This blog is a personal blog written and edited by Jacqueline Zepeda. For questions about this blog, please contact me.
The purpose of Indiefatigable.com is to help busy women like myself find balance in their lives via nutrition, time and our budgets. It does take time to create all this content, so I do accept paid advertising, sponsorships, affiliate programs and other forms of compensation.
The Federal Trade Commission has rules for Disclosure Compliance for online media. These rules are set in place to ensure that readers or viewers of web media (blogs, YouTube videos, etc.) know if the blogger/presenter is sponsored, endorsed or partnered with a different company. In blog terms, the readers need to know if the blogger is making money by sharing a link, product, or service. It takes time and money to run Indiefatigable.com. Listed below are several ways I offset those costs.
In compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume the following about links and posts on this site:
Any/all of the links on indiefatigable.com are affiliate links. This means that if you click on the link and buy certain items, I will receive a small commission. The price is the same for you, though! Thank you for your support.
If I post an affiliate link to a product, it is something that I personally use, support and/or would recommend, even without an affiliate link.
I sometimes review items that are sent to me for free. All of my opinions regarding them are my own. I only endorse products that are in alignment with my ideals and that I believe would be of value to my readers.
If a post is sponsored by a company, I will disclose that within the post. I am very picky about what I recommend, and that holds true for sponsored posts. If it’s not something I would use with my family, I won’t recommend it.
I run network ads and Adsense, both of which I have some blocking control, but only if I know an ad that doesn’t fit the mission of IF is there. Please let me know if you see anything odd!
When I run a giveaway, I usually have received a free product to review, and the company has sponsored a free product to give to one of my readers. All giveaways are paid or affiliate advertising. The review is my own opinion, and the company in question does not edit or approve it in any way. They also don’t compensate me for reviewing the product beyond providing me with a sample. Giveaways and reviews are typically kept separate for a very good reason: I do accept paid giveaways, as giveaways take a great deal of time to administrate and are a fabulous form of advertising. The bottom line? Reviews are free, between me and my readers. Giveaways are paid advertising, most of the time.
Some of my integrated campaigns for companies include a certain number of tweets or Facebook updates about the company, but I always strive to make those interesting, authentic content for my readers at the same time.
AMAZON DISCLOSURE: I participate in the Amazon Services, LLC. Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon properties including, but not limited to: amazon.com, endless.com, myhabit.com, smallparts.com, or amazonwireless.com.
