My Promise To My Readers

If I wouldn’t recommend something to my friends and family, I won’t recommend it to my readers either.  I will not link to (or review)  any product, service, or site that I don’t personally find valuable and in keeping with the mission of this blog:  living intentionally & encouraging, inspiring, and challenging women.

Advertising/Sponsors

Intentional.Me does not currently accept paid advertising or sponsorship.  If this changes in the future, I will clearly label such things, and let you know up front.

Affiliate Links

Intentional Me is an Amazon Affiliate.   Occasionally you will see links to products and services on this blog.  I will receive a very small commission for any purchase you make through Amazon links on Intentional.Me.  You may continue to shop on Amazon.com after clicking through a link on Intentional.Me, and any such purchases will also qualify for my affiliate commission.   I will only link to products and services that I feel are valuable to my readers, and line up with this blog’s purposes.   This is a simple way for me to bring in some income for my family, while still maintaining my focus on living intentionally and being inspiring and encouraging to others.

Product Reviews / Other Compensation

Intentional.Me will sometimes accept and keep free products, services, travel, event tickets, and other forms of compensation from companies and organizations.  While this is rare, if I post a review about anything that I have received from a company or organization, I will always disclose that fact in the post.  Even though Intentional.Me occasionally receives compensation for a post, I will 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.  If I wouldn’t recommend something to my family or best friends,  I won’t recommend it to my readers either.  Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.

Other Endorsements

From time to time, Intentional.Me shares links to blogs, books, and more by talented friends I’ve met both locally and across the country.  While no money is changing hands for these links, I will still keep my promise to my readers:  I will only share what I find valuable and in keeping with the mission of Intentional Me.

Intentional.Me  abides by word of mouth marketing standards. I believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity.
