The Walking Mermaid is a personal blog. All opinions, stories, pictures, etc… are my own unless otherwise noted in the post and properly accredited. This blog accepts sponsorship, paid advertisement, commission, or other forms of compensation. On each post you will find a specific disclaimer regarding that post in particular. In some cases I may find an item or a cause that I am passionate about and may purchase an item to share with my followers on here. As a blogger I work with different companies, brands, shops, affiliate marketing agencies, and other organizations and agencies to help promote my blog, share my experiences, travels, products and reviews. To remain transparent with those I work with and with my followers, I will put a specific disclosure/disclaimer on the post. On social media I will use the terms #ad, #sponsored, or #ambassador to indicate the type of post and affiliation with the product and/or caption.
As a passionate blogger, I guarantee you, the reader, that you will never find me promoting, advertising, or writing about anything that I do not support or would apply to my own life. I am not here to make a quick advertisement ad or money. I am here to provide you the most honest and loyal blog through respect and integrity.
My blog will not contain any content which might present a conflict of interest.
For any questions regarding my transparency policy feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Ladies and gentlemen. I can’t stress this enough. Safety! Safety!! Safety!!! My blog is to be used as a guide and a guide only. It is up to you to properly prepare for your own travels, adventures, etc. I speak about my own personal opinions on my blog to provide inspiration to those who seek to travel, explore, and adventure to those same places.
When visiting the outdoors always know your limitations. Some of my experiences may be strenuous and it is very important to know your limits to avoid getting lost, injuring yourself or others, or even something worse. It is important to always check the weather and terrain and plan accordingly. It is very important to care for the great outdoors. I can’t stress enough the topic of Leave No Trace. Always keep it clean, pick up after yourself, don’t litter, don’t harm and/or harass the wildlife and nature, and stay on the trail. Doing so will help maintain the areas well kept for many future generations to enjoy.
You will find affiliate links posted throughout some posts and pages on my website. Affiliate links only means that I am providing advertisements to companies in exchange for a small commission at no additional charge to you. These commissions is what keeps my website free to you. Clicking or purchasing through these links will help me continue to provide you with travel tips, inspiration, and so much more. These companies are Amazon, Ergo Baby, and Target. I try to keep the advertisements on my sidebar to a minimum.
