Do you have any articles or advice you can share in relation to the FTC rules, guidelines for Book Bloggers?
I receive free books at times, paperbacks, hardbacks and ebooks. I receive these in exchange for a review or guest post. I do not receive cash and I do not have any amazon affiliation etc on my blog.
Is it important to state the source I received the book from and say it is in exchange for a review?
FTC sounds far to complicated. I became a book blogger because I love to read and love to share my opinion of books and authors. I have no interest in becoming a 'professional reviewer', do I want my reviews to be good, yes, and strive to improve them all the time.
I do not have a review policy, why, because I want to be able to say yes, no, maybe or not even respond at times if I don't want to.
Am I putting myself or the authors/publishers at risk in anyway by not stating anything on my blog or in each post?
Any feedback would be helpful, thanks in advance.
