BigGirlBlue is a lifestyle blog. As of December 1, 2009 the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) requests that all bloggers who make an income (or other gain) from their blogs disclose the specifics to their readers.
Potential income sources throughout this blog include banner ads (affiliate and advertiser), text links, product sample reviews, paid mentions (very occasional), and product samples.
Throughout the majority of this blog I talk about products I like based on their appearance in the online shops I visit or first hand experience. In some cases a shop may have an affiliate program. I do have an affiliate relationship with some companies but not with others. If I post an affiliate link for a product I would get a percentage of a sale should someone click on the link then purchase something. I do not limit my favorites selections to companies who only have affiliate programs. I will gladly mention a company without an affiliate relationship so long as I like a product they offer. And if I mention a specific product it really is because I like the look of it.
Reviews / Product Samples
Product reviews are done from items I have purchased myself or from samples that have been given to me by companies wishing to have their product reviewed. In my reviews I try to include both positive and negative features. I will not automatically give a positive review because a company has provided me with free products. If I like something I say so. If I don’t like something I say so.
If you have any questions about a particular post or product please feel free to contact me through the contact form and I’ll do my best to answer. I will not answer any questions in regard to the amounts I make.
