Legal Stuff

As with any website, there are some things I want to square away with you with regard to copyright, affiliate links, and spam policies in addition to the cookie notice which should pop up when you access BloggingOnward.com, SpookyWordsPress.com or FoxEmm.com.

Affiliate Disclosure: I am grateful to be of service to bloggers, writers, and other freelancers. Unless you are purchasing a book or other paid content from me, I will be providing you with useful content free of charge. In order to do this, I will place referral links in place of general links when I can, so that if you purchase the products/services I recommend I will receive a small referral commission. I will not post links to items I do not use, or believe will not assist you in your creative and professional journey. Your support in purchasing through these links enables me to keep my rates low, support my writing, and help empower and encourage more people worldwide to blog, write, and provide their own services with less worry and less hassle. Thank you!
