Friday Favorites/ALOHA! ~ Reviews on Blogs?

MY FRIDAY FAVORITES ~ **if you're here for Aloha Friday and don't care about my favs of the week scroll on down**

What a week! Actually, it was pretty uneventful for me. Jayden started 2nd Grade.... that gets its own post in its own, but the same day he also started soccer.

Ella has officially started her terrible 2 tantrums today. I in no way paid any mind to them and completely ignored them... hopefully she gets the hint that a) she won't get her way and b) she'll get no attention from it.

My son actually brought me a shook up soda... I can't believe he actually did this.  

HUGE accomplishment for us.... Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday (and unfortunately we missed tonight) we had family scripture reading. I'm trying really hard on structurizing my evenings in this house from the time Jayden gets out of school to the time they go to bed. The past 2 nights are complete successes on both kids in bed by 9pm! Jayden hasn't even been getting up to sneak down for water. I need this time. Gino and I need this time too. It's nice that when he gets home from work it will just be us.... no kids!

I've talked about Katie and Ryan on my blog, and I just wanted to say that it sounds like she's getting better every day, however, I know her heart is still aching for the loss of her husband. Please keep her and everyone who was touched by Ryan in your prayers for the healing of their hearts.

My friend Anne started a great new blog w/her friend. They post posts that moms and housewives can really use in their daily lives. Delicious recipes, sewing patterns, tips that we can all use. It's called {A Place to Bloom} they chose such a beautiful name for it! It's definitely worth the checking out!!

This week I discovered that I have been losing out on THOUSANDS of dollars. I have never been the bargain shopper, never paid any mind to coupons, and I'm actually sickened by it. {My Frugal Adventures} turned me on to this new adventure in my life and I am now proud to say that I AM A COUPON JUNKIE! And I'm PROUD OF IT!
OKAY! Now for {Aloha Friday}!

How do you go about doing reviews on your blog? This is something I really interested in doing, but don't know how to start. This is something I definitely want to get into. I have done reviews for people I know... never really just a random person.

I do precious few reviews because I prefer not to. You can contact a company via email and request hosting a giveaway.

I love doing reviews and giveaway. I have a few going on right now, even. I get good response from approaching companies directly. I choose companies that fit my family.

Good luck and have fun!

Write companies whose products you are already using and love. Offer to do a review and/or giveaway. I've done a few. They are very time consuming to keep up with.

I have always been contacted by companies or people to do reviews. I also sign up with review sites. There are many of them out there.

One of the best ways to start is to begin reviewing items that you buy and love. Then you can show these to other people if/when you contact them for review/giveaway opportunities. Good luck.

I get contacted to do most of my reviews. I would recommend knowing your blog stats before contacting anyone. We can talk more if you like. :)

Since I started my blog I've done book reviews for each book I read (a lot!), and lately I've started posting reviews for products I use. One product, LilyPadz, I liked but wanted to get a new set to do a review for. I contacted the company through their website and offered to do a review if they'd be willing to send me a new set. It seemed fair to me. They were happy to comply, since they said word of mouth is the best promotion they get.

I have asked for a few reviews and been emailed by a few companies to do reviews. I love them and would love to do more. Please share with me what you find out :)
