Is Your Blog a Good Fit for Product Reviews?

by Susan

Do you want to review products or run giveaways on your blog?

Well, Julie Marsh has some trade secrets for you. Julie, from The Mom Slant, Mother Goose Mouse and Cool Mom Picks, is one of the moms behind the Parent Bloggers Network.

During the Mom 2.0 Summit 2009, she revealed to Janice what companies are looking for when selecting bloggers to send products for review.

You may notice on the PBN site that they are not currently accepting applications. But Julie updated me today… she says:

We are restructuring this summer – no review campaigns/Blog Blasts – but we are continuing to do one-off blogger outreach. So please do sign up for our mailing list – we’ll be in touch when there’s something happening!

So, are you planning to come to the Mom 2.0 Summit Feb 18-21, 2010? Jan and I will be there!
