I must sound like a broken record to you when I say how much I enjoy doing product reviews on Dandy Giveaway.  I'm going to brag a little and report that the website's pageviews have increased by 400% since I joined the team in September!  The two other LDS women, Tara and Heather Ann, are such a pleasure to with, and though we've never met, we are such good friends! 

We've jumped to over 2,000 followers in just a few months, and its so exciting to be able to review better and more expensive products as our stats improve.  (We're talking $135 carseat sets and $140 pajamas) and I like to think companies like working with me because of all the fun pictures I include!  SO glad to have a nice camera and two cute models around the house! 

Not to mention being able to receive some beautiful clothes!!  (That lace skirt is sold for $92, and the chambray dress $105! What?!)  Jason gets a big pat on the back for being my photographer!  I love you for all your help, lovie!

I think the boys are having fun with it too :) They get to try out all sorts of fun toys and I love that we've been able to make Christmas and birthdays practically expense-free!  Add to that, being able to review functional household items like laundry detergent, vitamins, shower curtains, cleaning products, etc. and I've really been able to cut back on our everyday purchases.

As a contributor on Tara's site, I send out inquiries and emails to companies asking to review their products and offer giveaway items.  My response rate started out something like 1 in 40, and now, almost 1 in 8 companies I email will respond, willing and excited to work with me and I'm even getting requests from companies I didn't email at all.  I only hope our success continues!  Do me a favor and go enter to win something!

That's awesome! What we're really wondering is, "how can I get in on this gig?" ;)

Haha, honestly, just start asking! Tell companies how many followers and unique visitors you get, (because you already have a super successful and adorable blog!) and see what they will offer! Etsy sellers are a great place to start, though there are rules about how you can contact them--meaning it has to be through email or facebook and not through Etsy directly. Good luck!!

You should totally be a model, Camille! All those pictures of you in those adorable dresses are fantastic. You definitely know how to rock it! :)
