Ethics and Business Conduct

Ever since I decided to start blogging over a decade ago, I always made it a point to be open and honest when covering other folks’ content and businesses. This is really challenging at times because the truth is if a content creator wants to forge relationships and build connections with others businesses, the “influencer” world really discourages honest reviewing. It’s a delicate balance, especially if we’re trying to make an income off of our work.

What I have found is that most places and people have been happy to take constructive criticism in my reviews, though I have had to burn some bridges in the process. I consider this a worthy sacrifice to keep my content real. This has been at the forefront of my process when reviving my food blog and creating Boston Bytes. So I wanted to outline the integrity rules I have created and intend to abide bye.

• My promise to my audience is that any content here is fully my own and created of my own accord unless otherwise clearly noted.

• In any instance where I am offered sponsorship, advertisements, free products, etc. it will be clearly noted on the page, video, blog, social media post, etc.

• I will only cover sponsored content I genuinely enjoy.

• I don’t use a rating system, and instead will offer my insights, positive feedback, considerations, and areas of opportunity.

If you have any questions, concerns, or would like clarifications please don’t hesitate to reach out.
