I have seen on several of the blogs a very nice and contained FTC disclosure. It is well worded and set to a nice background that blends with the blog. Is this something that is available. Is there a place on the web to find this type of pre set up disclosure. What do most of the bloggers do to follow the letter of this disclosure. I am just interested in the different ways this is handled.

My basic FTC disclosure is:

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

This the statement that is suggested by the BookSneeze bloggers program. I modify it slightly depending on who the book came from.

To make sure you include everything in your statement, you can use this multiple choice disclosure form as a starting point: http://disclosurepolicy.org/ Also see "How to Write a Screamingly Effective Blog Disclosure Policy" by Problogger http://www.problogger.net/archives/2009/12/11/a-screamingly-effecti...
For an example, you can see how I wrote my disclosure here: http://parchmentgirl.com/ (Click on the little "disclosure" tab at the top of the welcome box.) Hope this helps!

I do not waste my time putting a FTC disclosure with each review post. It's my blog I do what I want. So I have a disclaimer in my side bar that says this . . .DISCLAIMER
All books, music, and products that are reviewed on this blog are provided to me for free from a publisher, agent, or blog networking agency. My review is my honest opinion, I am not paid for it.
That way it is right up front and personal and no one can complain! You can see my blog here Radiant Light
