Blog Policies & Disclosures

All text, images, and other content that are part of this blog are the property of Blue i Style, unless otherwise noted. All material is copyright protected.

I love the supportive and collaborative nature of the blogging community and I appreciate features and shares of my content, so long as they comply with the following guidelines. Full blog posts or tutorials can not be reprinted without my express written consent. You may share a single photo, so long as the following requirements are met:

  • No collaged images, or images with text overlays may be featured
  • All features must explicitly stated credit to Blue i Style together with a link back to the original content (not just to the homepage). Credit must be stated immediately before or after the photo.
  • The no-pin code must be used to prevent the image from being pinned to Pinterest from your site. 
  • A one to two sentence summary from a post may be included with the photo, but no text may be directly copied, and the project steps, supplies, and/or sources may not be disclosed.  
  • Photos should be kept in their original state. Watermarks {if any} may not be cropped out, and the photo may not be edited in any way, without express permission. 

Failure to comply with these policies constitutes copyright infringement.

I like to make free printables available to my readers, but these printables are for personal use only and may not be sold. If you would like to feature one of my printables, you may use one photo or image of the printable with credit to Blue i Style and a link to the specific post on my site where the download link can be found. You may not provide a direct link to the printable file.

Pinning is welcomed and encouraged, but if I indicate that an image is from another blog or website, please follow the link and pin from the original source.

Thank you! If you have any questions about sharing any material from Blue i Style, don’t hesitate to shoot me an email at blueistyleblog@gmail.com.

Blue i Style is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com.

My posts may also contain affiliate links to other companies and websites.  If you click on an affiliate link and buy something, I may receive a very small commission; however, this does not result in any additional cost to you. I make an effort to add a notation in posts that contain affiliate links, however, mentions of associated products/services/businesses within the content of my blog may not always be so noted in every reference.  The small amount of affiliate income I may earn helps to offset the costs of operating this blog. Thanks you for your support!
