As of 3/5/2011 Here are my updated Rates & Info. for 2011…
Product Reviews – There is generally NO CHARGE for product reviews as long as a full sized product is supplied. Because I cannot give an honest review without actually having used the product. My readers trust that I give an honest review whether good or bad. I am a “I Blog With Integrity” Blogger.
Giveaways – We run our giveaways within the posts. Winners are announced in a separate winners post. Once winners claim their prize, we then send over all winner info. to the company at that time. If there is more than 1 winner, we will wait til all winners respond and claim their prize and send them all over at once. I give winners 48 hours to email me their info.. After that I have the right to choose another winner. If after 2 winners for the same product are picked and announced, and then no one responds within the 48 hour periods, then I reserve the right to not run the giveaway again, or to send the item to someone who I know needs it, or to a charity as a donation.
Reach of posts : All posts are Tweeted on Twitter, at least 3 times, and also are put on FB on 2 pages (at least). (Stats Below)
GIFT GUIDE – I run an all year round Gift Guide on my blog. This is because just doing one for a particular holiday just isn’t enough! Kids have birthday parties, people have weddings, anniversaries, all kinds of events all year long, so I like to have a place all year with new and great products that I will include in my Gift Guide. There will be no charge to be featured in my Gift Guide as long as you send a full size product for me to review, AND at least 1 for me to use as a giveaway.
If you cannot give one for a giveaway, but still want to be included in our Gift Guide, then I will require a Fee of $30.
Website Review – $50-$150 – depending upon the depth of the review. – We can discuss and negotiate a price.

Full Sized Products are required for reviews (in order to use the product LONG ENOUGH to insure a fair and honest review).
Review items WILL NOT BE RETURNED
We book our reviews approximately 2-3 months in advance (unless otherwise agreed upon).
Shipping costs of review products and giveaways are the responsibility of the sponsor.
I will not be responsible for lost or broken items sent to myself or winners, It will be up to the individual company to replace (or not) the items.
*We also have an Expert Panel (see “about us” page) that help us with reviews*
When asking for a review, please make sure to let us know which reviewer you would like to do the review. Or if you would like a child to review the item ie: toys we have different aged children available to preform reviews. We also have Bella (Chihuahua) our dog reviewer, and we have Simba, Bobby Head, and Mr. Gray for Kitty reviews. We also have some other animals (larger dogs) for pet reviews, JUST ASK
