I read blogs as often as I have a free moment ( I seem to squeeze those moments from nowhere). I look at blogs as a tool of learning. I have noticed so many have a disclaimer. Sure it’s probably on the larger ones but I have aspirations of being that bigger blog one day, so I thought why not start preparing one.
While the disclaimers I’ve read seem to appear of a legal variety, I’m not into any legal understanding so my disclaimer at the moment reflects a simplistic understanding. This is what I have so far…
The views expressed here are of my personal opinion based on my personal experience only and are not meant to cause distress. By the way, this statement works well in outside of blog interactions when someone asks you for a comment on their new hair, dress, waist size …
The photos are mine too (but if they aren’t I’ll tell you) and they are in no way meant to offend. By mine, some technically may belong to my husband but I work on the motto of “What’s yours is mine and what’s mine is mine” (oh and to give credit where its due I believe that’s a quote by the ever active Anonymous.. but if I’m wrong send me a correct link so I can give credit.)
I don’t mind if you quote me, but link back to me so I can share in the fun of reading your content. And, a polite ‘follow ‘wouldn’t go astray.
Oh and I change my mind and opinions frequently. I am female after all. So, if I think it’s ok today to participate in a fad or whatever, tomorrow it may just be the worst thing I can think to do. Though I doubt I’ll ever change my mind on how great pink is as a colour , caramel slices being a fantastic treat and Hamilton Island being the best place in the world (all just my opinion of course!)
Oh and while I am a qualified and hard working full time teacher, my views on education are my opinions gained through years of teaching and in no way reflect the thoughts of my employer . I also may spout child rearing knowledge having raised two kids through to become adults who are caring, responsible (except for leaving their pets with me a bit too often)valuable community members but trust me …it’s all hindsight stuff (they screamed and tantrummed with the best of them!!)
What’s in your disclaimer? Should I actually have some legal jargon and if so any suggestions where to find it or what to include? Look forward to your help.
