Privacy Policy

A lot of people ask me about how I choose what to write about on Health & Swellness. I feature news, products, events, etc., that I find interesting, things I feel are worth covering (even if it’s as something as frivolous as a bacon cupcake!).

But I should probably disclose that many of the items I feature I have had the opportunity to test out or experience thanks to my work as a freelance writer–say, a new blush that the beauty company has sent over for consideration for a story, or that new health supplement, for example.

I am not paid to write about the products I feature on this website unless a post has been marked “sponsored,” in that case, yes, I’ve been paid for that blog post.

For the most part, though, what I write about is whatever catches my fancy.
