This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me, Lindsay Maines.

I do occasionally accept and keep free products, services, travel, event tickets, and other forms of compensation from companies and organizations. Two things on that:
1. If I do, it’s something that I think provides value to readers of this blog..
2. You, as a reader, will be made aware of it, so that you can filter accordingly in your mind.
But, I want you to know that my intentions in this space are straightforward. I’m writing for you, and for me, because I value storytelling and narrative. (Oh, yeah, and cause I want to sell a book. No secret there, friends!) If, along the way, I’m doing things to pay the bills as well, they’ll be things I believe in, and things I think you’ll dig. And I’ll disclose them very clearly.
To put that more obliquely: (For you legal types)
This blog abides by word of mouth marketing standards. We believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. The compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog. That content, advertising space or post will be clearly identified as paid or sponsored content.
I also reserve the right to use affiliate links of carefully selected partners whose products or services I believe in, and that I believe my readers may enjoy. This will be done sparingly, and with reader experience top of mind. Again, if it’s in a post, on a page, or in my sidebar, it’s there because I picked it and I loved it.
I belong to the Lifetime Moms Advertising Network. The ad content that’s in my banner and my skyscraper are generated through the network.
