Editorial Guidelines

Typically Topical’s Editorial Guidelines

At Typically Topical, the no. 1 priority is you, the reader. I take great care to ensure the quality of the content published upholds the most rigorous editorial guidelines to ensure complete integrity, trust, and accuracy.

I only ever publish original and quality writing backed by my extensive background in both the psychological and spiritual fields (please see my about page for more information on my experience and expertise).

Let’s face it, you didn’t click just to read the same thing.

You want 100% original, helpful, and actionable guidance that you can apply to each and every area of your life, where and as you see fit.

Many sites out there tend to respin work they find on other blogs with no real input or personal expertise, unfortunately resulting in a long chain of copycat content.

I can assure you that isn’t the case here.

At the heart of all my published blog posts is thoroughness. I spend lots of time combing through expert sources, such as scientific studies, research (where applicable), and peer-reviewed articles to find up-to-date and vetted information.

In many cases for topics that are undocumented or subjective such as starseeds, I conduct my own research and survey studies.

Everything written is then my original thoughts, insights, and expertise.

No cookie-cutter approach here.

If you come across an article that you believe could be improved, please contact me by email at charlotte@typicallytopical.com.


I want you to be confident in the accuracy of the information you read on the site. To help maintain this standard, Typically Topical has a dedicated team of fact-checkers who review all articles after they are published.

If you have questions or concerns about any of the information in my articles, please email me at charlotte@typicallytopical.com, and I will investigate and update as necessary.

Corrections Policy

Typically Topical strives to provide accurate and up-to-date information. If you believe that something on the site requires correction or updating, please email me at charlotte@typicallytopical.com. 

I, alongside my fact-checkers, will review and if necessary, make the appropriate changes.


If I need to cite a third party for evidence, all information on Typically Topical is sourced from high-quality, trusted authority sites.

Any time you see a statistic or data-driven claim, there will be a link to the source material where it appears.

If I interview an expert in another field, I only work with those who have extensive experience and credentials in their field so that you, the reader, can be confident in the advice you are receiving.

Product Recommendations

Typically Topical only recommends products that I, Charlotte Kirsten, believe in and have used myself. I do extensive research to find the best products out there so you can be confident you are getting high-quality recommendations.

You’ll actually be hard-pressed to find an affiliate link on the site, that’s because I use them incredibly sparingly.

As a result of poor experiences with other creators, I now create my own products, which go through rounds of beta testing with a minimum of 100 students before launch.

Post-launch, my courses, and products also go through another round of revision so you can be sure you’re only receiving the highest quality training and education.

As of Dec 2022, my courses are currently going through an application and vetting process to become accredited by the International Complementary Medical Association.

Any reviews of external products are always based on a neutral point of view. My editorial content compares and contrasts different courses, products, and services so that you, the reader, can make your own educated decision.

Independence & Impartiality 

Typically Topical is dedicated to unbiased and fair reporting. Any advertisers or sponsors I directly work with have no say in my content and how it is written.

If I notice a company leaning toward a positive, biased review, I immediately stop working with them. I value honesty and transparency.

I maintain a clear distinction between advertising and editorial content. Any ads placed within editorial content come from Mediavine, an ad placement company. All external ads carry an ‘M’ logo beneath them.

Please note, I have no control over the ads that are shown to you as it’s based on your location and preferences.

No Personal Life Advice

Typically Topical does not give personal life, career, financial or relationship advice. The material on the site is for informational and educational purposes only.

I do not know you or your circumstances personally, so all information should be applied at your own discretion.

If you would like more information on anything that is discussed above, please don’t hesitate to reach out via email or the contact page.
