I disclose my personal and business relationships.

I write TaraGerner.com myself.

TaraGerner.com is a blog written and edited by Tara Gerner. I do not accept guest posts. For any questions about this blog, please contact me.

Writing is work. It takes time, and I accept compensation from companies in exchange for the time I spend writing about them, their products, and their services.

Because TaraGerner.com is a positive space, I almost never post negative product reviews. In some cases, I have been compensated to try a product, have not liked it, and reached an agreement with the sponsor to provide feedback directly without posting here. The products about which I write are those that I liked and would continue to use myself.

TaraGerner.com accepts advertising in many forms.

TaraGerner.com is part of my business, Feels Like Home Creative Media, LLC, and I sell advertising, sponsored posts, and sponsored social media mentions. I accept and keep free products, services, travel, event tickets, and other forms of compensation from companies and organizations. I display advertisements generated by third party ad networks including Raptive and Google Adsense. Because I do not have direct control of these third party ad networks, they may or may not reflect my personal values.

I disclose all business relationships.

TaraGerner.com abides by word of mouth marketing standards. I believe in honesty of relationships, opinions and identity. The compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics, or posts made in this blog. That content, advertising space, or post will be clearly identified as sponsored or affiliate content.

I write paid content.

As the owner of this website, I am compensated to provide an opinion on products, services, and other topics. The thoughts and opinions expressed here are always my own.

I will only endorse products or services that I believe, based on my expertise, are worthy of such endorsement. I will never post advertising, sponsored content, or affiliate offers for products that I would not personally use or that conflict with my personal beliefs. Still, product claims, statistics, prices, and other representations about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.

I share affiliate links.

I am an affiliate with several companies and may receive a commission if a reader clicks through a link on my blog and makes a purchase. This commission causes no additional cost to the customer. I have relationships with the following affiliate and referral programs: Amazon.com, Commission Junction, Coupons.com, E-Junkie, Escalate Network, ShareaSale, Swagbucks, and VigLink.

This is a business.

Unless stated otherwise, you should assume that TaraGerner.com has an affiliate relationship or other material connection to the providers of goods and services linked to on this blog. In addition, you should assume that I may be compensated monetarily or non-monetarily when you visit, purchase goods or services from, or take any other action on a third-party website linked to on this blog. You should always perform due diligence before buying any goods or services online or offline.

Honesty and integrity are very important to me.

Even though I may receive compensation for posts or advertisements, I always give my honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely my own. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.
