About Mommy's Wish List:
Mommy's Wish List is a blog that is published daily, to a national subscriber list. This blog has been and continues to be featured in most major market media nationwide, as well as in dozens of smaller city newspapers, magazines and newsmedia websites, television affiliates, and brand websites. Mommy's Wish List has also contributed to and is a content partner for several national and local on-line sites. See the media page here for a complete listing.

Brand Journalism/Native Advertising/Sponsored Post Policies:
This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me. For questions about this blog, please contact Lea Ann (mommyswishlist at gmail dot com). Email is checked daily. If I feel your product, brand, or service is a fit for my blog, expect a reply back within 24-48 hours regarding my interest in reviewing your product, along with my shipping information for you to send the non-returnable item for review.

Please include any product information, pricing and web link info pertinent to a review. I can not review items that my family and I are unable to test, so please consider my content, style, and family dynamic when choosing Mommy's Wish List to review your product. I am college-educated mother to a first-grad boy and a high school boy and have a husband with two master's degrees and a public service job, who is always open and candid with anything I try out on him and our family. I also have a dog.

I will complete a fair and honest evaluation of your product, and a featured article will appear on Mommy's Wish List blog if it meets my standards for usability and quality. This is a great opportunity to spread the word about a new product or service, and take advantage of my 25 years of experience as an ad/promotional agency creative director. I currently work as a digital strategist so I will write to include long-tail SEO keywords as well, and promote the post on appropriate social media platforms. Please include any contact information in the event that I have any questions or problems with the product.

Once the review is published, it is published under the Wish List Mom Reviews label, and is delivered to the 6000+ email subscribers, to the 2900+ Facebook Mommy's Wish List Fan Page, to various communities that I belong to that display my RSS feed, and to my 5500+ followers on Twitter. If appropriate, your post will be promoted on Instagram, Pinterest, and G+ (for indexing).

Mommy's Wish List no longer hostesses giveaways. For past giveaway winners visit this page here.

If you have any questions or requests regarding my Review policies or would like to put together a brand journalism/native advertising (ie sponsored post) program, feel free to contact me at (mommyswishlist at gmail dot com) and I would be happy to work with you and your company to find a solution that would work for all parties involved.

Compensation Policy:
This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me. This blog does accept forms of cash advertising, sponsorships, or paid topic insertions. I will and do accept compensation in exchange for blogger appearances and event attendance. I will and do accept and keep free products, services, travel, event tickets, and other forms of compensation from companies and organizations. The compensation received will never influence the content, topics or posts made in this blog. I am sometimes compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. I sometimes use affiliate marketing links to products and/or services that I think would be beneficial to my readers, and that I would have blogged about regardless of possible compensation. Affiliated linked blog posts will most times but not always be identified as such.

Even though I receive compensation for some of my posts or advertisements, I always give my honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. If compensation or free product has been received for a post, it will be clearly disclosed in the post at the bottom and noted as a "sponsored by" or "hosted by" post as per FTC regulations. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely my own. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service will be provided by the brand so as to be verified by the manufacturer, provider or party in question.

This blog may contain content which might present a conflict of interest. This content may not always be identified, or be able to be identified to conflicting parties. I will only sign non-compete documents for periods of one month or less, and only within compensated blogging programs.

My Twitter and Facebook pages are an extension of my blog to which these policies apply.
