Disclosure Regarding Promotions and Advertisements On This Blog

To my readers,

In response to the new guidelines for bloggers issued by the FTC, here is the Dude, Where Am I? Disclosure Report:

Companies Who Advertise Here-
The Catholic Company and Palladium Wedding Rings both offered me products to endorse their companies. I accept free books in exchange for reviews from The Catholic Company. If I purchase jewelery from Palladium Wedding Rings, I will have a discount in exchange for listing them. Parts Select is a paid advertisement link. Anyone interested in advertising on Dude, Where Am I? can contact me by email. I am happy to assist businesses that are an appropriate fit here.

Give Aways on Dude, Where Am I?-
I did not receive any HairZings myself for doing a give away; the product was mailed directly from the distributor to the winners.

Magazines Endorsed Here-
I have heavily promoted the publications Mom Writer's Literary Magazine a.k.a Mamazina Magazine and The Motherhood Muse on this blog. I have contributed writing to these publications.

Miscelaneous Ridiculous Information-
If the snack involves microwaved cheese and nachos, I double dip. Taco Bell does not pay me to double dip and say "Mmmm" in front of others.

i used to have a sexy lingera ad .....my boy tony sets up sidebars for my blog and in exchange get any money from ads, i ran a religious blog on morality and there as an ad a girl in bikiny right by my blog on being modest....i told tony about it and the ad disapperaed but i can't endorse the stuff that appers on my posts

Putz said...

it just has to be part of my weirness as a putz, and the more i think about it, what could be more pautzy than a underwear ad by a modesty article, but lucy wrote me back with a complain, and once i had an icon of a robot pking another robot in the eye, and the comment"no eye poking on this blog and a man made me take it off because it was a gang related icon....blog is so interestin, and then tony my son, and my wife, and you and bob wit all getting on my case and not understanding my religious jokes

Hi Mr. Putz,
When we do not really know the person whose writing we are reading, it is easy to misunderstand them. As far as the ads go, you are right, people associate what is advertised on your blog with who you are as a person, and you can be attacked. I already said I understand your joke now, but it involved blowing up the Vatican, so I'm sure you understand my adverse reaction. Cut me some slack, it took me too weeks to figure out the Madame Bovary-Ovary joke.

Putz said...

no, loren the religious joke you do not understand is much more recent than the bomb/vatican joke, much more recent and disturbing....you went ummmm on brother packer's jokes, i don't think you understood them any better than bob wit does....and i made that ovary joke lat a long time by confusing you with woman's part and then miss spelling orgon for you

Brother Packer...doesn't he play pro football? Now it's your turn to get mad at me!

I wish not agree on it. I regard as warm-hearted post. Particularly the title-deed attracted me to be familiar with the intact story.

Hello. And Bye.

Dear Internet Traveler,

Welcome to my writer's blog, started about six years ago for fun. Over time, the writing I have posted has ranged from personal reflection, to Long Island history research, to tall tales for my own amusement, to feature articles for local newspapers. As you can see from topics listed here, I travel in many mental directions in regard to interests. Click on the tabs and labels to explore my strange mind which senses that you may be having a criss-cross day. If so, perhaps this blog will distract you. However, please note that if you tell me my blog is beautiful just to get me to advertise rhinoplasty surgery and cheap drugs from Canada in your comment, I will ask the gods to give you a tail that cannot be concealed.

Fondly,

Loren Christie
