Translation: I don’t mind sharing but please email me to ask permission. No one likes to feel as if something is taken from them and I spend ALOT of time creating content for this website. Let’s do the right thing!
I feel like this should go without saying but BE KIND! Just because we think something in our head doesn’t mean we should share it with everyone else. Everyone’s opinion is welcome on my site but I cannot allow attacks on myself or anyone on my site. You know this already but trolls are everywhere.
The Federal Trade Commission has guidelines to protect consumers (you!) from advertising that is intentionally misleading or downright not true. They require clear disclosure on testimonials and endorsements. Personally, as a consumer, I am really glad these rules exist and I want to be straightforward with you about the opinions on my website. I pride myself on being a honest source of information, so I want to be open about this topic. I hope this website becomes a source of income for me, therefore I will probably promote services or products on it. I promise to only promote products or services that I have actually used and I will by 100% truthful about whether these were given to me. I would never give a positive review just because a product was given to me. That would go against my vision for ethelruth.com becoming a trusted source for my readers. I want to share products or services that I use and love with you!
