Under the WordPress.com TOS advertising restrictions, would I be allowed to add <b>raincoaster</b> as an Author?
The reason I as is that previously I have had Authors whose own blogs promoted their various commercial interests, one social media marketing like raincoaster, the other real estate. I was extremely strict, perhaps in hindsight now overly so, about them making posts into my blog that directly promoted their personal expertise in their respective interests.
I see now from the raincoaster example that each of them could easily have maintained their respective blogs on WordPress.com without being in violation of the WordPress.com TOS..
What remains unclear to me is that, if they had blogs promoting commercial interests as raincoaster's does and they posted their own blog material - in its first person form perfectly WorPress.com acceptable - into my blog as my Authors, does my now third-party relationship to their self-promotion create the trigger that violates the WordPress.com TOS?
I receive no compensation of any sort from any of my Authors.
Again, does my third-party blog relationship create a violation that would not exist in direct first-party blog form?
Thanks in advance.
The blog I need help with is aleksandreia.wordpress.com.
