PR and Advertising

We are not your typical family!  Due to the uniqueness of our family we are able to relate to a wide range of opinions as they regard to interest and ages. The ages of my cast are varied: boy (9), boy (20), husband (34), and me (46).  Recently, my mom (70+) has started working with us on the blog as well doing reviews from the eyes of the baby boomers! We think it is important that other consumers are able to read honest opinions about services and products before spending money in today’s economy. We believe in full disclosure and abide by the FTC guidelines.

Reviews and/or Giveaways

Products can not be returned and must be FULL-SIZE with a minimum value of $150 if there is no other compensation (unless agreed to prior to review). You receive a thorough review of your product, complete with photos and/or video of your product being used.  We have the unique option of offering the review with two points of view – his (James) and hers (Lisa) if requested.  We work together as a husband/wife team on many of our posts.  If a giveaway is desired the sponsor will be responsible for shipping item to the winner (unless agreed to prior to review). In return, all entries will require visiting sponsors website and commenting on a feature/or some other detail agreed upon prior to acceptance. The product post will be tweeted in twitter until giveaway is completed (typically 7 – 30 days).

We will not review X-Rated Adult Material, although my husband will be disappointed.

Sponsored Posts

We do accept sponsored posts and guest posts for a fee and only if the content is relevant to our readers.  These posts are always clearly marked as sponsored or otherwise.  If there is a request to change the post in any way after 15 days of being posted we reserve the right to charge a $15 service fee for each link change.
