Full Disclosure

The purpose of Grand Rapids Natural Living is to inspire and encourage others and we are happy to offer tips, insight, recipes and our own thoughts.

But running a website takes both time and money, and for that reason I’m perfectly ok with earning money from advertisers and affiliate programs when the opportunity arises. I use the space on my sidebar for advertising, links within posts may be affiliate links where Naturally Knocked Up, LLC will earn a percentage of the purchases you make. Deal links may also be referral links where Naturally Knocked Up, LLC earns small referral bonus’.

However……the trust I build with my readers is more important than money and I will never allow advertisers on the site that I wouldn’t use or purchase from myself. We also will not run paid (or sponsored) posts, where a company pays for the content of a specific post, unless it fits well within our normal topics.

What we will do is accept posts or series to be underwritten; meaning that a company will pay to be mentioned as the ‘underwriter’ of a post or series, but the topic will benefit you (the reader), content will not be persuaded, and all thoughts are ours.

Compensation will never influence content.

The views and beliefs stated here are the sole ownership of each individual author.

And now that we have all that legal mumbo jumbo out of the way, we hope you enjoy our site!!
