To comply with FTC regulations, I offer the following disclosure policy.

Hi! I’m Beth. This blog, Black Spruce Hound, is my personal blog. Though I did not start it with an eye toward making bank, I do earn money from every post published on this blog, mostly through third-party ads.

This blog, Black Spruce Hound, currently uses third-party ads from Google Adsense. I am also an affiliate on Amazon, so certain posts will contain links to Amazon.com. If you click on an affiliate link and buy something from that site, I may receive a very small commission. It does NOT result in additional charges to you or cost you anything extra. Mentions of associated products within the content of my blog may or may not be noted as an affiliate in every post.

The money made from both third-party ads and affiliate links helps pay the fees to keep this site up and running. Blogging ain’t free, yo.

Every post and every page is my own creation. I have never accepted money in exchange for a review. Sometimes a brand will send me free stuff, and I will talk about whatever they sent me. I do this because I want to or because they asked me kindly. Whatever opinions I express in these posts are mine, positive or negative.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at blacksprucehound [at] gmail [dot] com.
