Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)

Product Reviews

~There is never a fee for product reviews.

~ I do need a product to review: as myself, a member of my family, or someone in my circle will actually use your product in order to give a fair and honest review. Opinions are only formed with real and tangible items, not website pictures.

~ Upon completing my review obligation the review item will then be used in the manner I see fit. I do not review for the sake of profitable gain; I believe that unneeded items should be used for the greater good and may donate or gift the item to a local charity or other persons outside of my home. Please be assured that items are not sold or used in an irresponsible manner.

~I will not be responsible for any shipping costs. 

~I will use the review product to form an accurate, detailed and honest review. Should I feel your product does not meet my or my readers expectations I will contact you. In order for postings to maintain honest and unpersuaded I cannot send reviews to you prior to posting.

~ I reserve the right to post negative reviews on my blog and will inform you before article goes live. At which point efforts will be made in order to find a positive solution for both of us. If no solution is reached I will post my review.

~Please allow 3-6 weeks (depending upon the product type) at the most for me to completely review your product and write the review. 

~All product reviews will post or be linked to, Twitter, Facebook and Google Plus. As well as any of the giveaway blog link ups that I am participating in at that time.

~ Once I have completed and posted my review I will send you a link. The only corrections I will make are typographical errors, follow back links, and keyword terms.

~ I under no circumstance will return review samples with the exception of defective items and then the sponsor will pay all shipping fees.


I prefer (but don’t require) to give a review that allows me to offer my readers (prizes) giveaways, if you would also like a giveaway with your review please let me know.

I do not publicly post a winner's list, all winners are notified via email and then forwarded to the appropriate giveaway sponsor. For the status of a specific giveaway inquiries may be made in writing and sent to

I email all winners, they have 48 hours to respond. If there is no response I draw a new winner,  I use to select winners.

I do my best to operate on an honor system and ask the same of my sponsors and readers. I have no way of knowing your online activities but request that if you win a duplicate item from another blog in one of my sponsored giveaways I ask that you give someone else a chance and kindly decline the prize. Share the wealth so that we may all continue to enjoy the benefits of blog sponsored giveaways.

In conjunction with my zero shipping cost legal disclosure it is my policy that all prizes for winners be sent directly from sponsor. As part of my review agreement the sponsor agrees to ship product/prize directly to the winner. I will provide you (the sponsor) with the winners information. I ask that unless otherwise agreed upon that you send the product (prize) directly to the winner(s) within 2-3 weeks.

I hold no liability for winnings that are lost, stolen or defective. Prizing items are the sole responsibility of the giveaway sponsor.
