One Ruud Mom is a personal blog written and edited by me, Jules Ruud.
I am a human being with a lot of opinions and a love for writing everything down.
I am not an expert in anything other than myself and my own kids. Although, even that is arguable since they are constantly flipping the script. Everything I write is in the moment and based on personal experiences. Any advice you choose to follow from my blog is at your own risk. You are here because you want to be here and I appreciate you for that.
The content shared on my site is my personal property.
I am the legal copyright holder unless otherwise noted. If there is any material on my site that you wish to reprint or republish, you need my written consent. I will most likely say yes to anything, aside from the use of my photos so it doesn’t hurt to ask. Send an email to email@example.com and I will be happy to hash out the details with you.
If you ever see my content on a site that you wouldn’t expect to see my content on, let me know. It is not uncommon for people to republish another writer’s work without their permission. Unless they link back to the original source (and they almost never do), it is very easy to miss.
Speaking of linking back, feel free to link back to me at any time. Whether you are referring to my content positively or negatively, I would love to see what you have to say or write about it so let me know where I can find it.
On occasion, I do get paid to test and review products.
I will make it clear any time that is the case. While payment may influence what I write about, it will not influence how I write about it. I pride myself on only sharing my honest and genuine opinions with you. There is no amount of money in the world that could convince me to write a positive review about a product I do not like/love.
Any brand that I write about is a brand I trust, but brands make mistakes too. I am not responsible for any negative experience you may have with a brand you reach through my site, but I would be willing to help you resolve any issue you might face if I can.
Affiliate links are regularly shared on my site.
I am a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for me to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites. As well as several other sites.
These links will be labeled clearly. They do not affect what you pay for any purchase you make through my site. What they do is allow me to make a small commission off any purchase you make using my links. For that, I thank you. The commission I make allows me to keep my blog up and running.
All comments are welcome as long as they are constructive.
I do not expect that we will agree on everything. I welcome differing opinions, always, but I also reserve the right to delete offensive or inappropriate comments and to ban anyone who is repeatedly abusive with no warning. If you see something posted by someone else that you don’t think should be there, please let me know as I can miss comments left here and there.
I never plan to, but I do reserve the right to shut down this site if I ever see fit.
One Ruud Mom was originally launched in 2013 and has now been relaunched in 2021. I like to think there will never be another reason to shut it down, but I like to think I will give you a warning if it does. Things happen, though, so this is here to cover my butt in the event I cannot give you a warning.
With all of that being said, there is a chance I missed something so if you know of anything I should have covered, but didn’t, I would appreciate a heads up.
Thank you. I am happy that you are here.
