This policy is last updated 25 April 2016.

This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me (Shelly Najjar), and is open to contributions from guest writers. For questions about this blog, please contact me.

This blog does not accept any form of cash advertising, sponsorship, or paid topic insertions. All products featured on this blog have been purchased by me unless otherwise indicated. I will accept and keep free products, services, travel, event tickets, and other forms of compensation from companies and organizations if offered, and any post or page containing information about these products, services, experiences, or events would be clearly marked. I write for my own purposes. However, like everyone else, I may be influenced by my background, occupation, religion, political affiliation or experience.

All current advertising (in the form of videos shown at the end of some posts) do not provide revenue for me (Shelly) or this blog and are not part of the content of the posts. They are placed there by WordPress.com because I have chosen not to pay for the No-Ads Upgrade ($30/year – that’s a lot of polish!). Those advertisements are marked above the upper left corner with “About these ads” and do not provide me with any benefit or income.

I am not compensated to offer opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are mine. I will only endorse products or services that I believe, based on my experience and expertise, are worthy of such endorsement. If I were to receive compensation (or free products, services, etc.) in the future, all opinions shared in this blog would be my own, and any post or page containing information about the compensation would be clearly marked.

I participate in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com. Affiliate links will always be clearly identified. At no extra cost to you, you will be supporting me and this site by buying items or anything else on Amazon for 24 hours after using one of my affiliate links. I only use affiliate links to things I believe are worth recommending. I get a small portion of the sales from any purchase made on Amazon.com up to 24 hours after using one of my affiliate links to get to the site. To do this, Amazon may serve content and advertisements, collect information directly from visitors, and place or recognize cookies on visitors’ browsers. I am not in charge of the Amazon.com site, or anything you may see on that site. (If you don’t want to support me in this way, just clear your browser’s cookies before making a purchase on Amazon, or wait for the 24 hours to end).

Guest contributors are responsible for disclosing their affiliations and any compensation they receive that may affect their post content.

I am as accurate as possible and double check facts, but it’s always wise as a reader/consumer for you to verify (with the manufacturer or provider) any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service.

This blog does not contain any content which might present a conflict of interest.

Other blogs: I also have three other blogs, which may have different disclosure policies. You can read their policies here:

I created this policy by modifying the results of a disclosure policy wizard, available for free from DisclosurePolicy.org.
