As of December 2009, the FTC requires all blogs generating any source of income to have an official disclosure policy. Here is mine.

In Human Speak

I make money through my blog in a few different ways. That being said, my opinions are fully mine and are not influenced by any money I may receive. If you have any questions, please email me at

Material Connection Disclosure

Unless otherwise expressly stated, you should assume that State of DIY has an affiliate relationship or other material connection to the providers of goods and services mentioned by, recommended, hyperlinked to, or otherwise referenced on State of DIY. In addition, you should assume that State of DIY may be compensated monetarily or non-monetarily when you visit, purchase goods or services from, or take any other action on a third-party website mentioned by, recommended, hyperlinked to, or otherwise referenced on State of DIY.

Your Privacy

I am not joking around when I say that I will never share your contact, or any other information with anyone else. Your information is private, and I value you and your privacy.

Release of Liability

Any recommendation I make on this site is my own personal opinion. Whether you choose to partake in it is your decision and I am not liable for any problems that arise including, but not limited to: not receiving products, receiving broken or damaged goods, technical difficulties with sites I link to, or any other financial loss that comes from a recommendation that I may make. Furthermore, any information you submit to any external site is at your own risk.

Amazon Disclosure

I am a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for me to earn fees by linking to and affiliated sites.

Comments Policy

I encourage you to leave comments and to ask questions and feel free to leave a link to your blog as well! If a comment uses foul language, contains spam or is just plain not helpful, I may choose to delete it.


I am not a professional. I am just a human sharing ideas and projects, big and small, hoping to inspire other humans to try something new.
