How to Write your Blog Disclosure Policy Page?

Today I receive a very nice comment from my friend Lawmacs of Blogging the Future on my latest personal blog post that titled The Famous Blogger Who Sold his furniture to pay his Taxes, he guided me to a very nice and helpful website that can help on writing our Famous Bloggers Disclosure Policy page, it’s called disclosure policy generator. I have visited the website and started to generate our Disclosure Policy page and published it already, and I added a link to it on the main top menu footer of our blog, so everybody can check it.

What I am looking for is to help me on editing of modifying our Disclosure Policy page to look better and then we will have a source that anyone can edit it to fit his own blog or website, and create a good Disclosure Policy page in case someone is looking for it.

The results can be like this (this is an example of Disclosure Policy page):

Famous Blogger blog is a collaborative blog written by a group of individuals. This blog accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation.

The compensation received will never influence the content, topics or posts made in this blog. Most of advertising is in the form of advertisements generated by a third party ad network. Those advertisements will be identified as paid advertisements.

The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the blog authors. If we claim or appear to be experts on a certain topic or product or service area, we will only endorse products or services that we believe, based on our expertise, are worthy of such endorsement. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.

    Privacy page and policy in a certain blog is very much important, I’ve done doing it and it works. It is the one that indicates the visitors to post base on your policy. You made a great article and all are actually great idea.

    Hi, thank you for this. I’m still figuring how to write one for my blog but I appreciate you writing about it.

    Thanks for the info here. I just created my disclosure policy for my blog, bayareamommy.com. Although I really want to make it more personal so I guess I’ll still be editing it so that it doesn’t come off as being too canned.

    I´m new at blogging, but loving it already. Just finished my disclosure policy, but I don´t know where in my blog should I put it…as a gadget mabye? Thanks in advance for your help!

    • Hesham June 27, 2011, 11:27 am

      Hi Carolina, try to create a new page and add your disclosure policy to it.

    This post really got me thinking about the business side of blogging. Sometimes we tend to forget that as soon as you start generating revenue out of your blogging efforts its already a business and should be treated as such. Thank you, this was eye opening experience.. Going to give it a try myself!

    Being non-US based I’m not sure the new FTC guidelines apply to me in the first place, but I put up a policy nonetheless, just to be sure, since on occasion I do paid posts, and since I do have a large US audience. I used disclosurepolicy.org to make my disclosure page, but I also use cmp.ly for marking my posts, since they have nice bagdes that fit the different situations where a disclosure would be needed.

    • Hesham December 12, 2009, 7:00 pm

      Thanks for sharing your way Jan, I think having policy page is important for your blog in general, and being a non-US based means that it depends on your county’s low! have a great day!

      Well, everybody says that we should do it, I still don’t feel the importance of it specially if almost all our income is watched already by the government, I mean I will pay taxes at the end of the year on all what’s in my bank account, maybe they are after the cash payments that is very hard to track them!

    This is extremely important and should not be taken for granted, especially now that the new FTC requirements has taken effect on December 1. If I may add something to this. If you are running AdSense on your blog, you must have a Privacy Policy (different from Disclosure policy) or you run the risk of getting banned by Google and all of their money making programs (including AdSense).

        You are welcome Hesham. I just saw it and you are now 100% compliant with Google and everything else:) Good job

    I used this website when I first need a disclosure for my blog sometime back, it certainly takes out a lot of the work in wording your policy correctly.

  • Dana December 4, 2009, 11:15 pm
