Policy

As a blogger many opportunities come my way, and I am grateful to each and every one of them. Here is a guideline to various policies I have:

Events:

  • I am mostly interested in events that centre around food and food related products, as well as lifestyle, hotel and travel.
  • I can and will attend functions where ever possible, as long as I receive sufficient notice.
  • I will only accept an invitation to evening and weekend functions if the invitation is extended to my husband Dave, who forms a large part of this blog.
  • My attendance at any event does not guarantee a blog post and if I do post, it will be at my own discretion using my own photographs.
  • As I do not get paid to blog, I cannot accept invitations to out of town events where the expenses incurred are for my own account. Please note that I live in Gordons Bay, 65km outside of Cape Town.

Paid work:

  • I am willing to work on a freelance basis for recipe writing / development
  • I am willing to work on a freelance basis to write blog posts
  • I am willing to work on a freelance basis to do proof reading and recipe testing

What you can send me and what to expect:

  • I will accept product for review but please check with me first before sending me any product as I will only review a product I would ordinarily purchase
  • I will accept recipe books for review but please be clear from the outset whether or not I can post the recipe/s I try out in order for me to do the review on my blog
  • Please note that a good review is not guaranteed
  • I will add a disclosure to all posts where necessary

Restaurant reviews:

  • I will come along and eat at your restaurant free of charge, but blogging it will be at my own discretion, as will be the tone
  • I would prefer that you do not tell your staff I am coming in to enjoy a meal on your account as I want to experience the meal as a paying customer would
  • If you invite me to eat at your restaurant please ensure that the booking and payment logistics are ironed out
  • I will add a disclosure to all posts where necessary

Venue reviews:

  • I will accept invitations to stay over and/or visit a venue free of charge, but blogging it will be at my own discretion, as will be the tone
  • I would prefer that you do not tell your staff I am coming to stay on your account as I want to experience the accommodation as a paying customer would
  • If you invite me to stay at your establishment please ensure that the booking and payment logistics are ironed out
  • I will add a disclosure to all posts where necessary

Advertising:

  • I will accept enquiries regarding advertising on my blog but acceptance will be at my sole discretion
  • The space available can be discussed
  • I will do link backs in posts as part of an advertising campaign or paid for blog post
  • I will add a disclosure to all posts where necessary

What I will do:

  • I will run competitions and give away’s on my blog at my discretion. You can ask me to do this on behalf of your company / client, and all reasonable requests will be dealt with.
  • I will add a disclosure to all posts where necessary
  • I will publish press releases at a nominal cost. A schedule of costs will be sent automatically to all requests sent to me via email.

What I don’t do:

  • I will not send out advance copy of any review I am asked to do

It is my policy to include a disclosure in every instance where I am paid or when I have been invited somewhere, or when I have been given something. Please keep this in mind when contacting me. Please also keep in mind that I am sucrose intolerant.

  1. Why would you post something you are PAID to do without a disclosure? This sounds like there are some dishonest companies out there.
