Yes, Shelley is pretty awesome. Can I say I knew her first since she is part of friends following friends...who do get an extra entry on my giveaways.. just sayin' lol.

Richelle, is that a group on here or a website?

Thanks Shelley and Ethel. ;)

Don't take it personally if you get turned down. It doesn't mean there is something wrong with your blog. Some companies don't do blog reviews...some have too many requests..and some may only want certain stats. Even if some think your blog isn't a good fit..that isn't an insult. Just keep it up. Sign up at the The Product Review Place...they have a group where companies make pitches to the bloggers. I got about 3 reviews that way. When I respond to those I just tell them I came from the Product Review Place and that's all they need.

Stacie hit the nail on the head. Perseverance pays off. You can't take turn downs personally. You just move on and keep trying.

Thanks guys, I love to review stuff on my blog and was doing it before I realized it was actually a real blog thing. I just like to share with others things that I found I love. Holey Donuts must be an American thing, I've never heard of them or Thomas Nelson. I wonder if being Canadian makes it a little harder.
should I just send an email to the customer service dept on a website, or would you suggest emailing cs for a contact in pr?

I really recommend for those of you that have never done a product review or book review before to post several reviews of your own things on your blog. Almost any company is going to want to know that you know how to write a product review before they send you something to review. Just look at your book case and pick a book and review it. Even places like book companies give preference to people who have shown that they know how to review books. Sure you can request a copy from Thomas Nelson but if they only have 100 copies they will always give preference to bloggers who know (and can show) that they know what they're doing.

I agree, Richele you helped me a lot too. I am a truly beginner not you, LOL

Jennifer, I say that it doesn't hurt to try. The worst thing that can happen is they won't respond or they'll say no. Also, when you are contacting companies, let them know that you are scheduling giveaways for May/June. With some companies, you really do need to schedule in advance.
