A word about sponsorship disclosure

The Federal Trade Commission is asking that bloggers who use content marketing disclose all sponsorships. I thought it was a pretty darn good idea. So here it is:
Sponsorship Disclosure
You may have noticed that this site features a small number of sponsored posts as well as affiliate links to the YNBAM Amazon store and other advertisements in the sidebar.
I put in time to research and provide the information as well as my opinions. The goal from the beginning has been to share my experiences in Natural parenting as well as information and products that help me along the way. In order to review or test, I do at times receive free products or services. For example, before testing various baby bottles ---I may receive (free of charge) bottles from various companies. You can be assured that every review given is my honest opinion. I will not recommend or advertise for products or services that I would not use or purchase. Period. Fair enough? Just a note about the images in my sidebar. I do not accept paid advertisements on this site, but I will trade with other blogs and websites. Let me know if you’re interested in a swap! Thanks.
Now, in legal terms...
