As a Boston Massachusetts Mom blog, I like to write. Heck, the tag line of this site says as much. Yet, I love getting paid for my time too.

I love sharing things I find, thoughts I have, and experiences I encounter. Yet, some of those findings and experiences are my own discoveries, and sometimes it is brought to my attention by other people. Often those other people want to provide me with a free product or service, or want to pay me for my time or my space. Sometimes I am okay with that and sometimes I am not. Sometimes I am happy to share and sometimes I am not.

If you don’t see something on this site, it means one of two things: (1) I haven’t discovered it yet or (2) I discovered it, but I didn’t like it at all. If I did like it, it then has to fit with this site. For example, I may love a certain brand of lawnmower, but since I don’t write about, err, lawns, it wouldn’t make sense for me to share it with you. Or I may discover the lawnmower is a death trap, and then I wouldn’t want to write about it either.

So, if I decide to write about something, I want to be transparent about it. If I decide to do a giveaway, I want to let you know how I got it. So here are the legal thingy-ma-jigys that explain as much.

Yes, I have them. So you if you see a link to Groupon or some other third party site, I may be paid for you clicking on it or buying something after you have clicked on it, or for both clicking and buying. Or I may not be paid at all.
