One more thing, consider contributing to some of the online magazine type sites. I write for Type-A Mom and I have made some wonderful contacts there. They always have opportunities to review things and love people that contribute. You can be a writer and/or an editor. Right now, Type-A Mom is looking for Editors in the following categories:

Bed Rest, Mom Stages
Teens Moms (mothers of teens), Mom Stages
Family Vacations, Mom Topics
Housekeeping, Mom Topics
Military Moms, Mom Types
Mommy Bloggers, Mom Types
Single Moms, Mom Types
Teenage Moms (became a mother as a teen), Moms by Age

Writing here works well for several reasons. As a writer, you get to write for a site that has a huge following and gets a ton of traffic each month. Your posts are linked back to your blog. This is great to show companies when you are pitching your reviewing skills.

When you guys reply back to a company, are you answering any anticipated questions that they may have? I contact a lot of companies that I see on Twitter plus many of my favorite companies. Go to other peoples blog's and ask the companies who have sponsored their giveaways for a review/giveaway. I have a ton of success with this.

Also go to my blog and make certain that you are registered with every company under the This is How I Roll on the right side of the page. When I started, most of what I reviewed came from here and this is still an excellent source.

Consider putting the following in your response to any/every company:

# of Followers or Subscribers
# of Visitors per day/week/month
# of Twitter followers, especially if you found them on Twitter
Google rank, if applicable
Target readers or market of your blog
Why you think that the product or service would appeal to your readers
Why the product or service appeals to you
Link directly to your blog
Links to previous reviews that you have written
How you promote your blog
How you promote giveaways on your blog

While this is not what works for everyone, I put most of this information in every letter that I write.I really strive to make it as easy as possible for any company or person that I "pitch" to in order to let me do a review and giveaway. The more information the better. They want exposure for their item and I want to let them know how I can give it to them.

However, I am by no means an expert. That being said, I have yet to be turned down for a review and I have about 32-34 things to review right now sitting in my house and most include giveaways. I have been blogging for myself for only a little over a month and just got a Google PR of 2 so I am working hard but having a lot of fun.

Good luck!

Are you contacting the companies to review their product or are they contacting you? I have had a few companies contact me but I would like to increase my review postings.

I have a question....I keep receiving random e-mails from various people representing businesses with requests for me to put their widget on my blog. Does anyone else do this and do you charge to put their ad on your blog?
