Business in the Front, Party in the Back

Okay, so first some bloggy business to attend to, but hang in there, okay?  There's a fun share at the end of the post (couldn't bore you with all business, right?!)! :>

In the interest of honesty, disclosure, and complying with the FTC's rules for disclosure for bloggers, I am posting a disclosure policy for this blog, Time Crafted.  It will become a permanent fixture, setting up home just under the blog's header, for reference.

"This policy is valid from 03 September 2010

This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me. For questions about this blog, please contact Karen at (timecrafted at gmail dot com).

This blog accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation.

This blog abides by word of mouth marketing standards. We believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. The compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog, but never the opinion of its author. That content, advertising space or post will be clearly identified as paid or sponsored content.

The owner(s) of this blog is compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. Even though the owner(s) of this blog receives compensation for our posts or advertisements, we always give our honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the bloggers' own. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.

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

I went in search for some help putting this policy together and found a non-profit site (to which I have no connection to....see? honesty!).  To get your own policy, go to

Hope you've hung around for the fun share! 

A couple of weeks ago, I played along with 504 Main's Tickled Pink blog hop.  The next Friday, Holly included my post, Mt. Everest {Hello} in her Spotlight.  It had been a crazy busy week and I missed seeing it.  But, I definitely wanted to share with you and give a shout out to Holly herself.  I recommend clicking your way over to 504 Main and saying 'hello'!

                                        I’m Tickled Pink at 504 Main

Her Tickled Pink Fridays are a heapload of fun and the creative variety of the posts being linked up is uber fantastic!  In fact, that's where I'm heading for some blog hopping, some inspiration, and a chance to see new to me blogs & meet the peeps who write them!

What are your weekend plans?  If you're from the States, are you road tripping, camping, bbq'ing or any other Labor Day weekend fun in store for you?  You know, I'd love to hear all about it! :>


  1. Ha, there you have it - I followed your link to Holly's blog and totally forgot to leave you a comment... ;) Congrats on being featured, Karen!

  2. I really thought I commented on this link. I was so happy to feature that post on Mt. Everest - an amazing challenge and quite a feat!

    Oh those pesky disclosure policies...I did mine awhile ago and try to be very careful to always disclose...I do not want the FTC coming after me.


Thank You for visiting! I appreciate and am grateful for all of You who craft some of Your time to leave me comments!
