Blog Participation At Chief Financial Mom

Thank you for taking an interest in the Chief Financial Mom blog.

We’re so glad that you’re here and can’t wait to see how you’ll contribute to the conversation happening around the content we’ve created for you. We work hard to bring you the most relevant content we’re capable of producing. And because we value your input, feedback, and perspective we’ve made the decision to maintain an active comment section for each post published.

The comment section on our blog is a place for thoughtful discussion. Before you make your contribution to that discussion, please be sure you have carefully read and understood our comment policy.


The Golden Standard

Our top criteria for an approved comment is one that adds value. There are several ways to add value to a conversation: asking a relevant question, answering a question, providing expanded insight, or explaining a thoughtful counter-point in a respectful way, to name just a few.

Civility is not optional

The Chief Financial Mom blog is meant to be a place of empowerment, thoughtful discussion, encouragement, and learning.

You are welcome to disagree with us, our authors, or other commenters, but the tone of those discussions will remain civil or those comments will be deleted.

We will not tolerate personal attacks, hate speech, rude or offensive language, or anything our editorial staff considers detrimental to the community.

All rights reserved

We reserve the right to edit, delete, move, or mark as spam any comment we choose. We also reserve the right to block any IP address that violates this comment policy from commenting, subscribing, or accessing the Chief Financial Mom blog.


When posting a comment on our blog you take full responsibility for it. You agree to hold Chief Financial Mom, all post authors, and other commenters harmless.

Name Use

All comments must be posted under your real name or nick name. If you use a company name, obvious alias, or keyword-stuffed phrase your comment will be deleted and marked as spam.

Proper Linking Practices

Any link that appears to be shortened for tracking, masked, pointing to a product/services page or is otherwise suspicious will be deleted.

Links to products, resources, or other sites are not permitted in the comment body. Do not sign off with a link to your website.

In all of these instances you run the risk of your whole comment being deleted and marked as spam. Repeat offenders will be blocked.

Sharing resources the right way

Occasionally, the best way to add value to a conversation is to share a tool or resource with the community that they may not know about.

To assure that the motivations for sharing these tools and resources are for the benefit of the community and not self promotional, we strongly discourage linking to them.

Instead, name the tool or resource (as well as who created it) so that it is easy for others to search for. If you are the creator of a tool or resource you’d like to recommend, make sure that connection is understood by providing full disclosure upfront.

What is and is not considered self promotional or “spammy” is entirely up to the discretion of our editorial staff.


All comments must be family friendly. We reserve the right to delete without notice any comment using curse words.

Additionally, we create and publish content in English. We’re thrilled if you are a non-English communicator who can understand and gain value from our content. However, we are not equipped for comment moderation in multiple languages so please leave your comments in English. Any comment our moderators are unable to understand will be deleted. This includes comments written in English with especially poor spelling and grammar.


Don’t do it. If you do do it, your comments will be deleted, marked as spam, and you will be blocked.
