Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!
Books I have authored.
Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

Ok, I saw a new blog at Fuelmyblog under Forum, under the Blog Café, under Introduce your blog to the world. Alessandra had posted and no one had responded. Libra to the rescue, I find that I can’t stand it if people are being ignored so I checked out her blog and liked it. I added her as a friend and hope she will do the same. On her site she had instructions for BlogDay which seemed like a very cool thing to do. So here is BlogDay.
BlogDay posting instructions:
1. Find 5 new Blogs that you find interesting
2. Notify the 5 bloggers that you are recommending them as part of BlogDay 2008
3. Write a short description of the Blogs and place a link to the recommended Blogs
4. Post the BlogDay Post (on August 31st) and
5. Add the BlogDay tag using this link: http://technorati.com/tag/BlogDay2008 and a link to the BlogDay web site at http://www.blogday.org
#1 Seems only right that Alessandra’s Out of the Blue should be my first new blog. Alessandra reads stuff I’ve never heard of let alone I want to read. That may be why I liked her blog. I found interesting things to read, ideas to use in my own blog and organizations I wanted to join.
#2 is SciFi Signal which I just googled and liked. Tidbits, videos, good graphics, prolific and all about SciFi, what’s not to like.
#3 Geeks of Doom, a strange and entertaining site, focused on movies and dvd’s not books but worth checking out.
#4 Fantasy Book Critic is a more traditional (fantasy traditional?) site with good reviews.
#5 File Under Misc. is a personal blog that just looked interesting, it is.
