I learned about disclosure statements in blogs this week. I had heard about disclosure statements for blogs that recommend products for sale. In fact my sister-in-law includes disclosure statements when she recommends certain products in her personal blog. However, I did not realize there were actual recommendations from the FTC about blog disclosures. I also did not consider a general disclosure statement for a blog, especially for an academic, non-profit blog. I welcomed the opportunity to add a disclosure statement page to my professional blog, TechieLibrarian.
