Have a product you'd like to see featured on living life one day at a time?

Interested in having your product or service reviewed by living life one day at a time? We're always looking for products or services for moms, dads, children, babies or the home to share with our readers.

Here at living life one day at a time, we love to review all types of products. We enjoy testing products that make our lives a little easier, safer, and more fun, and by posting the reviews here on the blog, we are able to share information about the products with others.

If you have a fun, fabulous, and useful product that you would like to see reviewed on living life one day at a time, we would love to hear from you!

Before you email me with a product pitch, please take a moment to familiarize yourself with my blog and my family. My husband and I hace two boys, ages 14 and 11, we have a dog and a cat, and several younger nieces and nephews. I only post reviews of products my family has personally tested.

Our goal here at living life one day at a time is to work closely with companies, PR reps, and business owners when reviewing their products, and in turn, getting the word out about those products.

Below are the guidelines and rules for the reviewing process. Please read them thoroughly before contacting us.

  1. In order for us to consider reviewing your product please send an email describing what you would like to have reviewed, include a link to your website, and we will reply to let you know if we are interested. If you have not heard from someone after a few days, feel free to contact us again. Sometimes things get filtered into spam and we never even see the email.

  2. All product reviews require a nonreturnable sample. All of the products reviewed on living life one day at a time have been personally tested by myself or another member of the family. We can't guarantee it will stay in the condition it was received in, especially where children are concerned. Please include your press kit via email. In addition, my receiving a product, even if I have asked you in an email to send me a sample, does not guarantee coverage on living life one day at a time.

  3. Once we have received the product you would like reviewed it usually takes anywhere from 2 weeks or more to get the review up. It depends solely on the amount of products that are currently waiting to be reviewed. Reviews are written on a first come basis, but there are always exceptions. If your product has been selected to have a video review - it will take longer (it takes time to edit and film the product in use). If you want to have a video review made be certain to arrange that with us prior to sending the sample for review.

  4. There is no charge for product reviews.

  5. If during the testing process we find that we are not satisfied with the product we will email you and explain the problems. We do not post negative reviews. If the problem cannot be resolved, we simply will not post the review.

  6. Giveaways and discount codes are a great opportunity to increase exposure about your product, book or site. Please consider submitting a sample or copy for a contest. I am a member of PRIZEY-Fetch and must adhere to their guidelines (contests must be free to enter, non-bloggers are always able to enter, and winners are always randomly drawn). However, I also submit my giveaways to PRIZEY and/or other contest listing sites as well, which increases the exposure for the sponsor.

  7. If you choose to sponsor a giveaway you must supply an additional product for the prize. We prefer that you ship it direct instead of sending us two products

  8. The specific requirements for entry into the contest are usually to comment on the giveaway post and to visit the sponsor’s site, if appropriate. If you have any additional requirements, we would be happy to consider them.

  9. To also help increase your exposure, any company which provides a product sample or book for review here will also receive a month’s advertising for free.
