This is what I do also, I have gotten great results! Many companies surprisingly have bloggers outreach programs and have forms that you can complete on their website to review their products. If you have any questions, I am willing help anyone. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Email, Email, Email! Thats all I can say.
It's hard starting out and getting products to review, and like the others said some bloggers won't give up their resorces. I have joined a few groups on facebook that use to share information but anymore its all about following each other, post your giveaways and sign up to guest blog other bloggers giveaways, which is what I do in between trying to get my own products to gain followers.I put up a list of websites to go to on my blog http://restlesmamainmi.blogspot.com/. I also have sent out a bunch of emails to compaines and still haven;t heard back from some of them. I joined US Family Guide, They're great. You sign up with them and they post your blog and get companies to contact you .You will also get get discounts on events. They pair you up with the closest city near you. I also use Drive in Google and make a document of a list I sent out to companies with all my info like dates, email , company name and contact person. I just send out emails to companies I want to review products for. Some will respond back to say they'll send your info off to a marketing person or they will tell you not at this time but they will keep you in mind.
