Ethical disclosure is ridiculously easy — learn how

We’re required to disclose any form of compensation when writing a blog post, which has led to all sorts of stresses, excuses, legal discussion, and bloviating by bloggers.

It’s really easy to do proper, simple, legally-compliant disclosure:

Just write a sentence at the start of each post explaining your relationship to whomever is compensating you or giving you free stuff.
