Disclosure Policy

paid for by payperpost

I've been blogging for over three years. (most of us know this) How many times have I promoted (or demoted) an item or a service that I feel strongly about? Like, every time I post. I know, I've said this before, but it's something that continues to ring true to me.

Now with payperpost and other services that offer a stipend for my opinion, I want to make it clear to everyone (myself included) that I commit to always and only express my truest thoughts in the world - including this blog.

Recently I came across this great site that allows bloggers to create a personalized disclosure policy. One that applies to our individual expressions. It takes less than five minutes to create and upload. There's a forum where you can check out other disclosures for reference. You can add a button, or create your own, for your sidebar or bottom menu.

And with this new age of "paid opinions" I believe it is important for everyone to have a disclosure policy. Even if we're not getting paid to talk about a product or service, it's good to know the intent of the blogger.

Now when I go to new blogs, I specifically look for their disclosure policy. I want to know what I'm reading is the truest expression of the blogger.

I imagine, as I grow as a person and a blogger, my disclosure policy will grow with me. For now, here's my first simple disclosure policy, created at
