Making Conections|Brand & Blogger Product Review Opportunities

Let’s face it, making the right brand connections as a (dare I say) “Mom Blogger” are key.  For a beginner blogger it can be difficult.  Most of the “big brands” that rely almost exclusively on bloggers for advertising, expect a lot of the blog itself.  As well as they should, this is what seperates the big & little fish. The beginner blogger can feel lost in Cyber World if they don’t have the numbers that “big brands” want.   What’s a newbie to do?  Network, network, network.  A lot of people dislike this “N” word.  Not me, I have made a livelyhood out of networking.  Mostly the social kind.  I believe that when you surround yourself around the types of bloggers you admire, amazing things can happen.  You make strong connections, you learn from what they are doing.

So whats a newbie to do?  Don’t give up, it doesn’t happen overnight.
•Join Brand & Blogger Product Review Opportunities Group.  It is a new group who’s primary goal is to connect bloggers and brands for review opportunities.
•Be active in Social Media, very active.  Build relationships with the people you look up to.
•Take yourself seriously.  If you don’t, you can’t expect anyone else to.

•Contact people you want to work with.  Ask them how they got their foot in the door. Would they be willing to contribute on your blog?

Blogging can be whatever expierience you want it to be.  Take a good hard look at the content you are putting out there.  Not every thought you have should be a blog post. (save that for Twitter)  Ask questions in your posts for maximum engagement. It shouldn’t be stressful. It should be a place that people want to visit. Readers and brands have to know you exist in order to get those numbers up. Do you have any networking tips to share?

Dry Idea Advanced Dry|Review & Giveaway|Sweepstakes with $1000 in prizes


As a Purex Insider I was chosen to put Dry Idea AdvancedDry to the ultimate test. I don’t sweat a lot so I decided to review this product during the heat wave that hit last week in New Jersey.

Not only was it a heat wave, this “tattoo family” braved the scorching temperature at Sixflags Great Adventure. I was a little scared to test my Dry Idea AdvanceDry under these extreme heat conditions. Anything for my readers!
