Below you’ll find information about my working relationship with many of the brands, products and services I feature on Mar Gone Wild. Since it’s written in “super official” third-person (I was told that’s better when it comes to legal stuff) I thought I’d first take a moment to personally write this .  .  . 


When I started Mar Gone Wild I made myself and my little blog baby a promise: Mama Mar wouldn’t become a sellout.


More specifically, I didn’t want Mar Gone Wild to become one of those sites with a bunch of flashing ads everywhere. And I sure as heck didn’t want to feature a bunch of ads that contradicted what this space is suppose to be about. 


The truth is if I could have my cake and eat it too there would be no ads, no affiliate links and no sponsored posts on Mar Gone Wild. And I’d only ever feature stuff I innately wanted to blab about (but a girl’s gotta eat and feed her digital baby).


So I’ve done my best to compromise without compromising what I pride myself in most, which is keeping Mar Gone Wild real, honest and relevant to its visitors. 


Yes, you will find some content on here that’s been “paid” for. But I promise I’ve worked (and will continue to work) really hard to try and maintain a quality over quantity approach to Mar Gone Wild’s advertising and sponsorships.


A couple of the ways I’ve been able to accomplish this are by doing some of the work the old-fashioned way (like selling ad space directly as often as possible) and offering affiliates more bang for their buck (with high quality media production and niche brand marketing).


By putting in the extra work I’m able to be more selective when it comes to my affiliate relationships, which I ultimately hope translates in a better, more meaningful Mar Gone Wild experience for you.
