Policies, Procedures, and Disclaimers

Now for the more business-y stuff regarding what RMT is about… please email me at realmomtime(at)gmail(dot)com with any questions and/or concerns.

ADVERTISING. Please note that WordPress may at times advertise on this blog as it is not self-hosted. The ads may appear in two forms: In display at the bottom of my blog posts OR attached to random wording in my posts (these will be hyper-linked with double underline as supposed to single-line hyperlinks that I’ve added to enhance content, please hover over any link before clicking to see where it will take you!). As I am not ready to “monetize” this site, it’s a slight inconvenience that I am willing to accept, and I hope you can, too. Thank you for understanding.

DISCLOSURE OF MATERIAL CONNECTIONS. Unless otherwise individually stated, I have not received any compensation for the writing of my blog posts. I have no material connection to the brands, products, places, persons, or services that I have mentioned. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.” (Thanks to Michael Hyatt for the tip here; copy herein borrowed and posted with his permission as stated on pages 219-223 from his book Platform.)

PRODUCT REVIEWS. I am now open to product reviewing. Meaning, if you are part of a company who would like for me to review your product or service, please contact me via email with your request. I will be happy to consider the review of free products in exchange for a fair and balanced blog post of my and/or our family’s experience with said products. And I mean a fair and balanced post. These will NOT be phony, positive reviews just because I got something for free; RMT has never and will never be “that blog.” These posts also will be clearly labeled as a “REVIEW” in the post’s title, complete with the product’s name, type, age range (if applicable), manufacturer or parent company, and retail price (and source). I’ve also created a new and dedicated Category called “Product Reviews” to keep these posts separate from my unsolicited praises of other products and services (such as my RoomMates post, which was born from entirely organic origins). Finally, REVIEW posts will contain an extremely clear – and legally appropriate – disclaimer at the end of the posting so you know whenever I’ve received a product for free in exchange for my review (which shall override the above disclosure).

PHOTO POLICY. Photos posted are my own unless otherwise credited in caption. I am OK with the “borrowing” of my images, but please credit appropriately (c. <year> Real Mom Time (RMT) ) and link back to the blog. Thanks!

COMMENTS POLICY. Please comment freely, but please keep it civil, courteous, and classy, RMT’ers. I want to keep the RMT environs as tidy and snark-free as possible, please. Oh and PS – While it might take a day or two, I will do my best and try to reply to *ALL* comments because this journey is as much about you as it is me, and I respect the fact that you are taking time out of your busy schedule to be here. Same goes for any comments that I receive on my Facebook page and your Tweets, too.

Thank you for reading!
