Even though the owner(s) of these social media channels receive compensation for our posts or advertisements, we always give our honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products.

Bubbles and Chaos sometimes receives items/products/services from Brands/PR Firms/Small Businesses (ooh, freebies!).
Anytime the product being written about has been sent to us for review consideration, we’ll be sure to let you know up-front at the beginning of the post.
The opinions provided are 100% ours and are presented as objectively as possible.
Bubbles and Chaos does not currently participate in any affiliate advertising programs.
Affiliate link programs allow sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to their affiliates.
If Bubbles and Chaos should hook up with an affiliate link program or two in the future to make that sweet, sweet cheddar, this disclosure page will reflect any such agreements and affiliations accordingly, and an affiliate link disclosure statement will be placed at the beginning of posts containing affiliate links. It might look something like this:
“This post contains affiliate links. I may make a small commission if you choose to purchase the item(s) through my link.”
Bubbles and Chaos participates in the following Brand Ambassador programs:
Brand Ambassador & Station Host
Bubbles and Chaos, as of June 3rd, 2019, is now a Brand Ambassador and radio host for Stationhead, Inc.. What this means is that we may receive financial compensation if you choose to listen to our radio programming via the Stationhead application (currently available only through the App Store via iOS devices). We do not currently have any arrangements for financial compensation in exchange for advertising for/mentioning Stationhead in either written or verbal formats.
Bubbles and Chaos will update our disclosure page accordingly, as well as label any ‘ship at the beginning of any post mentioning products/services/companies with whom we have an Ambassadorship relationship/agreement. Regardless of the relationship Bubbles and Chaos may have with said company, all opinions remain 100% our own.
Bubbles and Chaos is now entertaining contractual agreements for sponsored posts.
Bubbles and Chaos sometimes writes sponsored posts (meaning that a company/brand/entity has paid to ensure a product/service appears on our site), and such agreements will be disclosed at the beginning of the sponsored post, stating something to the effect of:
“This post has been sponsored/brought to you by [Insert Sponsor Here]. Bubbles and Chaos has been compensated for this post. All opinions and statements are 100% our own.”
Bubbles and Chaos does not yet receive any financial compensation in exchange for writing sponsored articles, for hosting advertising spots, or through affiliate links/agreements.
If/when it starts happening, we will update our disclosure page accordingly, as well as label and disclose compensation agreements up-front appropriately.
Bubbles and Chaos is currently accepting products, services, website shout-out requests, etc. from brands, PR reps, and small businesses for review.
Products/services submitted for review are “For Consideration” only. No guarantees of review, either positive or negative, will be made. We may choose not to review something, especially if we feel it doesn’t align with our branding, audience interest, or meet our standards/expectations.
All reviews will always be 100% honest and of our own opinion(s). Reviews are not subject to pre-approval by PR Representatives or brands (that’s just unethical). Brands or PR Representatives with pre-approval guidelines and/or provided written content not authored by a Bubbles and Chaos staff member will not be accepted without compensating Bubbles and Chaos, and all pieces of such nature will be labeled & disclosed appropriately as an advertorial.
Again, we reserve the right to NOT review an item sent for review. If you send Bubbles and Chaos a product/service for review we will assume you have read this statement.
Bubbles and Chaos is now accepting Brand/PR-initiated reviews.
Depending upon the current volume of products/services we are sent for review consideration, our products/services review turn-around times will vary. Please note that any products sent to Bubbles and Chaos for any purposes will not be returned, regardless of review approval or rejection.

Bubbles and Chaos and its Author(s) comply fully with the latest FTC Guidelines regarding disclosures (see above).
All reviews will always be 100% honest and of our own opinion(s). Reviews are not subject to pre-approval by PR Representatives or brands. Brands/PR Representatives with pre-approval guidelines and/or provided written content not authored by a Bubbles and Chaos staff member will not be accepted without compensating Bubbles and Chaos, and all pieces of such nature will be labeled and disclosed appropriately as advertisements/sponsored posts. Sponsored posts and content containing affiliate links and/or brand ambassadorships will always remain ‘no follow’ if compensation is exchanged for said posts.
