Advertising & Disclosure Policy
This blog gladly accepts paid ads; however, I limit ad space and reserve the right to decide if a product or ad is suitable for my blog and my readers. I also accept sponsored posts and paid product reviews, depending upon the topic or product. If my site and your company might be a good match, please email me for my media kit with details about my advertising rates and current stats.
Our Journey Westward is written and edited by blog owner, Cindy West. This disclosure policy is valid from October 2009 into the foreseeable future.
Advertising and Sponsorship:
I abide by word of mouth marketing standards and believe in honesty. Paid ads appear in my blog sidebar. Occasionally, I may post about an advertiser’s product or service, but any such content will contain only my honest opinions. Any sponsored posts will be identified as such.
I often review products I purchased myself, if I believe such a review would be helpful to my readers. I will only endorse products or services that I believe are worthy of such endorsement, regardless of compensation. If I receive compensation for a review, or if I receive a product in exchange for a review, I will disclose this within the post.
The views expressed on this blog are purely my own opinions, and are not influenced in any way by whether or not I’m paid for the review. I am never required to give a positive review of any product, service or website, regardless of compensation.
Note: Any product claim, statistic, or quote about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer/provider; your experience with any product may vary.
I maintain affiliate relationships with several companies offering products I have found worthy of promoting. As part of this affiliate relationship, I receive a commission on any sales generated via click-throughs of these affiliate links. Links in my sidebar or within blog posts may be affiliate links.
I am owner and author of Shining Dawn Books, and author of Homeschooling Gifted and Advanced Learners. Many of my posts contain links to my website or specific products from which I earn a living.
Please contact me with any additional questions.
