I am happy to review products if I think it is something you, my reader, would like to hear about. They will be written by me when a brand or PR company has sent a product to me or a member of my family in exchange for a review.  The review will be honest, even if there is an aspect of the product I don’t like, I will tell you about it as I passionately believe if it is something a consumer should know ahead of buying it themselves I will mention it.  I also don’t think the internet should be awash with only positive reviews.  I will include appropriate links to the brand’s own website, or an online retailer, alongside  a full review of the product with  photographs that either I have taken, or that have been supplied. It will be clear in the text that I have received the product in exchange for the review. I often review things I have bought and loved so you will know when I have paid for something too.

Advertorials/Featured Posts:

From time to time I may be asked, and paid, to host content that has been written and provided by a brand or PR company.  I reserve the right to change the wording slightly if I see fit but essentially this is not something I have written, but that I am publishing in exchange for a cash payment.  It may say it is in “collaboration with” or “in partnership with” or indeed “this is an advertorial”  but it will be clear to the reader, that this is an advertorial, not written by me and paid for.

Sponsored posts:

These are posts that I have been paid to write and publish on my blog. I will only do this on content I believe “sits well” with this blog and that means I will turn offers down too. This is not a review, I have not been sent a product. But it may talk about a product, or a company or services, often with a link to their website. These posts are marked with * in the title. Again this post may say “in collaboration”,  “sponsored” or “in partnership with”. For this post I will have been paid money or given vouchers in exchange for the post and have not been given a product.

Affiliate Links and Advertising Banners:

Some pages on my blog contain link ads and banner ads to other websites and services and are provided by a third party. I do not always personally endorse these products or services. Please check individual websites for their own privacy, cookies and disclosure policies.

Affiliate links are used throughout the site. If you followed the link to a retailer then made a purchase, a small percentage of the sale price would be paid to this blog. It doesn’t cost you anything extra.


Amazon Affiliate Disclosure:

I am a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.

Guest posts:

These are written by friends, often on a topic important to them, and have either been written because I asked them to guest post on my blog, or because they asked me if they could. Done because I love and support the blogger and am happy to promote whatever it is they are talking about. No money has changed hands.

Ambassador Roles

As an ambassador I am compensated for being part of a campaign, but that doesn’t necessarily mean with cash. There is no “per post” fee being paid or expected but it does mean that throughout the year I will mentioning them online, on blog posts and social media.  I may also share their press releases too. They are not paying me to do any of this so I will not be labelling it as an ad.
I take on all ambassadorial roles in the same way, as an ongoing relationship throughout the term and maybe afterwards if I feel it is appropriate.
