Disclosure and Disclaimer?

Capsun’s Corner wrote an interesting piece the other day on whether blogs should have a “disclosure” policy on them or not.

At the time I didn’t really think too much about what I would put on a disclosure if I ever had one on my blog and I said:

I just figured out a disclosure if/when I ever do put one on:

“This is my blog… if you don’t like what I am posting…don’t read it. I won’t pull the trigger holding you to my blog… I promise”

I have thought about this a bit further and thought I would put a little “Disclosure/Disclaimer” on my blog in the bottom left corner (DISCLOSURE – These are snippets from other blogs).

Feel free to challenge me, disagree with me, or tell me I’m completely nuts in the comments section of each blog entry, but I reserve the right to delete any comment for any reason whatsoever (abusive, profane, rude, or anonymous comments) – so keep it polite, please.

In addition, my thoughts and opinions change from time to time…I consider this a necessary consequence of having an open mind. This weblog is intended to provide a semi-permanent point in time snapshot and manifestation of the various memes running around my brain, and as such any thoughts and opinions expressed within out-of-date posts may not the same, nor even similar, to those I may hold today.

Just in case. If I say something stupid in the future, it’s better to be able to point out that the stupidity is mine, and mine alone. My stupidity! You can’t have it! :)

While every caution has been taken to provide my readers with most accurate information and honest analysis, please use your discretion before taking any decisions based on the information in this blog.

I actually had to look up the difference between “Disclosure and Disclaimer” to make sure I was getting things straight:

Disclosure:

1. the act or an instance of disclosing; exposure; revelation.
2. that which is disclosed; a revelation.
3. Patent Law. (in a patent application) the descriptive information imparted by the specification claims, drawings, and models submitted.

Disclaimer:

1. the act of disclaiming; the renouncing, repudiating, or denying of a claim; disavowal.
2. a person who disclaims.
3. a statement, document, or assertion that disclaims responsibility, affiliation, etc.; disavowal; denial.

Disclosure/Disclaimer

“This is my blog… if you don’t like what I am posting.…  don’t read it.   I won’t pull the trigger holding you to my blog… I promise”

Wow… first of all I’m astounded that you even found this page… mahalo for visiting it.

Let me introduce myself.  I’m Damon Tucker and I blog because I enjoy getting information out to the community and I feel our local “mainstream” media here on the island doesn’t give us the full story at times.

Some Page Stats:

I receive about 20,000 – 30,000 page visits each month and I have more than 4000 + folks following me on Twitter… if that means anything to you.

I developed and administrate the  FBI Blogs (From Big Islands Best Blogs) and still to this day run the site as I have time… however it will be going through some changes in the near future.

PR and Sponsorship:

I love blogging about anything and everything and I will support most causes that I believe are beneficial to Hawaii in general.  Often times I will go on sponsored trips to help promote the Island.  Sometimes  I feel that we don’t get the media coverage that we should at times.

When I do go out on sponsored trips, I will always disclose that the trip is sponsored.

Sponsorship of my blog:

I’m always seeking sponsors of this blog and folks looking to trade interesting events for coverage of their events.

I don’t get compensated for what I blog about other then free tickets at times… so I’ll try my best to represent what I’m blogging about as I’m blogging about sponsored events.

If you know or think your event sucks… it would be better not to ask me to cover it… because I will say it sucks.

If you have an awesome hotel room, an awesome dinner or an awesome whatever… feel free to drop me an email at damontucker @ yahoo.com and let me find out for myself.
