These guidelines are valid from June 1st, 2010, and may be changed at any time. Posts written before this date may possibly not adhere to these guidelines as they are not retroactive.

My Everyday Truths is a personal blog, written and edited by Kate, (AKA My Everyday Truths). For questions about this blog, please contact Kate at myeverydaytruths@gmail.com


My Everyday Truths (AKA “Kate”) reviews a wide range of products and services.


Kate generally does not send back review items, unless the item is very expensive and only if an agreement has been made before the item has been sent to her. If she continues to use an item after the initial review, there may be a follow-up review.

Kate does not review all of the products sent to her. Sending her a product does not guarantee a review or mention, unless agreed upon beforehand. If Kate does choose to review a product, the review will be Kate's honest opinion. Kate has no interest in bad-mouthing or embarrassing products or companies, and will strive to take into account the product or service’s target audience and other factors before posting a negative review. If there is something wrong or irregular about the product, Kate will give the company a chance to make things right before posting a review.

If you would like Kate to consider an item for review, please email her at myeverydaytruths@gmail.com
 for her address, or use the Contact form found in the menu options.
