To comply with the FTC and be fully transparent, Musings From A Special Needs Mom does use affiliate links and other means to monetize this blog. Maintaining and running a blog takes time and money and by monetizing my site, it helps to offset the cost of keeping my blog going. I think it is important to be upfront with my readers and potential partners about how things work here at Musings From A Special Needs Mom.
MusingsFromASpecialNeedsMom.com is a personal blog written and edited by me. I love blogging because not only does it help my family financially, but I love to share about our life as a typical family with a little something “special”. I am a Down Syndrome Parent Blogger and Lifestyle Blogger, I focus on advocacy, Down Syndrome, special needs, education, health and wellness, fashion, travel, recipes, technology and more. I do occasionally do reviews or sponsored post, where I will inform you of either in my post. However the opinions, thoughts and experiences are my own and do not reflect those of my current or past clients. The posts will be unbiased and honest, and I will not write a 100% positive review, if I don’t have a 100% positive experience.
Occasionally I do accept and keep free product, services, travel and other means of compensation from companies. However, the compensation received will never influence the content of the post, and all opinions will be purely mine.
Amazon: I am part of the Amazon Services LLC Associates program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon properties, so there are times that I will use “referral links” to Amazon in my posts, but I will make sure to inform you of these referral links. If you do click on that link, I can earn up to 10% on all products you purchase during that shopping session, which again helps me pay for my blog and provide for my family.
Sponsored Links: posts with sponsored links, including links in reviews will have the NoFollow attribute to them, so as not to affect search engine rankings. This helps to keep MusingsFromASpecialNeedsMom.com and my partners from search engine penalties from paid links.
Third Party Advertising: please note that this site does use third party advertising to display ads on the sidebar or through the site when you visit it. These companies do use aggregated information (not including your personal information: name, address, phone number) to provide information about your visit to provide you information about goods and services you might be interested in.
