This blog is not primarily financially driven.  I put it up in 2012 to build a community for professionals, and to assist teachers, schools and districts with the tools necessary to develop and implement C.T.E programs and curriculum in Health Occupations.

That said, beginning December 1, 2009, the FTC requires bloggers to provide disclosures whenever there could be hidden interests or unspoken biases related to recommendations.

First: I am an education consultant and teacher.  Plus I have a full-time job as a C.T.E instructor and Choice Program Coordinator.

Second: Every website or person I recommend in my Blogroll was/is/are helpful to my professional development and continued learning and do not contribute financially to me in any way .

Third: Per the FTC rules, if I interview someone and they grab the bill for lunch, I would need to specify this. Ditto if I use an Amazon link that gets me 8 cents instead of an Amazon link that gets me 0 cents. If someone gives me a comfy t-shirt with a logo and I wear it in a photo, same deal. Disclaimers all over the place.

This would be tedious for me and a continual eye sore for readers. But rules is rules.
