RVA Policies Effective March 1, 2017

RVA Living is a collaborative blog written by a group of individuals who love living in RVA and the surrounding areas.  Our goal is to provide honest, straight-forward reviews and information on everything great we discover in RVA! In addition:

  • We created this blog because we love living in RVA (well, we technically live in our assigned ‘bubble’ but love exploring the entire community surrounding us!) We invite you to visit our blog often and read of your own free will.
  • We provide RVA residents and vendors with a new perspective on our great city and the surrounding area by including content that showcases what we love about RVA.
  • We focus primarily on local RVA businesses: small, medium, and big – but we also showcase anything “RVA” or “Richmond” related (service providers, artisans, or others may not necessarily be located in RVA, but their products may be customized for our city).
  • The opinions expressed in our content are solely the opinions and thoughts of the blog owner(s) unless otherwise noted and we do not guarantee that our readers will have the exact same experiences. Any issues or concerns about products or services should be handled directly with the business or organization providing those products or services.
  • Any winners of giveaways through the blog are selected through random drawings and winners announced are final. Product or service giveaways do not influence the content of the blog, but we may include content about the product or service if we believe it is of interest to our readers.
  • All photos or images are taken by the blog owners or their associates and are not available for reuse without written permission from RVA Living (unless otherwise noted). For more information, contact us at info@RVALiving.com.
  • The information we provide is for informational or entertainment purposes only, and when readers are in doubt, they should seek help from a professional. While we make every effort to provide only accurate, complete information – we are only human and this is simply a blog.
  • RVA Living is  the legal copyright holder of all material on our blog so we ask that you not use it to reprint or publish without written consent from RVA Living blog owner(s). But if you love it and want to reuse it, let us know and we’ll talk about options (info@RVALiving.com).
  • We make every attempt possible to include credit for information, images, quotes, or other materials we run across – however, if we miss something please let us know so we can update it!

Your Privacy

  • We respect the privacy of our readers and we will not sell any of your personal or contact information to another company or individual.
  • We are not responsible for information provided by you directly to advertisers on this site.


  • This blog accepts forms of cash for paid advertising with links directly to client websites that are advertising on the site.
  • We have made a very conscious decision not to accept payment for any ‘sponsored content’ since the views expressed in our content are solely the views of our own staff and are not influenced by sponsors or advertisers. You can rest assured you’re getting an unbiased, ‘unpaid’ opinion.
  • Any advertising compensation received will never influence the content, topics or posts made in this blog.
  • Any products or services featured on this blog are treated equally; reviews are always honest, open, and transparent. Only products or services that are likely to appeal to or be of interest to readers will be featured.
  • We have made a very conscious decision to limit the amount of advertising on our site to ensure an easy-to-read, friendly and inviting site. Advertising is sold on a first-come first-served basis.
  • We reserve the right to refuse any advertising which we believe is inappropriate, negative, or controversial for our target audience.

The owner(s) of this blog is not compensated to provide opinions on products, services, websites and various other topics. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely from the blog owner(s) or approved writers. If we claim or appear to be experts on a certain topic or product or service area, we are only providing our views and thoughts on products or services that we believe our audience will appreciate and enjoy (but thank you for thinking we were experts!). Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.

We hope you enjoy what you read on RVA Living and will share it with your friends and family. There is so much to enjoy about RVA and our vast community, and we look forward to this journey together!
