This blog is a personal blog written and edited by Daniel Lee.

The owner of this blog may receive compensation to provide opinion on certain products, services, websites and various other topics. Even though the owner of this blog receives compensation for various posts or advertisements- honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products are always given. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the blogger’s own. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.

What is disclosure?

The act of making something obvious. Disclosing (divulging or explaining), the purpose and interests of a blogger in his/her published posts: written, audio or video.

Why is it important in blogging?

Because advertisers are offering bloggers payment or gifts to create content about specific products or services, the blogger’s interest in the product or service may be in part the financial gain. Whether the blogger would have included content in his/her blog about the product or service without gift or payment, the fact is the blogger is receiving payment for certain content.

Why disclose?

By disclosing the purpose of a blog, bloggers are letting readers know more about the information they’ll be reviewing. Bloggers retain the freedom to write original content, as well as select which advertisers they will represent in exchange for gifts or money.
