On 12/1/09 the FTC put into effect rules concerning how bloggers disclose compensated interests. We take your trust seriously, and as advocates of transparency and honesty, we’ll tell you if someone pays us to appear on this site or one of its affiliates. If someone gives us a free product or service and we blog about it, we make our connections clear. No bones about it. But one thing that’s never for sale? Our opinion. Every review, whether sponsored or not, are 100% honest.

Sponsors are noted as such whenever they appear. In our Hill City Bride Twitter and Facebook feeds, any sponsored posts will be clearly denoted by the symbol *S, indicating this whether they paid for that content or not. See below for the official terms of use.

We pledge never to share your email with 3rd parties. We love comments, and the discussions within the community there, but this is a site about love – so we reserve the right to moderate and/or ban users who can’t play nice or post purely to self-promote. Ninja text linkers will automatically be banned.

We ask that if pictures from this blog are reposted, that accurate credit is given. Please do not post content without permission.

Thank You.
