FAQs – BLOGGER QUESTIONS
A: I’m so flattered you would like to share my post! Thanks so much!!
In sharing my posts with your readers, I ask that you do not reproduce a post of mine in full or copy and re-post text word-for-word from this blog without my explicit permission. Please include no more than two photos from my original post onto your blog or website and please do not alter my original photos in any way (including cropping out watermarks) without my explicit permission. Lastly, please include a clearly visible/easy to find crediting link back to my blog somewhere in your post. That would be swell! :)
A: While I thank you for your interest, currently I am not accepting unsolicited guest post requests. I also am not accepting guest posts from businesses or requests for guest posts that contain links to a product or service, as this is considered advertising. If you are interested in advertising, please have your individual sponsors contact me directly to see if they would be a good match for my readership.
A: Woohoo! Thanks for your interest in sharing :) To share, please include a link back to the original post on Essentially Eclectic containing the link to the freebie download–please do not offer EE’s freebies for download on your site. Freebies offered here are always for personal use only unless otherwise stated.
FAQs – READER QUESTIONS
A: Affiliate links are a way for bloggers to earn income from their blogs. They are special links designed to track referral sales from the blogger’s website. When you make a purchase through one of these links, the blogger receives a small commission (amount varies) on the sale.
Good news is, it does NOT cost you extra when you make a purchase through affiliate links. Furthermore, NONE of your private information is made available to anyone other than the website from which you make the purchase. Bloggers are required by the FTC to disclose that their site may/does contain affiliate links, so be on the lookout for this disclosure! I will usually post this disclosure in a “P.S.” at the bottom of a post; my disclosure policy can also be found in a link at the bottom of my site, again under my “policies” tab in my blog’s menu bar, and again at the top of this page :)
A: Great question! I moderate my comments for a few reasons. 1) I love reading your comments! Moderating each comment means I get to read and relish in each and every glorious one :) When they’re published automatically, I might miss one. 2) Spam. Sometimes spam comments swim through the net and I don’t want these automatically published to my blog. If you’ve left a comment/question that hasn’t gotten a response, do feel free to give me a nudge by sending me an email!
Sometimes I may choose to not publish a comment if it contains vulgar, offensive, derogatory (etc.) language, if it is overly promotional of content unrelated to the post in question, or if it would be more appropriate in a private email to me. Essentially Eclectic is my happy place, so rude comments towards me or any of my readers will also not be published (thankfully, this has never been a problem!).
A: The best way to reach me is by email! You can send me an email through my contact form here.
