While in conversation today with a fellow blogger, I realized that since I moved my blog here to Remix Teaching, I haven’t posted a disclosure policy. In the interests of complete transparency, I believe that it’s very important that all bloggers disclose when their opinions might in some way be compromised. Since the last time I did this, I’ve built up an increasing web of schools that have hired me to do private consultation, conferences that have provided me with financial benefits and/or free entrance to events, and developers who have offered me free access to apps and services. While I have not nor do I ever plan to accept money or free things in exchange for changing the content of this blog or placing advertising on it, my work online has contributed in many ways big and small to my ability to attend conferences, evaluate apps and services, and increase my income. While I don’t believe any of these things affects the content of this blog, I will do my best to be forthright about any potential entanglements.

You can read the complete disclosure policy and a list of all of my known relationships here.

If you’re a blogger, how are you disclosing relationships that may influence your writing? Have you ever really thought about the ways in which you’ve received money and services and how those might influence your work?
