Our blog is a personal blog written and edited by me – Allison Decker – and only me! I share what I find because I truly love Anna Maria Island.
However, at the same time, I do believe it is OK that I am compensated by affiliates for the time and effort I put forth in sharing information with you. I may be earning money from the hyperlink you click on to book and reserve services provided by others.
One thing that is important to note is that the money I am paid will never influence the content, topics, or posts I make. I do not allow guest posts where the party has paid me to share content. I don’t believe in those types of posts, so you will never find them here. I share content for affiliates I have a relationship with. I promote local businesses that I feel provide great service and experiences.
I am not compensated in any way to provide my opinions on products, services, websites, or any other topic. All opinions are 100% my own — and trust me – I’ve got an opinion!! Always keep in mind that I do republish content, as may be provided by a manufacturer/retailer directly or from their site, and any questions about such content, should be verified with them.
If there is a giveaway on my site, the review is my own and is never influenced in any way by anything I may have received. Oftentimes, I am provided with a product or service for review, and for my time and sharing my opinions, I am allowed to keep the product and/or have the experience for the purpose of review. This will be properly disclosed as I have nothing to hide.
I take great pride in ensuring that the content on this site is from a company I could recommend. If I don’t believe in the company or what they have to offer, I won’t share it. My readers are more important than compensation. I would never share a deal just to make a buck.
