Disclosure \ Disclaimer? Whatever - I'll have this one.

As a blogger there are certain rules you should follow because it's simply polite to, certain rules you should follow because it's best practice to, and certain rules you have to follow because it's the law. The whole 'disclosure' thing is the latter kind (I think... *waits for barrage of contradition*).

Anyway, whilst putting up a previous sponsored post I unintentionally put 'Disclaimer' rather than my usual 'Disclosure' at the bottom of it. The more I looked at the two words the less sure I was about which one I should be using.

So of course I did what we all do when in a quandary about something.

I Googled it.

What I found exceeded my expectations on every level.

The best disclosure I've come across yet. I SO want to rob this for myself:

"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and manifestation of the various memes running around my brain, and as such any thoughts and opinions expressed within out-of-date posts may not the same, nor even similar, to those I may hold today.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. Author will not compensate you in any way whatsoever if you ever happen to suffer a loss/inconvenience/damage because of/while making use of information in this blog."
So there! *Sticks two fingers up at the blogging police* Now, most definitely need to get to work on mine. Thanks to Damon for showing me the light!
