Information and/or pictures from this site may only be used after written permission is obtained by emailing me – leslie at lambertslately dot com.
Generally, I allow other bloggers and publishers to use one image from my site if referencing my content, as long as a link to my homepage (https://www.lambertslately.com) and the specific post with the image are both linked. Reproduction of more than 1-2 sentences from a blog post is not allowed, but using a small snippet of a blog post is when referencing my content. I do appreciate emails to confirm this usage before publishing – when in doubt, contact me.
I am only responsible for comments made by myself, and cannot be held liable for comments on this blog by others.
I reserve the right to delete comments that, in my opinion, do not add benefit to the conversation about the post. This includes (but is not limited to) incorrect information, hate speech, comments attacking myself or a blog reader, self-promotion, or obscenities. Comments may be deleted at my discretion without notice.
Overall – just bring something to the table! Constructive criticism or suggestions are allowed and welcomed, bullying and harassment are not.
Affiliate Links and Sponsored Content
Occasionally, I will put up a review or a link to a product that I think is great! These links help me make money. These are called affiliate links. I might receive payment when you click the link or when you purchase an item from that website within a certain time frame.*
You aren't the one paying me anything extra for clicking this link! And I really don't like to put something on this blog that I don't believe in. Just because I'm receiving payment for sharing a link doesn't mean I'm automatically going to share it, and the fact that I'm getting an incentive doesn't influence what I say about something. You can trust what I say here, pinky promise! I never publish sponsored content solely for my financial gain – I love to share great finds with my readers, and I make it a priority to make sure these are great finds before the content is published.
Any reviews that are on my blog are completely my opinion…I wouldn't post them if they weren't. I do receive compensation (whether it is free product or payment) for reviews sometimes as well, but that doesn't mean I'm going to share something I don't personally believe in and love.
Just know that sometimes I might receive payment for you seeing or clicking on an item through my site – and I appreciate anything you use because of this blog! 🙂 I always try my best to mark posts that include affiliate links or sponsored content. If you see one that isn't noted and are wondering whether or not it is sponsored content, you're always welcome to email me to double check.
