Advertising on LR and My.LR – No Control

Log onto, my social network which is controlled by Ning and sadly, I saw some advertisements by Google that made me want to write a reminder of my disclosure policy. Since I decided that this site will be a blog, I also know that chances are, people look up to this site for inspiration and debate my points. Ads are usually tossed in to help pay for expenses. However, I do have to let you know:

I only have control over the ads here on, not the social network for I have yet to pay for ad control. However, the disclosure policy is for both sites. OF course, I might have to fix this disclosure up:

This blog is a collaborative blog written by a group of individuals. This blog does not accept any form of advertising, sponsorship, or paid insertions. We write for our own purposes. However, we may be influenced by our background, occupation, religion, political affiliation or experience.

I do accept advertising, but not "paid insertions". This is going to have to be revised a bit because it seems to be conflicting the rest of the disclosure. Tell me if you feel I should clear this up. I’ll have to look into that language when I get a chance.

Anyway, this is a reminder to let you know that all the ads are third party ads and I have little control over what they display and, until I get control of the network, no control over the social network ads.

Be Sociable, Share!

    It seems to be in need of some revision, for clarification for the slow, just like everything else these days. It shouldn’t be too much different in the end since you’re just noting that ning runs it’s own Google ads, but you personally don’t accept any.
