Disclosure and Privacy Policy

Hello there lovely reader! I’m so glad that you’ve stumbled into my little corner of the internet. Hodge Podge Moments is part passion project and part income generator. It started out as a hobby blog, but I’ve recently moved towards blogging as a business. This means that I need to share a few things with you so that you know what to expect when you’re interacting here on the blog.


FTC Regulations state that I need to disclose when I’m using affiliate links. You will find these used throughout my blog posts and the individual posts always have an additional note at the top to remind you of these links.These links allow me to make a small commission from your purchase; however, they do not affect your buying experience at all.

“I, Pamela Hodges, am also a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com.”

Privacy Policy

You will find instances on the blog where I ask for your email address. I do not share your email address with anyone else. I do not believe in spamming or selling your information to others. I use your email address as a way to communicate great finds, tips, and more via my weekly newsletter. You are able to opt out of these emails at anytime if you find that they no longer help you.

I am here to help you simplify and find ways to take the “busy” out of your everyday life. My goal is to help you find joy in the little moments of your day so that you can enjoy life and all that it has to offer. If you have any questions or concerns, you can always reach me at pam@hodgepodgemoments.com.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

We use a few outside sites to help us best maintain our site. Mailerlite is used to collect names and email addresses for our weekly newsletter. Thinkific is used to host our programs and products that we have available for purchase. Google Analytics is used to collect and analyze data about visitors to our site.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
