QUICKIE Version for Reviews, Article Submissions, and More…
- I generally do not accept guest posts or articles. It is MY “Secret Diary” after all… if other people started writing in it, I’d have to rename my blog to “Check Out Who’s Entered Ninja Mom’s Secret Places” and that’s incredibly inappropriate.
- I cannot offer free feedback to startups or ask my audience to complete market surveys. I don’t even like doing market surveys.
- I am not interested in SEO or related services.
- Do not add my email address to your email list without my permission. << THIS is the granddaddy of all marketing NO-NOs. Just don’t.
DETAILED Version for Reviews, Article Submissions, and More…
Dear Carmen Submissions: Please use the contact form below. Please be clear in what you ask and let me know if you would like your real name or an “alias” included in your post. If your question is chosen, I will let you know by email 24-48 hours before publication.
Product & Service Review Requests: Please use the form below to submit your request. I’ll get back to you if I feel that your product or service is a great fit for my audience.
To have your products or services reviewed on my blog, a non-returnable sample must be provided in order to give readers an accurate and honest review. I will not do a review based on photos and descriptions on websites and documents. Reviews are free of charge. They will feature detailed usage by myself and/or my family and typically include:
- Digital Photos and/or Video
- Company profile
- Keyword anchored links
- Purchasing information
Guest Post & Articles: Although I have participated in guest post-swaps with select bloggers, this is far and few. I generally DO NOT accept guest posts or articles.
Sponsorship Inquiries: Thank you for your interest in working with me! I enjoy partnering with high-quality brands. Sponsored posts include detailed write-up, photography, video, and giveaways. Please contact me for my rates if your brand is a great fit. Inquiries about products I am unlikely to use or irrelevant to my readers will go unanswered.
What’s relevant to my readers? I blog about being a single mom, parenting, homeschooling, self-respect, and living life full out… I have an advice column where I answer questions about parenting, relationships, and life after divorce… and I post reviews for beauty products, entertainment, stuff for the home, and whatever else sent my way that I find worth thoroughly checkin out.
PR Inquiries, and Everything Else: Thank you for your interest. You will hear back from me only if I’m genuinely interested in your product/message. I wish I could respond to everyone, but mommy-ing, running a business, teaching, & everyday responsibilities have taught me to be very selective in where I invest my time.
