Social media has its pros and cons and one of the things we have to be aware of is that things we say and do will stay on the interwebs forever. It is so easy to publish words, thoughts, and opinions and get them out into the world via all other sorts of networking sites. So we have to remember to BLOG WITH INTEGRITY. I took the pledge a while ago (I can’t remember how long ago) but thought it would be good to reiterate my values.
Therefore, I have updated my “About & Contact” page with information/disclosures regarding all blog content and book review policies. Why now? Even though I’m Canadian, this recent change to the USA’s Federal Trade Commission guidelines regarding bloggers got me thinking. This CNN article sums the changes up rather well.
