Apparently some bloggers get cash, swag, freebies and treats from companies in return for writing favorable blogs about the companies and/or their products. Our tax dollars paid some folks in Washington D.C. to overthink this situation. (FTC LINK) That’s not how this blog rolls. I work for a living and nothing posted in this blog sends anything of value my way. If Rex Tillerson sends me a bale of unmarked bills, I'll disclose that. If Sarah Palin sends me a free copy of her book - I'll send it back assuming I don't burst in to flames upon touching it.
