I gave away several of my own books or things I had gotten for free in the beginning. Then I started with book reviews/giveaways because there are a number of places that are willing to send books for reviews. Eventually, companies started contacting me themselves.

ok, but how do you make money with those giveaways?

I am totally new on this, had never done any giveaways or reviewed any product, how do I start?

Apryl: I got several reviews and I my blog is under a year old and I only started reviewing products in the past few months or so. I started out reviewing books...which I still do. Thomas Nelson has a blogger program and so does Revell and Tyndale.

Here are a few places I contacted directly:

Holey Donuts
Mixes from the Heartland
So Smart (baby and toddlers dvds)
Snorg Tees

I just simply used the contact form or contact email address on the websites. I said I was a mom blogger and interested in reviewing their product. Very short email..about 5 sentences. I also gave my blog address. Holey Donuts and Snorg Tees are VERY receptive to blogger reviews AND the products are great!

That is why I want to do it. I love free things. My blog is newer though. What do you recommend I do to help me with my chances?

I'm new to the game but I do as Stacie does. I would not want to be responsible for shipping out a giveaway..only due to paying for the shipping. :) I have only done 2 giveaways and I have another in the works. None of the companies expected me to ship out the product. I just inform them of the winner. I did request a giveway book from a book review I did...they sent me both books and I had to send that out. That's not a big deal. But I really don't want the hassle.

I also never had to pay for a product or shipping or handling. All of it is completely it should be. Having a blogger do a review is a great way for a company to advertise and much cheaper than many other forms of advertising.

Great info, thanks!

Do you usually get a freebie when you review a product? I do Mam Buzz revies and they send me the product to keep, but no giveaways. How does it usually work?

I thought about putting a PR friendly graphic but I have not done it yet. I have two blogs and one is called Mean Mama Reviews....I think that doesn't need it. However, my main blog had more followers and has page maybe I should for that one.

Ask any pregnant woman and she will tell you that now she’s expecting what once smelled delicious  - like roasting coffee beans for example, has suddenly become the one smell that induces an overwhelming feeling of nausea. For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive with incredible detection ability, in fact increased smell sensitivity can save lives. Just ask your local gas company – pregnant…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
