This blog is not primarily financially driven.
Beginning December 1, 2009, the FTC requires bloggers to disclose whenever there could be hidden interests or unspoken biases related to recommendations. So here goes…
First, the obvious: I am a massage therapist and fitness instructor. I sell massage sessions, workout programs, and products that I feel support both of there products.
Second, the less obvious: Per the FTC rules, if I interview someone and they grab the bill for lunch, I would need to disclose this. Ditto if I use an Amazon link that gets me 8 cents instead of an Amazon link that gets me 0 cents. If someone gives me a comfy t-shirt with a logo and I wear it in a photo, same deal. Disclaimers all over the place. This would be tedious for me and even more tedious for readers. But rules are rules. To cover myself and preserve your reading experience, please assume that, for every link and product I use, the following all hold true: I am receiving money from any company name mentioned. When I mention someone's name, there was some sort of exchange, be it lunch, a special deal, or money. Any links or products mentioned will create revenue for me if you click the link and buy. Just assume that all content will give me money if you consume it or engage with it. Any products I am showing or promoting, assume was provided for free or with a deal unless otherwise stated.
