Living Outside the Stacks is a PR friendly blog, meaning that I will work with your company if you have an idea or product you’d like for me to review.
I review all types of products that are family friendly. I reserve the right to refuse any product that I feel is not a good fit for my site. My readers include college students, library and information professionals, wives and mothers ~ I would like for products to be geared towards this demographic.
Book and/or Product Reviews: I ask that you send the product you would like for me to review to me along with a product description and any photographs or links that you would like for me to use. The item(s) will not be returned.
All product reviews will be posted on this blog. I will also provide a link to the review from my side bar on the relevant page (product review or book review). Please allow 2 weeks for me to adequately review your product. If you would like to know when the review has been posted, please provide appropriate contact information.
Review with Giveaway: Giveaways are a great way for you to promote your product and I would be more than happy to help with product promotion. However, I will only accept products that I feel are appropriate for my blog and my readers. For a mandatory method of entry for a giveaway, I will instruct readers to visit your site then return to Living Outside the Stacks and leave a comment. I will promote your give away across multiple social networks such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. I will encourage my readers to do the same.
A second item (or more if there are multiple winners) will be offered to any winner(s) of contests at Living Outside the Stacks. The giveaway item will be kept by you and shipped directly to the winner(s). The giveaway item can be the same as the reviewed product, a different item or a gift certificate. I ask that you ship the giveaway to the winner within 2 weeks of the conclusion of the contest.
This disclosure policy is valid from 11 October 2009.
This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me; all opinions are my own. I will review any and all products with the utmost honesty. I believe my readers are looking for true and honest opinions about how a product works. I will not be mean or unfair, but if I do not like something, I will state why the product did not work for me.
In accordance with guidelines established by the FTC, I will let my readers know that I received the reviewed product free in exchange for a review.
If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to ask!
