STATEMENT OF ETHICS
In alignment with the https://www.humanetech.com
Our promise to you
Ponderings seeks to inform and inspire, providing you with stories about people you may not have had the opportunity to know otherwise. We seek to bridge the gap between inequality, inclusion and polarization through a shared narrative. Our promise to you is to commit to doing so ethically; we no longer use social media platform advertising, we built our app ourselves so not to expose you to data collection and protect your privacy, and we continue to navigate this space with integrity and the information available to us.
We always seek permission from contributors and artists. We pay our journalists. We do not use paid product placement, and we do not advocate for anything in return for money —pure storytelling without any sleight of hand.
Rules of engagement
We will not:
- Set posting quotas to optimize for the algorithm.
- Further amplify sensational stories, employ opaque “curiosity gaps”, or use copy as clickbait.
- collect any data that isn’t provided with your express consent or necessary for the basic management of our web properties (
- Monetize our content through the use of interruptive or targeted ads, or any ads for that matter.
- Use a Facebook tracking Pixel or Instagram pixel to track your movements.
- Invite in dialogue and commenting on our posts, but will not stand for hate speech or other inflammatory attacks e.g., revealing personal information, using obscene language, etc.
Ponderings is a Magazine to spark your innate curiosity and share the stories of us. An eco-system of three dynamic layers; digital magazine + podcast, in-print anthology + App.
A new paradigm in storytelling, Ponderings is a grassroots magazine platform and a feast for the heart and mind, seeking to inform, inspire and create reflection.
Real stories and emotional intelligence combined with creating a community rewarded with a sense of connection is the guts of it. It’s resonating quickly.
Ponderings online magazine was born from an existential crisis and the personal forging from tragedy to triumph. A positive space.
I believe people are seeking something more, a primal need to be together in what can feel like a very separate world. There are stories out there waiting to be told. A communication feast of the heart and mind is at our core at Ponderings.
