The Federal Trade Commission is making it mandatory for bloggers to disclose whether or not they receive something of monetary value when those items are mentioned on their blog, so here is a rundown on how the blog generates money:
I occasionally receive products to review and giveaway. I will give you my honest opinion on a product. I also sometimes receive compensation for sharing information about certain companies.
Occasionally a company will pay me a small monthly fee to advertise on my blog. I will not accept advertisers that I do not approve of. I have in fact turned people down before. This blog is a reflection on me and my beliefs, I will not support or promote items I do not personally believe in.
When I send you to another site like Amazon or Target.com for a great deal and you buy something through my link I receive a small percentage of the sale. Whatever I receive comes from the company and does not affect your purchase price. This is just plain fun for both of us! You get a great deal, and I get a little in return. Thanks for supporting All Things Target!
Whenever I have received something in return for sharing information with you, you will see something like this in my post:
**Thanks to such and such a company for providing me with a gift card to share this information with you, all thoughts on this subject are my own.
For those of you that prefer legal mumbo jumbo, this is for you:
