Top Mommy Blogs – I’m a Member

Posted on

When I started this blog in August, I looked around for some mommy blog directories where I can meet other mommy bloggers. I found, but I could not join right away. They have really high standards to join. For starters, one must have been blogging for at least three months before applying. Then, there are some other criteria.

Top Mommy Blogs Member! Click To Vote For Me Daily

I put it on my calendar to apply in November and started blogging my heart out about my passion, which is homeschooling my children. I almost forgot about joining this site, but my calendar reminded me about it.

So when my blog turned three months old, I applied to and got accepted. I immediately put their badge on the right side menu for all to see and vote for me.

I have not said much about them because I did not want anybody to get confused between the voting going on at Homeschool Blog Awards and this voting, at Top Mommy Blogs.

The Top Mommy Blogs website is ranked highly for its high quality content, as well as for the many incoming links from all these amazing, quality blogs. If you are into coupons, head over there right now because they have a special section for coupon blogs. Many other blogging categories are represented, from adoption stories to working moms, to spiritual and religious, to travel and activities.

And yes, there is the homeschooling category, where I am ranked #3 at the moment. Those rankings vary based on the number of people that vote for me from my blog’s front page – see badge on the right-hand menu. Every time you visit my site, you can click on that badge to be taken to their site – which gives me a vote.

What do I win? Recognition in the homeschooling category and overall. In other words, higher rankings on their page. Which means more traffic – more opportunities for me to help a homeschooling mom who is perhaps going through what I am going through. If I don’t get clicks, over time, they take me off their site. Not good. So please click for me on the badge below, above, or from the right hand menu. Whenever you remember, whenever you have an extra second. Thank you!

Homeschooling Blog Disclosure

Posted on

A homeschooling blog is a homeschooling blog. Or is it? Back in 2009, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) decided it was time for bloggers to disclose if they received a freebie from a company in exchange for a  review on their blog.

Since mommy bloggers could be held liable for product reviews, I decided to look into the FTC regulations on bloggers. The result is a new tab on my website, Disclosure.

Homeschooling is a journey I never thought I would embark upon. Once I gave in to God and accepted the call to homeschool my children, I felt the need for an outlet to express not just the information I accumulate as I teach my children, but also the feelings behind our day-to-day life.

It’s not about money, but, when it has to be, I need to do things according to Caesar because, after all, we ought to give the FTC what belongs unto the FTC.

So here’s my disclosure policy…

Homeschooling Blog Disclosure

This is my blog and I write my personal opinion about different products and services inside and outside the beautiful world of homeschooling. So far, I have not been paid to provide reviews. I am open to starting such business relationships though. When I do, I will disclose it.

I have several affiliate links on this blog. If you purchase through my affiliate banners and links, I receive a small commission. Besides getting the same great product at the same great price you would get on a non-affiliate website, if you buy through my links, you also get the satisfaction of helping a homeschooling family. Thank you!
