Disclosure Policy

This policy is valid from 19 August 2009

Spell Outloud is a personal blog written and edited by me, Maureen Spell. For questions about this blog, please contact

Occasionally companies approach me to review their products. I do not accept money or products in exchange for writing a positive review, disregarding my own opinion. I may however, keep the review product sent to me, but that does not guarantee a positive review. I am very selective about the companies I work with. I want my reviews to fit in with the themes of my blog, which are homeschooling, child-friendly products, digital scrapbooking and photography.

Right now I do not have any paid ads or sponsored posts, but I may in the future. If/when that occurs, they will be clearly identified as sponsors. I do however, place affiliate links in my posts when appropriate. All my affiliates are clearly listed on my side-bar.

This blog abides by word of mouth marketing standards. I believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely mine. I will only endorse products or services that I believe, based on my 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.

Just so you know, I am a creative team member of Designer Digitals ( That's why you see all their wonderful stuff on my blog.
