There have been some interesting developments in recent weeks regarding the FTC. (Federal Trade Commission) While I seriously doubt what I do here has anything to do with their new ruling, I have an instinctual aversion to having to deal with the Federal Government.
I mind my business, they mind theirs and we're good. So here we go.
To the readers of this blog, I do not get paid for my articles, links, content or for any reviews I might post.
The links I have posted are there because I believe they are reliable sources of information and the creators have earned my respect. There's lots of crap on the internet and it's refreshing to have safe havens on which to rely. They don't pay me in any way. Should you discover they are not living up to expectations, tell me and I'll review.
If I post a book review, it's because I LOVED the book. I'll make note when the book was given to me. I'm so picky as to not be much of a reviewer. So if you see one; I'm impressed. Not paid.
I am an author of Romance. It is my genre' by choice. If you happen to buy one of my books as a result of reading this blog. Way Kewl! If not, well I enjoy having you here and we'll chat it up anyway.
My intent is to have an open dialog and encourage people to read. If someone, somewhere happens to make money as a result more power to them, they didn't pay me to promote them.
Okay, that's out of the way. I feel better, how about you? smile So did I make it clear enough that I'm not getting paid? Royalties to my books aside, as I have no way to link them to the blog anyway..so there!
I'm done being a brat now. Carry on.
