Update June 5, 2016:
The purpose of this blog is to encourage other women and give myself a place where I can keep my sanity. At this time, that’s all it is intended to be. If, in the future, it becomes something else, you’ll be the 2nd to know (after myself and my husband)
I completely stole this from Ms. Kerri Jackson Case – I’m very good with copy and paste. Why did I steal this? Because Ms. Kerri has a sense of humor and a way with words. Maybe someday, when I’ve been an official blogger for a while, I’ll develop a way with words. And maybe, the longer I’m married to my Punny Geek, I’ll also develop a punny sense of humor.
“The FTC seems to think that you need to know certain things about blogs you read. In the interest of not getting sideways with the government, I’ll provide the following disclosure. Truth be told, I can’t imagine anyone in the federal government is the slightest bit interested in what I write here, but in case you’re curious:
This is a personal blog written and edited by me. If you use my words, give me credit. I probably swiped the jokes [and stories] from one of my very funny friends [or my Punny Geek], but I’ll still take the credit. It currently has no advertising, sponsorship, or paid insertions. I write for my own purposes, the same reason I [scrapbook: to keep a record of things I don’t want to forget]. I am influenced by my [relationship with God], background, occupation, experiences, the weather, my mood, [general sentimentality, and an addiction to food and beverages with pizazz.]
I am currently not compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites, and various other topics. For better or worse, the views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely mine. I am an expert on very little. Any claim to know something for certain is just hubris on my part.
This blog abides by word of mouth marketing standards. I believe in honesty of relationship, opinion, and identity. If I decide to take compensation, in the form of cold hard cash or trade, that content, advertising space, or post will be clearly identified as paid or sponsored content. This blog does not contain any content which might present a conflict of interest.
For the record, if you want to bribe me with [adulation or food & drink], I can be bought.
