This is a personal weblog written by 8 female contributors and guest contributors which change from time to time.

The opinions expressed here represent each individual writer, who is posting her story as a third-party contributor, and not the overall views and opinions of 8 Women Dream as a whole.

If you find something in error, or a problem with an individual contributor, please email pr(at)8womendream(dot)com.

In addition, any thoughts and opinions may change from time to time. 8 Women Dream and its contributors consider this a necessary consequence of being women. This weblog is intended to provide a semi-permanent point in time snapshot of the lives of women as they chase (or live) their dreams, and as such any thoughts and opinions expressed within out-of-date posts may not be the same — nor even similar — to those they may hold today.

For questions about this blog, please contact pr(at)8WomenDream(dot)com or visit our Contact Us page.

This blog may accept forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation from time to time.

This blog abides by word of mouth marketing standards. 8 Women Dream and its contributors believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. If at any time now or in the future, any compensation received which may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog will be clearly identified as paid or sponsored content.

8 Women Dream likes readers and genuinely does not wish to anger them with not disclosing advertising relationships, but this site does accept advertising from companies that offer a benefit to 8WD readers.
