Disclosure Post

In light of our medical bills and at the encouragement of many of you, I have decided to try to put my writing skills to work.  At times, I might be writing a review of a certain product or website.  These will be sponsored by advertisers and I will be paid.  I am required by the company I am working with to write a disclosure post so that everyone knows.  If this bothers or concerns you, please know that I am in no way trying to make money off of our current situation.  I hope that by now you can feel the depths of our love for Abby through my writing and we would much rather be a boring, normal family! 

God has other plans for us though and I am actually hoping that taking this avenue gets our story out and that we can be an encouragement to even more people!  I am learning that God has given me the gift of writing and if I can use that to help ease our financial burden a bit, I figure it is worth a shot! 

I will not accept any advertisements that compromise my beliefs or make me feel uncomfortable.  If at any time I start to feel that I don't like the way my blog is heading, I will simply stop writing reviews!

I am trying this out, but am also open to other ways to keep a paid blog.  I've been researching and this looks like a good company to work with. If you have other thoughts or suggestions, please let me know!

Please contact me directly if you have questions or concerns.  :)

Hi Julie,
You should take a look at www.Tumblr.com. More flexible than Blogger and you can set it up to automatically push your blogs updates directly to your Facebook if you want. Nice audio and video options as well. Free:)
