How do you know if I have been gifted something?
If I have been invited to a event for review purposes it is generally disclosed within the post (most likely at the end of the review).
From January 5th 2014 onwards, this will also be shown by the + symbol in the title of the post. The same applies for any items gifted for coverage.
How do you know if I have been paid for content?
Sponsored posts are indicated with (SP) in the title of the post and a disclaimer is noted at the bottom of each post to indicate the level of collaboration with the brand in question. From 2016 there will be no paid for content on this blog.
How do you know if I’m writing about one of my business clients?
If coverage of an event, place or product ties in with my client work and there may be a perceived conflict of interest, a note will be in the opening paragraph or at the bottom of the post.
Images are my own unless otherwise stated and both my photography and writing should not be published elsewhere without prior permission.
If I have used one of your images and you would like it removed, contact me here.
Information for PR companies & brands:
If you have a product that you feel is relevant to Cheery Little Thing, do get in touch via email.
I do not tend to attend blogger events and as of 2016 I no longer discuss or accept paid for content.
Please note that if you fail to supply images for events where photography isn’t allowed, this can affect the turnaround of posts (I ALWAYS have an image). If a gift isn’t suitable or you provide a voucher for a product that I find isn’t stocked near me, I will be in touch by email to provide honest advice.
It is worth noting that on the whole, I do not create posts related to campaigns and competitions dictated to me by brands. I am very keen to ensure that all content is authentic and my readers understand why I am talking about something. Real partnerships are always preferred and I hope you agree that in the long term, they’re actually far more beneficial.
