I comply with FaceBook Terms of Service. My readers must also comply.
I will not participate in any type of FaceBook album or “games” type giveaways.
FaceBook at no time has any type of affiliation with this site, it’s reviews or giveaways.
At this time My Crafty Life will accept sponsored posts. Please refer to all policies regarding this type of advertising.
Brand, Vendor or PR Firms:
Articles and Reviews written on blogs now go a lot further than advertising.
If you are interested in having your products reviewed on My Crafty Life please fill out this form as completely as possible. I get many requests so please be sure that your information is accurate and compelling, and your product is relevant to my blog. Please note: my blog is targeted to people who are interested in crafts, coupons, kids stuff, deals, product reviews, giveaways, health issues, green living, recycling and life in general.
Please refer to my Product Sample Return Policy below.
My Crafty Life Sponsorships
If you are company or brand, or a PR firm that represents one? I am currently accepting month-long (or longer) sponsorships of CraftyLife.net to prominently place your brand to my growing audience. I will work with you and/or your brand to place relevant ads, non-content and/or content mentions to give your products increased exposure.
I am also looking for Blog Conference sponsors. These unique venues are prime advertising opportunities with hundreds to thousands of bloggers exposed to your product. Social Media has opened up a much larger base of advertising. I, being a social media mom, can expose your product to a whole section of people that you otherwise may not reach. It can be a more personal reach. I have fans/followers/friends/family and a community who rely on my opinion and expertise in product reviews.
Right now I am looking for food and housewares type sponsorships to a handful of conferences/conventions.
Product Sample Return Policy:
Apart from the tiny amount of advertising revenue I receive from this blog, I receive no monetary compensation for a majority of my product reviews. (This does not include shoppers insights.) I do this solely for the benefit and enjoyment of my readers. To that end, my policy is that any samples that are sent to me, remain in my possession. There are some cases where I may make an exception to this policy, but for the most part, I stick to it.
It takes time (and a whole lot of energy) to write an well thought out review, I spend on average a few hours, up to days, writing it, plus the time it takes to take product pictures, uploading images and testing the product itself. Finding time to do this is extremely difficult at times being a Mom of 3, so the compensation I receive is frequently only in the form of keeping the product itself.
Product Review Policy:
*I will provide an honest, thoughtful review.
*I will write about both positives and negatives about product/website.
*I will give you the right to refusal of the posting of the review if I do find fault to your product/item, or if I find the product not relevant to my blog.
*If the sample must be returned, please ensure that there is ample time for me to review it AND provide return shipping. You must disclose UPFRONT that the product must be returned.
*I will always disclose why I am writing this review and/or where the product came from.
* I will NOT insert text into a previous review, ever
* I will do my best to provide a timely review (especially with new product/item launches), however some reviews may be set aside for later release or until the product is fully reviewed. I will communicate to you when the product will be reviewed and will, to my best effort, comply with deadlines I agree to. Understand that if I am working for free, family and paid obligations will always come first. I also have a full time job outside of this website.
According to Google guidelines, all promotions and advertising will require “no-follow” links. No exceptions will be made.
