Nope, not advertising here

Got a comment I feel I needed to address.

"Your blog posts are like Protein Advertisements now. What happened?" - Anonymous

Sad. Nope I am not advertising any products. I do occasional posts about products I use like this, that's all it is. The last post is part of a series of posts I have been doing on supplements I researched and have started using to aid in my goals. I already did one on multivitamins, fish & flax seed oil & I have more more to go in the series so be warned:) In fact I even wrote a post mocking supplement advertisers.

I don't support any brand or product specifically. If I find a brand or something I think stands above the rest and want to get some $ for endorsing it in the future, I might. If I ever do accept $, free product or compensation though, I would would make it clear that I did. I hope pics that show specific products I use don't throw people off the reason why I do this here.

Nothin' but love. Keepin' it real as best I know how.

  1. I am enjoying your posts on supplements, as I take several myself. Forget anonymous commenters. It's your blog, post whatever's on your mind.

  2. Thanks for the advice. A good part of me wants to disable anonymous posts not because I can't handle feedback but I think if you want to give constructive criticism you should own up to it. No changes for now.

  3. It can be hard to take that kind of feeback, but I think you handled it well.

    Look...you've got people reading. That is amazing. Perhaps the feedback will make you more aware that your audience members follow you for a reason. One person is not fond of posts of a certain genre. Now you know. Do with that info what you will. It's all part of the learnin and the growin and the figurin it all out!

    I enjoy your blog, BTW! Peace, out.

  4. Ah Mike, the world is full of folks who just have nothing better to do than give others a hard time. But it only works if you let it get to you. You are doing an amazing job in getting healthy and personally I like to read about supplements that others are trying. I mean how many containers of protein powder have you purchased that just taste like dirt - it would be nice to read reviews or experiences about the products before you get out there and buy them. I don't call it advertising, I call it helping others.

    Enjoy your Friday!!

  5. I don't think your advertising your talking about products you use that work for you, there's nothing wrong with that, I do it ALOT because if it can help me help others that's wonderful! I personally love when others talk about products because you know if they really work or not just not off what a commercial or a package tells you.
