Mom Jeans & Dad Jokes • Disclosure Policy
Mom Jeans & Dad Jokes ("MJ&DJ") is written and produced by Indiana and Chris Adams as a personal lifestyle blog and podcast ("blogcast") that is suitable for all ages. That means subversive content is not allowed. Because this is a for profit blogcast, relevant affiliate links are used in posts and we do accept compensation from selected advertisements, partnerships, featured posts, and giveaways. Such posts will have an appropriate disclaimer. Other editorial content is not compensated unless stated otherwise. Items we receive free of charge are clearly marked with a "c/o" (courtesy of) within each written post or verbally on the podcast. Courtesy items are accepted only if they fit within our style, shopping, and own family budget.
Partnerships & Compensation
Partnership agreements are only made with companies and individuals that are of interest to both our family and MJ&DJ readers and / or listeners. We do not accept cash payment for reviews or non-sponsored posts, nor do we allow written, unsolicited guests posts that are of promotional nature. This includes promoting fundraising campaigns and press releases as editorial content.
We do accept a limited number of sponsored post opportunities each quarter. Sponsored posts and podcasts are clearly marked as such. All sponsored content is written by Chris or Indiana so that the voice of the blogcast is not compromised. We only work with brands or feature products that fit into our current lifestyle. Any product received as part of the sponsored post opportunity will be marked with a c/o (courtesy of) [brand outgoing link], which may or may not be an affiliate link providing commission.
We do reviews on a case by case basis. To make sure review items fit into our own budget and aesthetic and to ensure that it will be a good fit for our readership and / or listeners, all products for review must be pre-approved. Sending an item does not guarantee coverage and reviews are done in complete transparency, meaning we must be given the freedom to style or use the item how we'd like and give an honest opinion of said product. All products sent will have a “c/o [your company link]” next to it, indicating it was a courtesy item. If you or your company would like to send any products for review, please contact us for consideration.
Giveaways & Contests
Giveaways are reserved for official MJ&DJ partners in conjunction with sponsored posts and are done on an extremely limited case by case basis. In order to assure the MJ&DJ audience that the quality of our content is not determined by payment, we can only do giveaways on products that we can vouch for (usually by previous review or items that we own and use ourselves). Email addresses are only used to contact the winner and are expunged after the giveaway drawing. We will not sell or give this information to giveaway partners, nor do we ever make it a requirement to join mailing lists (yours or ours) or follow social media links (yours or ours) for entry. If the contest has an Instagram component, we respectfully decline all opportunities to be a part of "loop giveaways" of three or more accounts. Note: Prizes must have a retail value of $50 or more. The giveaway sponsor is responsible for providing and shipping the prize to the designated winner.
MJ&DJ does not participate in paid link exchanges. All links and show content are chosen for the benefit of the MJ&DJ audience and featured links change from time to time.
MJ&DJ does contain advertising and affiliate marketing links, meaning we may get a small commission on sales of products that are linked within posts. If you follow a hyperlink and make a purchase from an affiliate of MJ&DJ, that means we may make a commission from that purchase. However, please know that the content of MJ&DJ is not influenced by advertisers or an affiliate partnership. We only link products and similar items that we discuss on the show or currently use or recommend. Content is written first and relevant affiliate links are added last. All linked and featured items fit into our budget and lifestyle.
We do not sell or release any contact information given to or input into MJ&DJ. Please see more copyright and privacy info below.
