USE OF OUR CONTENT
If you see a recipe or craft here that you would like to use, we would love to share it. All we ask is that you give us credit and a link back to the original post. That being said, we love sharing recipes and crafts, but we do not condone, nor do we agree with plagiarism or photo use not following the terms listed above.
Plagiarism is not only rude, but it will also result in Google duplicate content penalties for both sites. Just write it in your own words, please.

Editorial Opinions and Accountability:

Our editorial teams are responsible for reviewing and fact-checking all content before publication.
SMART FUN DIY AND AI
At Smart Fun DIY, our writers, editors, and other employees will use AI as an added resource. We use this technology as a reference resource only. We value the human touch when it comes to creativity. That said, our writers and editors will never use AI as a substitute for insight and talent.
How We May Use AI:
Inspiring ideas, topics, descriptions, and headlines.
Targeting content for audiences and occasions.
Formatting posts and outlines
Answers for reader inquiries
Grammarly for spelling, phrase construction, and of course, grammar.
How We Don’t Use AI:
Complete articles or full paragraphs. We use AI as a tool and an assistant, not as an author or editor.
We only use licensed images, or images created in our own studio and are not sourced through AI.
There is no substitute for research. Smart Fun DIY does not trust this to AI.
AI and Privacy:
We never insert sensitive information such as addresses, names, or any other contact information.
This prevents any AI program from storing it and sharing these details inappropriately.
AI is evolving quickly. Our policies and guidelines will be updated as this technology advances.
