TRUTH or DARE: The Truth Behind Writing for My Blog

I have been asked about why my blog only has positive experiences on it.  Do I write truthfully?  How do my readers know if I am writing from a personal experience with truth?  Do I get paid for positive posts only?

While I do write occasionally for "sponsored" posts, I have not and will not ever write a post dishonestly.

When I started writing my blog almost 2 years ago, I decided that I wanted a positive place where parents can check for the best places to go and have a great time with their families.  If someone asks me to review a product or event and we don't have the experience promised, I would rather not waste my time, energy and negativity on it.


I don't allow companies to bully me into always writing a positive review regardless if I have tried their product, attended their events  or experience their business.

I let each and every person I work with know that if I like/love a product, business or event, I will showcase them and shout it to the world of Social Media.  I do however reserve the right to write a review of the said products and/or event in the event of lack of expectation.  I have experienced the good, the bad and the ugly of marketing and business and I have chosen to be as honest as I can.

That being said, if any of my readers know of a place that they would like to know about, please feel free to email me at Kirstin@socalkidsoutdooradventures.com and ask what my experience has been.  I will always be honest when asked.  If I haven't had the chance to check out a place or review something, maybe I can direct you to a fellow blogger that HAS reviewed it.

I work with a network of wonderful bloggers who all contribute to different aspects of Southern California living.  Please feel free to ask for recommendations and I am always up for suggestions for new, family friendly adventures.

I am excited to try new and exciting things with my family this summer and I can't wait to share them with everyone!  Please keep checking in with us as we muddle through this adventure that we call raising kids!
