Thanks. I will check them out
I started with just writing reviews of products I liked and enjoyed - nothing provided to me by a company, just what I would recommend to other moms. I also reviewed local family events and businesses. As I got established, I had companies start approaching me about reviews and giveaways. My blog is not exclusively reviews, but I have had the opportunity to review some great products just by consistently blogging and working on keeping up the quality of my blog. These days I rarely seek out reviews on my own, but still have several come to me weekly. My blog also has a somewhat local focus, which allows me to review events and products near me. For example, I get to attend a live children's show in my city next week because I promoted it on my blog.
Best of luck to you!
