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.

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 are 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. You will find these on a post disclosed as the example below.

I will do collaborations with other companies to review products. I will never review a product that I have not personally tested out myself. All reviews will have my personal and honest opinion about the product and the company. If I do not like the product or don’t feel that it is safe to use I will not review it or promote it on my blog or social media. If for some reason I like the product but there is a few things about it that I may dislike I will point it out on my post. Being honest and transparent with my audience is very important to me. I try to do a pros and con point of view on my posts to give you, the reader, an honest feedback.
You can read the reviews I have previously done here. You will find these posts properly disclosed towards the bottom of the post explaining details about the collaboration.
