Disclosure (updated March 2013)
First, I want to thank you for reading APB. I hope you like the content you find here, and I encourage you to contact me with any questions you might have.
Here are the specifics about how I run APB.
- I don’t write sponsored posts, and I don’t participate in any linking/affiliate programs.
- The advertisements on my blog are provided via WordAds by WordPress.
- I am sometimes given free perfume by perfume companies and PR folks. I don’t seek this out, but if I think I might like the perfume, I accept the offer with the understanding that it doesn’t guarantee I will write about it. If I write about a product I received for free, I disclose it.
- I occasionally sell perfume that was given to me on my “Perfume for Sale” page. I understand that some bloggers don’t do this, and that some do in a less open way. And I understand that some readers might disagree with this practice. If I ever got to the point where I was making more money than I spend running my blog, I might reconsider. But so far that hasn’t come close to happening!
In short, I blog for myself and for you, not for money or free products. Thank you for reading!
I am sometimes contacted by people who want to invite me to review products, participate in various perfume-related thingamajigs, and so forth. If you are one of those people, thank you for reaching out to me. I work in communications myself, so I appreciate the job you all are doing. The information below describes what kinds of activities I do and don’t participate in.
If you want me to review a product or write a sponsored post. I’m sorry, but I don’t write sponsored posts or write solicited product reviews on my blog. If you want me to write a review for another site or a magazine, please get in touch (see below).
If you want to send me a press release. By all means, please do. You can email me at anotherperfumeblog(at)hotmail(dot)com. However, please note that I do not routinely post announcements or similar on my blog. Also, please don’t email me the same press release repeatedly. If you want to ensure I’ve seen your release, send me an email, and I will confirm. Lastly, if I ask you to remove me from your distribution list, please do so.
If you want to invite me to write or participate in an event. Great! I like keeping up with industry events, and I love being invited to write or contribute content to other endeavors. You can email me at anotherperfumeblog(at)hotmail(dot)com. But please be aware that I’m unlikely to sign on for opportunities that are strictly promotional or commercial in nature.
If you have any questions or feel I’ve left anything out of this page, let me know. Again, thank you for reading.
