Advertising and Sponsored Content
Some of the blog content you see on Binnys Food and Travel Diaries will be sponsored by brands and are similar to advertorials you may see in a magazine. It’s important for me to remain transparent to my readers about the content that I create, so these posts will always be clearly marked with a disclaimer statement at the bottom of each post. Whether my content is sponsored or not, you can trust that everything I write or recommend will be 100% honest and genuine.
