Product reviews

Products sent for editorial consideration are welcomed, although a feature/exposure on the blog or on social media is not guaranteed and is subject to my discretion. Any feature will be published to fit into the content schedule. If you would like any products returned it shall be at your own cost.



In general the product or service to be given away must be provided to me for prior review or in lieu of a sponsored post payment. In addition I generally ask that the total prize pool be at least $150 to make it worthwhile for readers to enter and to reflect my work in producing, publishing, promoting and administering the giveaway.
