The ruthless and talented team of lawyers representing The Pet Blog Lady
I love being a pet blogger. I LOVE pets of all kinds and hence want to share my joy and interests with as many people as I can. Being able to offer companies an affordable avenue to advertise and to create an income for myself is also rewarding. It's a real joy to love what I do. It's very important that I follow guidelines that make me accountable to my readers and the regulatory bodies that oversee consumer protection. (On a side note, the Regulatory Body workout is totally not like the Beach Body workout...just saying)
It is very important that bloggers are transparent when it comes to being given product and/or monies in exchange for articles or product promotion. In fact, it's the law and clearly outlined by the Federal Trade Commission. If a blog post is sponsored, a disclosure statement will be made at the beginning of the post. If it is a sponsored Tweet, the hashtag #ad or #spon will be included in the tweet. Disclosures will also be made with Facebook posts, YouTube and Instagram if I am receiving a free product or monetary compensation for promoting a company.
Amazon Associates Program
Additionally, PetBlogLady.com participates in various other affiliate programs, and we sometimes get a commission through purchases made through our links.
Additional Notes on Product Promotion
We would never promote anything we don't believe in. That would be, well...just wrong. Many items we receive are donated to local animal rescue groups for their use and for fundraising auction items. There are costs to running a blog; Typepad Platform subscription, graphic design, Giveaway software, shipping, customs brokerage fees and time spent writing and researching. And coffee. LOTS of coffee.
