In 2013, after two (2) full years of blogging, and with the travel/mileage/finance niche getting crowded, I started to see time and time again some of our content getting lifted onto other blogs with absolutely zero credit back to the original source. While we live in an information rich society, and deals are free for anyone to post about, there have been several cases where we first published an offer, and also posted it to forums, and then immediately after it floods the blogs. That is great, as we all deserve it to our audience to get the information out there. However, at least have the courtesy to credit the info. That is where I made a stand not only for myself, but our audience.
I believe in Blogging with Integrity! What that now means for me is that anytime we learn of an offer, we credit the source. It is the right thing to do as someone else may have worked hard to not only acquire that information, but took the time to share it. That is why at the bottom of each post you will see a “Source” listed. Sometimes we come up with our own content, but with deals, they spread by multiple sources. By giving credit to the source, it also allows for easy accounting on our end.
Second, Blogging with Integrity means giving an acknowledgement to those that have linked to us. That is the purpose of this page. Lots of other great bloggers have shared our stories and Blogged with Integrity by linking back to us. For that, we are greatly appreciative, and you will now see your credit below.
