We were taught at a young age that it is wrong to lie or deceive, and we have no intention of doing so with you, the readers of The 3 Star Traveler. So here is what you can expect when it comes to disclosing whom we work with and in what way.
This blog serves two purposes. It is a creative outlet to connect with people around the world who hold similar interests, and it serves as a platform and portfolio for my work. The ads on this blog do serve as a way to earn some passive income, we accept products for review, on occasion we will do a sponsored post and we sometime go on media trips.
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…
You will find a disclosure statement within each blog post that says:
- We received this product for review. We were not required to write about it and we received no compensation for doing so. The only compensation was the book, visit, food, gear we wrote about. No dollars.
- This post was sponsored. This means we received a monetary payment to publish this post and often product as well.
- You will find that our social media shares related to these posts have one or more of these hastags: #ad #sponsor #sponsoredtrip #paid #mediaevent #mediatrip #media
In all cases, thoughts and opinions are our own. We don’t review things we don’t like. We especially would never accept money to post about something that we didn’t like, or wouldn’t buy ourselves.
