As for reviews, just because someone sends me something to review, it doesn’t mean I’m going to post a glowing tribute to it. Most reviews on my blog do end up being positive only because I am choosy about what I agree to receive. I’m not going to say, “Oh YES! send me your super duper liver on a stick!“, because I really really really hate liver. I will however say, “Yes! Please do send me all of your chocolate or the latest tween gadget!“, as these are things that my family already enjoys and are more likely to have a better experience with.

Hey, don’t steal my stuff! All the pictures on my blog, ahensnest.com, are MINE, or I’ve gotten permission to use them, or I’ve spent hours scouring free stock image sites to find the perfect photo. I don’t want to find my childrens’ pictures on some foreign ad company’s site like some people I know. Let me quote my Jazzercise instructor here: “NO TOUCHEEEE!”. Thank you. This also applies to the WORDS on my site. Those are mine too! I’m a perfectionist, I spend way too much time trying to write an informative and truthful (and it takes time to write all these run on sentences and grammatically incorrect uses of commas!) posts for someone to come along and swipe it, so don’t!
