As readership of Merry and Bright grows, I'm getting the opportunity to review promotional materials submitted to me. I'm happy to share my opinions of these materials with my readers. To cover the bases regarding disclosure, here is my statement regarding reviews and materials received:
OFFICIAL STATEMENT OF FACTS:
1.) I swear or affirm all of the following statements are true.
2.) The albums or CDs I have reviewed at this blog prior to November 2011 have been my own purchases, gifts given to me by friends or family, or have been purchased and downloaded online.
3) Unless otherwise noted, all reviews posted at this blog after November 1, 2011 will be music from my own purchases, gifts by friends or family, or legally downloaded music files.
4) CDs received as promotional material and reviewed here will be clearly indicated as being unsolicited promotional material.
5) No compensation will be accepted for reviews. Any compensation, gifts, or other material beyond the CDs and related promotional material will not be accepted. Any submissions containing currency, gifts, or other non-promotional material will be returned to the sender.
6) Opinions expressed in reviews are my own. Opinions expressed in comments are the opinions of the commenters only. Profane, distasteful, or other comments not meeting the standards of the blogger will not be tolerated and will be removed.
Thanks for your patience (and thanks to Captain OT for providing a disclosure statement model).
And thanks to Joe for catching a critical omission of a "not".
