Privacy and Disclosure Policy


My primary goal at Raising Haligonians is to provide parents, caregivers, and teachers with suggestions for local adventure outings, provide ideas for educational and entertaining activities, and to share information about local resources. To accomplish this goal, I share things my children and I have done together, I voice my opinion on topics relevant to parenthood, and I feature products that I believe are of interest and value to my readers.

My secondary goal is to generate enough income to cover my expenses (e.g., blog hosting services, supplies for projects, costs of outings, etc.) and to provide an income for living. For these reasons, I accept forms of sponsorship, paid advertising or other forms of compensation such as small commissions from affiliate links, such as These affiliations do not result in additional charges to you or cost you anything extra. Mentions of associated products/services/businesses within the content of the blog may or may not be noted as an affiliate in every reference.
