PR Friendly/Disclosure



I am available for promoting your product or service through reviews/giveaways on this blog. I offer advertising options via buttons/banners/badges and text links.  I also coordinate campaigns across multiple blogs for a flat  fee based on the number of blogs you wish to promote on. I handle the entire process start to finish. Email me for rates and a quicksheet of my stats.
I am open to products/services in health, beauty, household, fitness, books, movies, pet supplies, grocery items, technology, and green categories, and website reviews. I do sponsored/paid posts for a flat per word fee. I will not review for adult or horror themed products. Opinions will be 100% honest, based on my personal experience with your product. If I have a negative experience I will contact you prior to posting/starting the review/giveaway to allow time for addressing any issues. I may solicit opinions from close friends and family about items being reviewed. I will encourage readers to visit your website, facebook, twitter, and/or any other specific requests you may have as part of the review. Giveaways will last as long as requested. I believe a giveaway should be fun and high energy, focused on getting readers excited about your product. I have personally purchased many items that I entered to win on various blogs and I feel that a successful giveaway will produce new customers and clients.
