Disclosure and Privacy Polices

My goal at GayIdle.com  is to follow God's call on my life to write. As I write I share those things that are both life-affirming and redeeming and are in line with a biblical worldview.
  • Writing is both my call and my passion. Therefore, I feel comfortable accepting compensation for my work. I accept advertising and participate in various affiliate programs which provide some income.
  • I am committed to promoting products that I personally use and can recommend without hesitation.
  • My character and integrity are an integral part of who I am as a writer.  Gaining (& keeping) the trust of my readers is at the core of what I do.
This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me, Gay Idle. This blog may accept forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation.
The compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog. That content, advertising space or post may not always be identified as paid or sponsored content.
The owner of this blog is compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. Even though I might receive compensation for my posts or advertisements, I always give my honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the bloggers’ own. That means they are mine. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.
This blog does not contain any content which might present a conflict of interest.
