Although I currently live abroad, eating in instead has a largely American readership and the Federal Trade Commission mandates a disclosure policy for bloggers. So, even when my cooking, eating, drinking, and blogging take me far away from the days I spent sitting at my desk drafting briefs and preparing forbearance agreements, here I am doing my best to comply with laws and regulations. (I’m a rule follower at heart and an ISTJ on the Myers-Briggs.)
With the re-design of eating in instead, I decided I might try to make some money from all this cooking, writing, and photographing I’m doing. Plus, it would help my argument when I tell my husbanders that he can’t eat yet because I need to take a picture (or 10 pictures) first. That said, I don’t want to be a total sell out, since blogging for me is about cooking and sharing good food. So, what does this all mean?
- I may have some ads on my site and if you click on them, I get a small amount of compensation. That said, advertisers never influence the content I write.
- I don’t get paid to write reviews and I don’t accept offers to do so. Any mentions of products or services on this site are my own views and I spent my own money buying the darn thing to try it out. If I ever do get products to review, I’ll first be amazed that it arrived to Morocco, and then I’ll donate the products.
- If I love a product (ahem, my Le Creuset Dutch Oven, for example) then I might create a link so you can get the same dose of fantastic. If you make purchases through the link, then I get a commission. That said, I never draft content for the purpose of inserting a link.
Phew. Done. Now, go browse some recipes and start eating in!
