Q. What is a sponsored post?
A. A sponsored post is the equivalent of having a radio program or television program “Brought to you by _____________.” Companies do not write the posts or control their content, rather their sponsorship simply makes the piece of content possible. The Art of Manliness will never allow companies to control our content nor will we ever post advertisements masquerading as articles. We decline many, many advertising opportunities because the advertisements do not fit with the site’s high values or because they would be too intrusive and annoying for our readers. We like sponsored posts as the sponsorships provide a very non-intrusive way to allow us to provide additional content and keep the site completely free for users.
