I want to be 100% clear on what I will and won’t do with advertising:
I will not: sell editorial space so please be assured that anything I’ve written is simply my own thoughts or opinions. I never accept sponsored posts or product reviews that ask me to use marketing copy, I only accept offers that allow me to be creative and honest in my writing.
I will not: allow pop up ads. I never look at them on other’s blogs because they annoy me.
I will: Only offer genuine reviews for companies that I think fit well with my values and can offer something of substance to my readers (See: Halloween Candy Cookie Pizza) These reviews/giveaways are clearly marked as such. I turn down many more review offers than I accept in an effort to only offer high quality, honest reviews here at DIY Mama.
I will: be transparent about when I use an affiliate/referral link to endorse a product that I love. That means that sometimes when you click on a link and purchase a product I recommend, I might get some credit or make few cents. And then I might take those few cents and buy a Starbucks (soy, hazelnut white mocha, no whip, kids temp in case you were wondering). If an affiliate link is used it is because I’m recommending a product that I genuinely like, use and want to share (for example, a book I am reading or really great baby product).
That being said, thank you for reading my blog! Here are the current ad companies/affiliates that I am using. I do my best to approve all ads prior them running on my site – please feel free to email me if you have any questions or concerns! And again, thank you for blessing my family by reading.
