I am employed by Wiley, but this blog is solely my opinions.

Sometimes I give away Wiley books. I have not paid for them, but am permitted to give them away by my employer.
On occasion, I accept products, events and services for review. If I do, I will state that I have received said product, event or service for free. I will also write about things that I did not get for free and instead bought with my own money. If I don’t explicitly say so, assume no money landed in my hands for what has been written. If a post has been sponsored in any way, shape or form, it will clearly state that I have received compensation for my writing.

SPECIAL DISNEY DISCLOSURE: In 2011 and 2012 I attended the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration. For a conference fee, , I received 3 nights lodging, 7 day park tickets for me and my family, many meals and access to special events not made available to the public. Disney has not required me to blog about this event, but being a fan of the company I blog about them quite frequently. There is a Disney category on the blog, and if you follow that or the tag cloud, you will see how many times I blogged about things Disney before 3/2011 to know that I am a fan.
