Let’s Talk Money….
My Life From Home sometimes accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, links, paid insertions, buttons, topics, or other advertising in exchange for compensation in the form of link swaps, cash, discounts and/or product samples.
As a blog author, I am sometimes compensated as mentioned above to provide my opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics, or to show how I utilize certain sponsor products in my projects. Even though I sometimes receive compensation for my posts or advertisements, I always give my honest opinion, finding, belief, or experience on those topics or products. In addition, I carefully screen all advertising or sponsored opportunities to be sure that they will be of interest to my readers, and I select only products or services that I would normally choose to use myself. I will always give you my honest opinion and will not endorse a product or service that I do not believe in.
This blog abides by word of mouth marketing standards. I believe in honesty of relationship, opinion, and identity. The compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog. That content, advertising space or post will be clearly identified as paid or sponsored content.
Some links are affiliate links, meaning I get paid per click or when a reader directed by my site purchases a sponsor product, but the purchase price is not impacted for you, the reader/purchaser. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.
When you’re trying my tutorials, please know that my tutorials are the methods, steps and personal experiences that have worked for me (and featured bloggers). We are not professionals, but enthusiastic amateurs. Proceed with tutorials at your own risk and always test before implementing. Please be responsible by wearing proper safety equipment and techniques when using or operating any products or seeking professional assistance when required and needed. Not everyone will have the same results.
This blog does not contain any content which might present a conflict of interest.
Link parties and giveaways- Your rights….

All rights and links will be provided and linked back to the original source. Any involvement in giveaways is the responsibility of the giveaway organizer or brand. If there are issues or questions about a link party or giveaway, please contact the specific organizer directly. If a cash giveaway is not fulfilled appropriately, neither Amy Dowling nor My Life From Home will be held liable for lack of compensation of cash prize.
Any and all personal information presented in giveaways, link parties, or comments will be kept private. Your email will not be sold to any third party. I will not release any information other then your website and only if provided by yourself when linking up, when commenting (which is made public), or by name if you are a winner of a giveaway.

All about the little ones……
All images of any minor children under the age of 18 on My Life From Home will not be shared in any way without approval by Amy Dowling representing My Life From Home. Anyone violating this regulation will be contacted and asked to remove the image. If a request to remove an image is not followed immediately, the violation will be handled appropriately and quickly through our attorney or appropriate legal authorities. I adore sharing my life, home and family with you all; however, I need to protect my children from anyone who may not have the best of intentions. Unfortunately, this is necessary. I am more than happy to allow sharing of images for specific articles if an opportunity comes up. But, remember that, sharing, uploading, or circulating images of persons under the age of 18 without consent is illegal.
All minors featured are my children and only Amy Dowling and Gregory Dowling are authorized to provide written consent for use of their images. Any circulation of images of our children on the internet or in art, photography, parenting articles, GIF’s, for-profit-means, personal use, social media, or blogs is prohibited. Amy Dowling may provide any images of her children for articles written and sourced to other websites for freelancing endeavors. In these instances, My Life From Home and Amy Dowling still own the image rights and those images will only be allowed circulation pertaining to specific outsourced articles.
I treasure my readers and my ultimate goal is to make sure that My Life From Home is a blog that gives you inspiration and information!
Comments, keep it nice…..
My Life From Home and Amy Dowling reserve all right to monitor, delete, alter, or remove comments at any time. Each comment is required to go through an approval process before being published to ensure that everyone is being kind, supportive, and not using excessive profanity. I am ok with differences of opinion; however, there will be no personal attacks permitted against My Life From Home or anyone affiliated with the blog, guest contributors, or fellow commentators. Comments will be removed immediately if there is an observed issue.
