PR Guidelines

If you have a product or service you would like to submit for potential review on This Side Of Crunchy, I would love to hear from you! I can help bring visibility to your product – do a review, host a giveaway or suggest a project we can work on together!

If you are interested in an honest product review or would like to sponsor a giveaway please contact me at  I am interested in all types of products and books for adults and children, but specifically products that coincide with breastfeeding and cloth diapering.  I love to find, receive and share new products and great companies I believe in with my readers!

Please read the guidelines listed below and contact me if you have any questions. I’d be more than happy to consider your proposal.

Review Guidelines

I will write an honest, clear review of the product(s) you have provided. Topics covered in my review may include but are not limited to:

– A description of the product and the company
– Links to product and company website
– My experience with the product, positive or negative
– My opinions on the product
– Quality
– Price
– My experience with your company
– Photos or video, either my own or those provided by your company
– Submission of the review to several networking sites and forums.

All products submitted MUST be appropriate for a family friendly website.

Please be aware that I CANNOT review items based solely on photos, brochures, or websites — I actually have to use the products I review in order to give our readers our honest, thoughtful opinion. A sample MUST be provided. Products supplied to me for the review must be full size, and will become the property of This Side Of Crunchy. Personalized items must be personalized for me. Please keep in mind that product samples will not be returned, and the submission of a sample does not ensure a positive review.
