Advertising & Blog Policy

In Summary
Disclosure: The Homey Owl is a not-for-profit blog (though this is subject to change at any time, and will be updated at that time.) The Homey Owl is open to offers regarding paid sponsorship and advertising opportunities, and will use their discretion regarding acceptance based on whether or not the opportunity fits with their reader-base. However, the Homey Owl is open to providing honest product reviews for any interested party free of charge, provided that they be provided with a version of the product to both keep and review. In these situations, gifted and sponsored items will be noted within the post content with a "c/o" (courtesy of) or "provided by." All opinions expressed on this blog are our own and should by no means be considered definitive.

If you are interested in partnering with The Homey Owl, please use our contact form to reach us. Please provide a link to your site, and explanation of what you are looking for from the partnership and an email where we can easily reach you. Thank you!

The Detailed Version
The Homey Owl Blog Policy: This is a personal blog written and edited by Stacia Baskin. The views and opinions expressed here are purely that of the blog owner. For any questions regarding this blog or something posted here, please contact the owner, Stacia Baskin.

We (Stacia Baskin) will only endorse the products or services that we believe in, based on our expertise, experience, and opinions, that we think are worthy of such endorsement, many times without any compensation from the manufacturer of the product or service. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.

This blog is open to accepting forms of sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation. The compensation received will never influence the content, topics, or posts made in this blog. We will always disclose if we are being compensated for a post. No matter what the case, all opinions and views expressed in a post will be 100% our own. Again, we will not promote products we do not personally support.

This blog abides by word of mouth marketing standards. We believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. If a post does not identify itself as sponsored, then we are simply promoting the products because we like them, and are without the expectation of compensation.

Intellectual Property Rights: A lot of hard work and sacrifice go in to creating the tutorials and other things shared on this blog.
