This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me, Mary.
This blog accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation.
I created this blog as a place to be able to encourage others and to provide resources to help make life a little easier, healthier, and more enjoyable. I look through and try lots of resources so that I can bring you only the best of what I find…there is a lot of stuff out there! I know your time is valuable.
I am just a mom who likes to research. Any of the information you receive is for educational purposes only. Please do your own research and seek the advice of a qualified professional. Any information you receive is NOT intended to diagnose or treat any conditions.
This blog abides by word of mouth marketing standards. I believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. The compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog. That content, advertising space or post will be clearly identified as paid or sponsored content.
I also do a lot of reviews~ many times I receive free products in exchange for a review. I always give an honest opinion about a product so you can make an informed decision about that product.
Some of the links you click to purchase items will be affiliate links. That simply means that the company will pay me a small percentage of the sale, at no cost to you.
I will and do accept and keep free products, services, travel, event tickets and other forms of compensation. It does cost to operate this site, so the compensation received helps to maintain the upkeep. It also helps to pay for training and educational expenses that I may obtain in order to be a more proficient writer and blogger.
I occasionally mention products that I purchase on my own and just want to share with you~ like I would a friend.
I am sometimes compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. I will always give my honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely my 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.
Just remember that I will never promote products that I do not believe in. Whether I am compensated or not, my opinions will always be honest.
Thank you for being a part of The Encouraging Home community and for supporting the continuation of this blog.
