As you may not be aware, the FTC recently passed a ruling that all blogs must disclose their financial relationships.

We all know that MOST bloggers make some sort of money. We may write because we’re passionate. However our time and the tools we use have to get paid one way or another.

So, bloggers use affiliate links for products that they would write about anyways. Bloggers get paid a commission if you buy these products. Bloggers use Google Adsense and other ad providers to place ads on our site. When people click on these ads, they make small amounts of money. This is simply how Bloggers can afford to share their time and insights with you. So, to be in compliance with the FTC ruling, here is my disclosure.

This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me. For questions about this blog, please contact me – Julie Calcao – at

This blog accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation.

The compensation received will never influence the content, topics or posts made in this blog. All advertising is in the form of advertisements generated by a third party ad network. Those advertisements will be identified as paid advertisements.

The owner of this blog is not compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the blog owners.

Affiliate Links / Sponsorship

Some posts (not all do) contain affiliate links. This means that when you purchase a product through an affiliate link it has no impact on your cost, but Naturally Mindful receives a [much needed] small commission that helps offset the cost of running this website and justifies the time I spend away from my family while I am researching, composing, and editing the posts found here and

Amazon Affiliate Links

This is pretty much the as above, except Amazon requires its affiliate to have a disclaimer for Amazon only, and they require me that I tell you the following:
