This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me. All content is ©KirstenL4W 2006-2012 unless otherwise noted. If you do feel the need to quote my material you must link back to me. While there may be some ads on my blog, they do not in any way influence what I write. I write for my own purposes. However, I may be influenced by my background, occupation, religion, political affiliation or experience.

I will never receive compensation in any way just for having, maintaining or updating this blog.

I am not compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely mine. If I claim or appear to be an expert on a certain topic, 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.

I do participate in affiliate programs, however these programs and linked products and services do not influence the content or design of this blog in any way. I simply write whatever the heck I want and if something I write about can be linked to an affiliate, then I’ll link it. The presence of affiliate links does not influence the content in any way.

This blog does not contain any content which might present a conflict of interest.

I like comments and encourage discussion. However, if your comment appears to be spam, it will be deleted as spam is not tolerated. I reserve the right to edit comments since I have that ability, but generally won’t unless there’s a good reason (like the time my mom tried to comment to let me know about her new blog and left the wrong blog address).

Comments are dofollow, but only after 3 comments. This is to prevent fly-by-night spammers coming by to leave links in comments for their own benefit. Not only do I use Lucia’s Linky Love plugin to manage this, I also personally visit the website or blog of every new commenter to get to know them better and hopefully make a new friend.  However, if the link you leave leads me to a commercial site and not a blog, consider this fair warning that your comment may not be approved as it will be considered spam.

Linking Policy

I link to blogs and sites I like, pure and simple. If you comment or contact me asking to exchange links, you’d better have some content that I like and find interesting or else you’re not getting a link. I do assess my blogroll from time to time, and if a site isn’t doing it for me anymore, off it goes. Also, I don’t have a reciprocal link policy, so if I link to you, I don’t attach the condition that you must link to me in order as well. I just hope you like my content enough to want to link to me!
