I love comments! Comments are an excellent way to meet new friends and build community, which I believe is the heart of any good blog. I don’t, however, love comments that are mean, hurtful, condescending or offensive.
I hold first-time comments for mediation prior to posting publicly. If I find your comment to be offensive in any way [and at my own discretion] it will not be approved. Once I have approved your first comment, future comments from you will not be held for moderation prior to posting. Even so, I retain the right to remove a comment at any time if it does not adhere to this commenting policy.
This does not mean that I filter out comments that are in conflict with my own views. I value free speech and welcome folks from all walks of life. Just be nice about it!

In 2009 the Federal Trade Commission [FTC] updated guidelines concerning the use of endorsements and testimonials in advertising on blogs and other online outlets. I support this law because it holds writers accountable and offers the public a way to measure the integrity of a review.
ERINLUDWIG.COM is my business and therefore a source of income for my household. As such, I feel it’s important to provide you with the following information:
- All views are 100% my own. I will never compromise my values in pursuit of money so you can trust that every recommendation or review is based on personal experience. Not every product/service/business I write about results in a positive review. If I think you will benefit from knowing about a product/service/business to avoid, I’ll share that too!
- Some posts contain affiliate links. Posts containing affiliate links include a brief statement at the top or the bottom of the post.
- ERINLUDWIG.COM is partially monetized through the use of third-party ads. These ads may be placed above the blog header, in sidebars, or above the footer.
- I currently do not write sponsored posts. If at any time my position on this changes, this disclosure policy will be updated accordingly.
