
To get a sponsored post rate quote, email me with how many words the article needs to be, its topic, how many links you require.
I will tweet and do a Facebook shout out for you for $5. If you prefer, this can be adjusted to two tweets or two Facebook shout outs instead of one of each.
~ Ads and sponsored posts must be family-friendly in appearance and the sites that they link to must be family friendly also.
~ All sponsored posts will have my paid post disclaimer image at the bottom.
~ I give everyone the benefit of the doubt in assuming that they are assuming that I will act ethically and follow Google’s terms of service surrounding their sponsored blog post. If that is not the case, I will not issue a refund if this is not brought up prior to my accepting payment and/or writing the post and/or publishing the post.
~ Any details including but not limited to blog post angle, words used to link, type of link, images included, length of post, etc must be mentioned and agree upon prior to payment. If guidelines regarding the post are brought up after payment is made and the post is published, I cannot guarantee to be okay with the changes or issue a refund.
