PR Policy

Updated 7/1/10

Thank you for your interest in partnering with Goodie Goodie Gumdrops as part of your social media campaign! I hope you'll find that this blog is the perfect fit for your product, brand or service.

To greater assist you with your decision, please read the following terms and conditions:

1.) Goodie Goodie Gumdrops is a family-friendly blog. I will consider all pitches that fall into this category. If I do not feel a product or service is a good fit for my blog, I retain the right to respectfully decline a review and/or giveaway.

2.) Reviews and giveaways can be a wonderful, inexpensive way to build buzz about a brand. At Goodie Goodie Gumdrops, reviews and giveaways are always free of charge. The quantity and giveaway item(s) are at the sole discretion of the sponsor. Mandatory giveaway entries may include visiting your site and choosing a favorite item, following a blog, Twitter or Facebook account, or subscribing to a newsletter. Of course, I am always open to new, creative solutions!

3.) I will consider posting company overviews (no review or giveaway) at no charge, as long as discount codes are provided for my readers. However, reviews and giveaways will receive higher priority.

4.) Advertising space in the form of a 125x125 button or text link is available for a monthly fee. Please contact me for more details.

5.) I require a full-size sample of a product in order to provide a comprehensive, thorough analysis. Review items will NOT be returned unless I am somehow unable to fulfill my obligation.

6.) Reviews are generally posted within 2-3 weeks of receipt of the item (books, depending on length, may take up to 8 weeks). This allows me ample time to provide a thorough assessment of the product. If time is of the essence and you need a review posted by a tighter deadline, just let me know and we can work out an acceptable timeframe. I will email you a link to your review within 24-48 hours of posting so you can review it and alert me to any changes or errors that need to be corrected.

7.) It is not my practice to publish negative reviews. In the unlikely event that I am completely dissatisfied with an item, I will contact you privately to discuss how to resolve the matter.

8.) Giveaways generally run for 2-3 weeks before choosing a winner, although larger ticket items ($100+) may run for up to 4 weeks. Winners are chosen through a random number generator ( I contact all winners via email and give them 48 hours to respond with their shipping information before choosing another winner.

9.) Goodie Goodie Gumdrops will NOT ship giveaway prizes. Once a giveaway ends and a winner has been chosen and confirmed, I will email you with the winner's shipping information. I kindly request that all prizes be sent to the winner within 2-3 weeks of email confirmation.

If after reviewing these policies, you still feel like we would be a good match, please email me with the following information:
  • Your Name
  • Company Name
  • Website
  • Product to be reviewed/given away (if applicable)
  • Campaign deadline (if applicable)

I respond to almost all emails within 48 hours. A more detailed media kit containing monthly traffic stats is available upon request.

Thank you again for your interest and support!
