Disclosure Policy

This policy is valid from March 6, 2017 and subject to change without notice. This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me, Elisa Giorgio. For questions about this blog, please contact me at: mpblueprints <at> gmail <dot> com

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) requires blogs and social media outlets to disclose any compensation they might have received for online reviews and endorsements. You can see the revised guidelines here.

The owner(s) of this blog is compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the blog owner’s. If I claim or appear to be experts on a certain topic or product or service area, I will only endorse products or services that I believe, based on my expertise, are worthy of such endorsement. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.

In other words:

* This blog is a source of income for me and may be used to market or promote products, services, or other businesses. I accept forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation.

* I only choose to promote products/services/businesses that I have used and that I feel will be helpful to my readers.

* Although products provided by my advertising partners for review are given to me free of charge, my opinions are always 100% my own and receipt of a product does not ensure a positive review of the product in any way.

* I believe in honesty of relationship, opinion, and identity. I will always abide by word of mouth marketing standards and give my genuine opinion about a product or service regardless of whether I am receiving payment.

* My number one priority is being real and transparent to my readers, and I will not compromise my standards just to get paid.

I hold myself to the highest standards of integrity and strive to deliver interesting, helpful, and encouraging content while generating a profit to compensate me for my time, research, and ideas. I love and appreciate my readers and make it my goal to be up front and honest with every post I write.
