Disclosure Policy

As a former journalist who now works in non-profit marketing, ethics have been pretty firmly imprinted in my brain. I cringe when I see dishonest writers abusing their platform for kick-backs, and it’s my belief that a highly defined sense of ethics is what separates professionals from the rest of the pack. For that reason, I want to be very clear: any opinions posted on TheHopefulTraveler.com are 100% my own.

Under no circumstances will I ever post something on this site that I don’t personally believe. Any reviews or recommendations posted on The Hopeful Traveler will always be based on my truthful observations—and if there ever comes a time when I write about something I received for free or at a rate not available to the general public, I will absolutely disclose that information in the post itself.
