Let’s just talk about disclosing stuff on this blog.
Without trying to sound too fancy or too mysterious, I’m just going to tell you how I feel about disclosing samples and blogger perks on Anthologie and what I do to make sure everyone knows what is going on!
Events and Invites
If a brand invites me to an event or to try something (for example, at a restaurant), I will tell you in the post usually within the first or second paragraph.
Samples and Such
Anything sent to me as a sample to review, or not paid for with my own money (for example, given to me in a goodie bag), will be labelled with an asterisk. That’s one of these things: *
As with the above, I occasionally post sponsored links. They should be non-intrusive and have been carefully chosen by yours truly. They will also be marked with an asterisk. If you have a concern with these links, please let me know!
I do make use of affiliate links occasionally. It would be great if you could use them. They don’t really make me much money – not even enough to cover the cost of running this website. But every little bit helps.
There’s no reason for me to ever be dishonest on this blog. I’ve turned down some shady PR requests before and I will probably do it again. I think especially in the world of gluten free food blogging that it’s so important to be really transparent because a glossed over review can be detrimental to the health of ourselves and others!
Glad we could have this chat! If you have any questions or comments, I’d love to hear from you!
