Post-It paper winner is Wendi!

A couple of you asked how I get on lists to review or giveaway items and I really don't have an answer for you! These companies have found my blog through web searches and have contacted me to review or giveaway their products. The only giveaway I can remember soliciting was the Land's End gift card a couple of summers ago.

I presume that they are looking for people who blog about certain topics with a certain size of audience and then they start contacting them? Once I had done a few - I got more. I get lots and lots of PR e-mails now and only choose to highlight a few that I think you would be interested in or that I am interested in.

Sorry that is not much help! If you have more info on how to get on a review list - please discuss in the comments!

I am so excited!!! I can't wait to use them to whip up some thank you cards or Christmas gift tags. Thanks Monica! said...

When we were posting on, I contacted different companies who owned the products I wanted to review, especially books, and they almost always sent me free stuff to give away!

So I recommend just asking the company. Also, small companies tend to be more generous than the larger ones, so that's who I stuck with :)
