This policy is valid beginning September 2016 until the end of time.

This site is a personal blog written and edited by us, Toni Anderson and Liz Corson. For questions about this blog, please contact me (awkward@avoidbeinghated.com).

Everyone likes to get stuff for free, which includes us. On occasion, we will consider a product for review. If you want us to review your product email us for a detailed review policy and we can go from there. If you happened to obtain our mailing address through dubious measures please do not send us unsolicited products for review. There is nothing worse than coming home from a ten day vacation and finding a box of melted chocolate on the front porch.

From time to time we or a guest will also talk about products we have purchased, so for those reading this site, we will always tell you if the product was given to us or purchased.

Free products do not influence our opinions. Our goal for this site is to help you be nicer to others and avoid saying awkward things, if a guest mentions a product that fits those goals we will link to it in the show notes.

There are numerous links on our site to various stores. Assume these are affiliate links. This means if you click on them and purchase something we get a small percentage of the sale. We are not asking you to click on them, but if you want to help ten (between the two of us) beautiful children go to college feel free to click through.

We are not doctors, dentists, lawyers, accountants, nutritionists, microbiologists, home inspectors, financial advisers, or race car drivers. The views expressed on this site are ours or our guests opinions. We are opinionated women, so please remember these are our opinions.
