FTC Disclosure

This blog is not primarily financially driven. A lesson in disclosure.

This page is originally created by Tim Ferris, and has been modified to suit my personal business, podcast and reality (as per his approval for re-purpose & re-use).

Beginning December 1, 2009, the FTC requires bloggers to disclose whenever there could be hidden interests or unspoken biases related to recommendations.  So here goes…

Per the FTC rules, if I interview someone and they grab the bill for lunch, I would need to disclose this. Ditto if I use an Amazon link that gets me 8 cents instead of an Amazon link that gets me 0 cents. If someone gives me a comfy t-shirt with a logo and I wear it in a photo, same deal. Disclaimers all over the place. This would be tedious for me and even more tedious for readers. But rules are rules. To cover my ass and preserve your reading experience, please assume that, for every link and product I use, the following all hold true:

FTC Disclosure: Writer got fed.
FTC disclosure: Writer got some sweet gadgets.
FTC Disclosure: Writer got busy with member of story.
FTC Disclosure: Writer received mad scrilla (money).
FTC Disclosure: Writer got a helluva schwag bag.
FTC Disclosure: Writer got stock options.

Please feel free to use the text and images on this page with proper attribution. There is no reason why each blogger should have to reinvent the wheel.
