There will continue to be ongoing debates regarding the blogs written in support of sponsors by the Allrecipes Allstar Ambassadors. First let me say that I take no offense to
any of the comments on the buzz and I do believe that some of the Allstars are well aware of the comments made.
Yes we do write blogs about sponsors. Do we have to? No it is a voluntary position. As we interact with a sponsor and test their product sometimes we are asked to write a blog
related to that product. When we have tested a product that we truly like a blog is our way of sharing this product with you. If a blog is written about a sponsors meat product are we offending the vegetarians? I hope not. Their is no intent to offend anyone
with our blogs. You may read or not read them on your own free will.
Do we need a disclaimer up front that the blog is sponsor related? I
don’t think so. If you started to read it and found out that it was a blog in support of a sponsor and became upset, all I can say is that something piqued your interest. Think about it, if you are driving down the street and approaching billboards should
there be a sign, “warning billboards ahead” take a detour? There is advertisement all around us everyday primarily to promote a product. Advertisement keeps some things free, like T.V., radio and this web site, just to mention a few.
Yes I am an Allrecipe Allstar Ambassador and proud to be one. The contend and opinions expressed in this blog are purely the sole opinions of bd.weld.
This blog was written in support of the Allrecipe Allstar Ambassadors that write blogs here on Allrecipes.
