Recently, the Federal Trade Commission released new rules for Disclosure Compliance. These rules are set in place to ensure that readers or viewers of web media (blogs, Youtube videos, etc) know if the blogger/presenter is sponsored, endorsed or partnered with a different company. In blog terms, the readers need to know if the blogger is making money by sharing a link, product, or service. As has grown, so have costs associated with running and maintaining it. Listed below are several ways I offset those costs.

In compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume the following about links and posts on this site:

  • Any/all of the links on are affiliate links. This means that if you click on the link and buy certain items, I will receive a small commission. The price is the same for you, though! Thank you for your support.
  • If I post an affiliate link to a product, it is something that I personally use, support and/or would recommend without an affiliate link.
  • I sometimes review items that are sent to me for free. All of my opinions regarding them are my own. I only endorse products that are in alignment with my ideals and that I believe would be of value to my readers.
  • If a post is sponsored by a company, I will disclose that within the post. My husband calls me “the gold standard of uncompromisyness.” It’s his silly way of saying that I am very picky about what I recommend, and that holds true for sponsored posts. If it’s not something I would use with my family, I won’t recommend it.

    I stepped on a semi rusty nail on Friday. It did go through my shoe and skin and bleed. My husband and first aid person there cleaned it out right away and kept it bleeding for a while. It still hurts a bit to walk but no bleeding or swelling. Do I still need a tetnus?

      Kimberly, I am not qualified to give medical advice, sorry! If it were me I would seek the opinion of a doctor and ask lots of questions.

    I write for as a Paleo examiner and because I love your site would like to direct readers to your site. IF possible, could I use pictures from your site when it is directly about your site? For example, I am going to write a ‘Top Paleo Sites’ review and would like to have a picture to go with your website.
    Just let me know! Thanks! Marie
