Good Morning WordPress Forums
I've just read this on Timethief's blog, that no advertising, retailing or reselling of other people's work or services is allowed on WordPress, I am sure it is in the original terms and conditions which is my responsibility to read. However I have some questions about this.
How do book, restaurant and or product reviews fit it to this dictum? If someone asks me where I sourced an unusual herb or spice for a recipe am I not supposed to reply? Or am I supposed to run my content before some editorial board before publishing it? I have read countless references on other people's blogs to products used, books that recipes are sourced from, restaurants visited, shops where you can buy stuff and so on. Are we not supposed to a) write about this b) link to where someone can find out more i.e. the blog of a friend who has published a book?
I notice that many small businesses have blogs which link to their main website where they sell their products and services. Is this allowed then?
How can I distinguish between a VIP blog and a non VIP blog? I can't see any visible marker on these. The average blogger will get the impression from reading the VIP blogs (if they don't know that they are allowed to do this, and why should they?) that they can advertise etc....if the distinction isn't drawn clearly.
Kind regards, Joanna
The blog I need help with is zebbakes.com.
