The FTC thinks bloggers have too much influence over people, so they have a bunch of guidelines now…

Sometimes, companies give me products to try out. Sometimes, I write about my experiences with these products.

I ALWAYS tell the truth. If I find something hard or difficult to use, I’ll let you know. I’m not going to lie to you. I will even tell you I got to try the product out without having to buy it (now, that doesn’t mean I get to keep it).

For example – here is a review of The Cricut. I explain that I was sent the machine to try out, and I give an honest opinion of it.

No company has paid for me to go on an awesome trip or anything, but if one ever did, I would be honest about it.  Just wanted to let you (and the FTC) know about that.

Thanks for listening,
