I have blogged in the past about several products and services that I use or have tried, this includes research websites, genealogy programs, website builders, web hosts etc. If my understanding of the revised FTC regulations is correct, that would be an endorsement. If you think about it, even #follow Friday on Twitter is an endorsement!
I have only been compensated by one company, not for an endorsement, but for being a Beta tester. I have posted about this company in my blog, so now, do I have to go back and edit all of my posts that mention it with a disclaimer or explanation? This will be a lot of work for some bloggers who have been around for years.
Oh, well, I don't have to worry, FTC regulations don't apply here, but Canada is a follower, not a leader, so it's only a matter of time.
I think I'll put a disclaimer in future blogs, say something like;
"This post is only my opinion, I was not compensated for endorsing any person, website, product or service in any way. EJBradt".
Welcome to my family history blog. Finding more about my family's history is very rewarding as well as being interesting and educational.
I created this blog to share my thoughts, experiences, tips and resources in my search for my ancestors' history and maybe, help you in your research as well. I am particularly interested in the history of Upper Canada and the Loyalist period in history.
