Sponsored post guidelines

Sponsored post guidelines

A sponsored post is when a blogger receives payment to publish an article provided by the sponsor or written by the blogger, but includes at least one contextual link.  

If you want me to do a sponsored post it will include a disclosure and a no follow link. 

Travel to Recovery is open to offers of free accommodation, travel, and travel experiences, in return for promotion on my website.

If you send me a product or invite me on a trip, the understanding is that if I don’t like it, I won’t write about it. If I write about it, I like it. If I don’t like it I will contact with reasons why, as it is possible the problem could be rectified.

I am not interested in link exchanges, unless your site is of obvious relevance to my readers, in which case, I may charge you.

Trust and authenticity are important to me, I will not intentionally mislead my readers therefore I will only accept sponsored posts that will provide value to my readers and content.

Advertising Standards Agency (ASA) states

“Ads must be clearly identifiable as such. Put simply, a blogger who is given money to promote a product or service has to ensure readers are aware they’re being advertised to.”

I will not include a do follow link for sponsored posts so please don’t ask. I also will not remove the discloser to my readers so if you are looking for this then please look for another blogger.
