I believe in transparency and honesty. The following policies reflect my commitment to that credo.


This blog is authored my myself [Melissa Bolton] and occasionally by guest authors. Any images, posts, excerpts or quotes that are not my intellectual property will have the original source noted.


I allow [and encourage] sharing. Pin it, re-blog it, tweet it or Facebook it… whatever. If you would like to borrow any content from this blog, however, I do ask that you give me proper credit with a link back to the site.


This blog abides by word of mouth marketing standards. I believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. I am not compensated to provide opinions on products, services, websites or various other topics. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely mine or that of my guest bloggers’. If we claim or appear to be experts on a certain topic or product or service area, we will only endorse products or services that we believe, based on our expertise, are worthy of such endorsement. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.


This blog shares affiliate links, meaning I may receive a small commission for recommending a product or service. This is at no cost to you. I never recommend anything I wouldn’t use myself. If this blog contains content which might present a conflict of interest, that content will always be identified.


When commenting, I ask that you remain courteous and that you maintain a prudent sense of decorum. Thanks to new and creative efforts by spammers, all comments require approval prior to posting. Comments deemed inappropriate, divisive or otherwise inflammatory will not be posted. Leaving these sorts of comments may result in being banned from future commenting ability.


For questions about this blog, please contact me.
