  7. Sheri says:

    Hi Carrie,
    That FTC article was very interesting. I am not a blogger but from a consumer perspective it’s important to be aware too.

    Have a great weekend!


    1. Carrie says:

      Sheri – I’m glad you enjoyed it. And yes it is our duty as publishers to be transparent with the consumer.

      With that being said, there is nothing wrong with sponsored content and paid partnerships. This is a business that I (and others) have to monetize somehow in order to be sustainable longterm. But the consumer does deserve to know the difference between true editorial content and paid content.

      Thanks as always for reading along.
