The Federal Trade Commission requires that bloggers disclose any relationship they have with a product manufacturer, retailer, or service provider when they write about a product or service.
First and foremost, The GuitarBUZZ is a labor of love — my love for guitars. I invest considerable amounts of my own personal time to write for The GuitarBUZZ. No one pays me a salary to do so.
I am never paid to write a review of a product, service, artist or other web site. Occasionally I am sent a complimentary “review copy” of a CD or DVD to listen to and review. Usually I am allowed to keep the CD or DVD as a result. I have also reviewed many CDs and DVDs on this site that I purchased with my own dollars.
The main way in which I do manage to make money (or at least offset some of the costs of hosting and development) on this blog site is by providing relevant advertisement links. If you click one of these links and are directed to another web site and then purchase something, I will make a commission. These links only appear at the end of selected posts for products reviewed or referenced in a blog post. Most of these links will be to Amazon.com and/or their affiliate partners.
The site also includes Google Adsense advertising links. If you click on any of those links I make a small commission. Read more on Google’s Adsense program by CLICKING HERE.
