What’s up Blogging? is a personal website written and edited by Katelyn Fagan.
All content is my own unless specified and is copyrighted and cannot be used anywhere else without written permission. Please contact me – firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in sharing something on my site. Many of the photos taken on this site are also original works of Katelyn Fagan (or her family) and cannot be reused without proper credit and links. Any photos that are not Katelyn’s have been used according to any and all copyright and fair use laws.
This blog also accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions, free products, and other forms of compensation, but will always disclose the type of relationships and product received in the posts.
A sponsored post is a post written on behalf of a company or individual. They often promote a new product or raise product awareness. I try hard to be selective in my acceptance of sponsored posts and content, only working with companies and/or products that I would use myself and/or that I believe my readership will find valuable. Although sponsored posts usually provide me with money and/or free products in exchange for my promotional post and other social media shares, I share my honest opinions, findings, beliefs, and experiences 100% of the time. However, the views on What’s up Blogging? are purely Katelyn’s. Any product claim, statistic, quote, or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider, or party in question.
What’s up Blogging? also uses affiliate links. When you click on an affiliate link–which I disclose in posts in order to be transparent with my readers–and make a purchase, I make a small commission from the sale and/or click or signup. However, it costs the clicker, reader, purchaser, nothing. I thank all who use my links for supporting me, my blog, and my family’s income.
