This is a personal blog written by myself and reflects my honest opinions. I am contacted daily by businesses and organisations that wish to be featured here in some sort of capacity, and I say no to most of these. However, as my contact page plainly states, I accept private advertising and charge administration fees for giveaways. I also accept the occasional sponsored post if I feel that the compensation offered in return (either monetary or goods/services) is acceptable and the post itself falls within the realms of what I deem to be relevant not only for myself, but my audience too.
So what does this all mean? First, in the interests of transparency, I’m happy to be open about this here. Second, so I’m clear and because I realise not everyone will actually read this section, each post that has been initiated by a third-party will disclose that arrangement, in whichever form it takes.
Now and then free stuff gets sent to me. It’s nice. It’s a perk of being a blogger, I must say. I do not ask for these, and thus do not in any way feel obliged to talk about them if I don’t want to. However, if I like a product I’ll say so.
I enjoy working with brands, either for short term campaigns or long term relationships. I have brokered my own blogging partnerships in the past, and will do so in the future. These too are disclosed right from the beginning, as are affiliate relationships: for instance, I am an affiliate of Booktopia.
