According to FTC guidelines, influencers are required to disclose any ‘material connection’ between them and any advertisers.  Basically what that means is, if I have been given a product to review, I have to disclose to you that it was given to me.  If there was any kind of gain (financially or otherwise) by me, I have to tell you that up front.

The saying goes You have to spend money to make money.  Blogging is no different.  It cost money for the domain, and web hosting.  While I agree that Sam does work hard for my money, I have to believe there might come a time when he says to me it’s time to see some sort of return on his investment in my desire to achieve world domination.

So, you can assume that I will, at some point, try to make some money with this blog.

What does that mean for you?

Not much, actually.  I means you may or may not see sponsored posts here at Fabulously Organized.  It also means that links to any products I recommend or endorse may or may not be affiliate links.  That means, there is the possibility I might make a wee bit of money should you choose to buy anything from following those links.  The good news is, it won’t cost you anything extra, and it might mean that it saves you a wee bit of money, because those advertisers might offer a discounted price for my readers.  The better news is, I might make a wee bit of money which will go towards keeping Fabulously Organized online. It will probably only pay for a cup of coffee, or a glass of wine.

Because the FTC requires it, I will always be very clear and concise in telling you up front if a post is sponsored, or contains affiliate links.  I have been in enough legal trouble in my life, I don’t need to add any more.

If there is a sponsored post, or affiliate links, you can rest assured that I absolutely love the products I’m telling you about.  In fact, you can just assume that if I’m writing about it here on Fabulously Organized, I have already told my mom, my sister, my cousins, Sam’s family, and all of my friends.  They will be tired of hearing about it.  But that means I love the product or service that much.  I will not be endorsing any goods or services here that I do not use, and do not absolutely love.

The goods or services may be free to me, but my opinion is not for sale.  Not even for a million dollars and/or a date with Robert Downey Jr.

More legal stuff they make me say
