New FTC Rulings For US-Based Bloggers

As most of you may know, the US Federal Trade Commission recently ruled that, as of December 1 2009, bloggers who receive free products will have to disclose if they do so or not. I suppose this is to tell consumers to be wary of people who review free stuff very positively. More on the US FTC ruling here, at A Touch Of Blusher.

Anyways, the point of this post is for me to tell you all that I will always review a product based on it's own merit and not positively just because I got it for free. What would be the point in blogging, if no one took you seriously then? I don't want to become like most of those "Youtube gurus'' who have thousands of followers who think that those gurus have the Midas touch and everything they review is gold. No.

Some things will be bad. Some things will make me chuck them after first use. Some things will become my Holy Grail. Some things are just average.

And I promise to remain true.
