Terms of Use
Reading the information on this website edifymeblog.com is of your own free will and at your own risk. The site is intended to guide you to live a happy successful life...of course my definition of happiness and success; granted it may not be your definition of happiness and success. If you do not accept these terms and conditions, you should stop reading the information but I hope that you will find the information helpful and you'll continue to visit and read and learn and grow and succeed...and, of course, comment, share, and subscribe.

Copyright Policy
Please don’t use my stuff as your own because it’s not cool. Unless otherwise noted, the written material is the owned and legal works of me, Jackie at edifymeblog.com and may not be used, reprinted, modified or published without the author's written consent.
Feel free to email me at info@edifymeblog.com if you'd like permission to use any of the gems you find quotable.

Privacy Statement
Any personal information provided to me will be kept private. You will not be sent any delicious meat in a can (spam) or bombarded with irrelevant emails…I hate that so I know how it feels and won’t do it. Unfortunately I am not responsible for the practices of readers that leave comments or my advertisers. I would never sell or give out your information to my gardener, family, friends or other companies.

Reserve Rights
I, Jackie of edifymeblog.com reserve the right to: change up the format or scope of this blog (in case I get bored), shut it down (in case I die), sell it (and retire), or change the terms of use, at my own discretion. I reserve the right to delete any mean and nasty comments that offer no value to the intelligent conversation amongst folks who truly want to contribute to everyone’s growth, happiness, and success. I reserve the right to change the materials as my experiences change and sometimes the information needs to be modified based on my ever-changing epiphanies. I reserve the right to remove the sugar coating from certain topics as I tend to call it like I see it and sometimes that may leave an unpleasant taste in your mouth. Hopefully, once you step back and look at it plainly (no emotion), you will see its true value…that is my hope anyway.

Hold Harmless
All of the information provided on edifymeblog.com is for general information and learning purposes so hopefully you don't make the same mistakes I made. The information is based on my opinion based on my perception of my reality and my life experiences…and maybe the experiences of people I’ve encountered along the way.
I, Jackie of edifymeblog.com, am not providing any medical, legal, or religious advice since I am not professionally trained or educated in any of these fields. Any of the information I provide is through trial and error via my own failures and successes, books I've read, or folks I've talked to. My degree is in business and even though I am extremely proud of that since I earned it during one of the most difficult times in my life, I cannot waive it around as a basis for the revelations on this site. Please don't hold me responsible for typos, politically incorrect phrases, slang, incorrect use of grammar, etc. as I am only human and the rules seem to be forever-changing…as my teenager informs me on a daily basis. Please know this site is not intended to offend or cause harm to anyone; it's intended to help. But please be warned I am approaching 50 and I'm Italian so I may not care at the moment I am writing the post but please email me to let me know if I've stepped over the proverbial line...in your opinion. I may or may not see your point and may or may not do something about it. But know I respect your opinion either way because you are certainly entitled to it.
I try to monitor comments but granted some annoying, opinionated, trash-talking comments slip by me so I apologize in advance if you happen to stumble upon them.

Some of the photos I’ve taken and some I’ve used from Graphicstock.com using my paid membership. The photos I’ve taken of me, my family, my life are, of course, legally owned by me, Jackie at edifymeblog.com but if you would like to reuse them, please email me at info@edifymeblog.com.

Letters to Me
I love comments and feedback; constructive, entertaining, and from the heart kind of stuff of course. Anything I receive as comments on this site or other social media platforms may be shared with the readers of this blog. I truly believe your feedback is crucial for everyone’s benefit so I hope you don’t mind. If you do mind, please let me know and I will refrain from publishing it out of respect for you, unless it’s just too juicy to pass up in which case I will beg relentlessly until you cave.

Advertisers and Sponsors
To cover the costs of running the site edifymeblog.com, and so I can quit my job and do this full-time, I have opted to run advertisements on my website. Honestly, I love to write, I have a lot to say, and I love to share my experiences…so I’m hoping this website will allow me to fulfill my dreams of working from home and doing what I love. It’s been a huge learning curve so we’ll see if it pans out…fingers crossed. Knowing this, if for some reason the site is annoyingly lagging and the ads are getting too obnoxious, please email me at info@edifymeblog.com and I’ll try and tame them. I also participate in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program which is an affiliate program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising products and linking to Amazon.com. I do receive a small commission if you make a purchase using any of the links and many thanks if you do. Please know that it doesn't cost you anything extra when you make a purchase via one of these affiliate links. 

Final Note
I truly appreciate your trust in my confidentiality, knowledge, compassion, and consistency and I’ll be honest if I receive any kick-backs for any products I use or discuss. But also, I won’t endorse anything that I don’t totally and completely believe in either. I’ll give you my honest feedback. I don’t have any control over the advertisements that appear on the site.

Thank you and enjoy, comment, share, and subscribe.
