Flip Flop Gypsy is edited and created by Michele and Kevin O’Connor. As much as I would like to say this is solely a labor of love, in the end, this blog/site is set up to make money. How do we do that? We work with partners, sponsors, and other affiliate programs. By clicking a link to one of our tours, product reviews, or recommendations, ads, or other links, we may, with no additional cost to you, make a commission. Those commissions help us maintain and keep Flip Flop Gypsy updated with lots of new and exciting stuff.
Why do I have to tell you this? Well, in 2009, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) revised their guidelines regarding endorsements and testimonials in order to protect the public from any intentionally errant or misleading advertising that has been paid for by a group or company. Since this blog is a source of income and may occasionally incorporate endorsements or testimonials, we felt it was important to disclose the following to you, our readers: The content of our blog is a source of income for us and therefore may be used to promote products, services, or other businesses.
But… trust me… we love you, our readers and followers too much to mislead you. So, our promise to you is:
• We will only choose to promote products/services/businesses that we have, in fact, used and that we feel will be beneficial to our readers.
• Products provided to us by our advertising partners for our review may be given to us free of charge with no cost to ourselves. This does not ensure a positive review of the product in any way.
• You can trust us. We will always give our genuine opinion about a product or service whether or not we are partnering with the service provider and/or receiving payment to do so.
• Our number one priority is accuracy and fairness to our readers, and we would never compromise the truth just to make a buck. Ever.
• Mentions of associated products/services/businesses within the content of our blog may or may not be noted as an affiliate in every reference.
Some of our paid links will include banner ads, text links to other sites, phone numbers to call for services. These links are generated by third-party providers such as Google Adsense and Commission Junction.
We hold ourselves to the highest standards of integrity and strive to deliver interesting, helpful, and encouraging content while generating a small profit to compensate us for our time, research, and ideas. We love and appreciate our readers and make it our goal to be upfront and honest with every post we write.
