Because the FTC requires bloggers to provide disclosures whenever there could be hidden interests or unspoken biases related to recommendations, this is meant to cover the bases and state outright:
If I link to someone’s blog, review a product, make a recommendation, or
otherwise direct your attention to any material outside of this website, go
ahead and assume I’m getting paid to do it.
That said, in most instances I am not getting paid for material on this website. In rare instances where an incentive could be construed, I will do my best to point it out explicitly on a case-by-case basis. External links to other Internet sites should not be interpreted as an endorsement of the views or privacy policies contained therein.
Content on this website is not affiliated whatsoever with the educational institutions or organizations with whom I work, or the Boards on which I serve. It is strictly the opinion of the author and is not intended to be legal or strategic advice. The author bears no responsibility or liability for damages purported to have arisen from acting upon the information provided.
As related to any of my book reviews you may run across…
Per the FTC regulations, please note that books are received for review for free by publishers or authors. For every book that is reviewed – whether sent by publisher, author or books purchased, they will be graded with an honest opinion.
