Disclosure & Advertisements
My posts and articles are positive. When negativity is encounter through products, books, restaurants, hotels, etc., I do not write about those experiences.
I take part in many media trips locally, nationally and internationally. I write about what I like and strive to be objective in my evaluations, which reflects in my feature articles.
On another note, I do pay for some trips, dinners, products, wine, etc. that I feature. I simply enjoy writing about what I’ve experienced.
I do have some affiliate ads on my blogs. If someone clicks through and purchases, I receive a nominal amount. My affiliate ads are from companies from which I have experienced good service.
If someone I review favorably ever wants to run an ad, I would be delighted. Monetizing my website, without compromising my integrity, is highly desirable AND ethical.
