Second of all my audience isn't just the people who comment here. My grandmother reads this site, as do two of my aunts, my 16 year old male cousin and my mother's entire office (Hi, Dr. P!) Now, really, some of the ads that have been requested of me to put up on my site are just not family friendly. Others are for sites that are just pure crap (seriously one was for a web design site and seriously I could have designed their website better than they did). Some emails I have received didn't even say what the product was (yeah, cause I am just going to blindly agree).
I also will not do solicited reviews. I know that there is money to be made here (or at least a product to be had), but I don't feel that if I have been given money or the actual product that I could be unbiased. If I didn't like the product I would be feel compelled to lie or stretch the truth in favor of the product. I think my readers deserve more than that. I have in the past done reviews of products, but they were completely unsolicited. I didn't receive anything in return (hell, I don't even know if the companies know I exist).
I did one for Sol-U-Mel. I have a link at the bottom of my page for Badass Designs (owned by Badass Geek), who designed my site. I love Mama Dawg's etsy shop (for all your jewelry and lanyard needs). I also won a beautiful photograph from my buddy Michelle, who has her own photography shop as well.
That being said. I WILL NOT endorse a product that I haven't myself used or don't think is absolutely fabulous. I will not take money or a product in exchange for a review. Don't junk up my email trying to get me to hawk your goods. It won't happen. It is a waste of my time and your time.
