- The New Way For Advertisers To Get Their Products And Services Reviewed On

This is a sponsored review.

Over the past year I have written about many wedding related products and services. These have been totally unbiased reviews and even though in the most part I have applauded the topic I am writing about, I haven’t been shy to say some negative comments. Sometimes I will attend a wedding show and come across some really amazing ideas I want to share with you and equally sometimes I receive books and favors in the post that I am more than willing to review. This I believe works well with all the practical wedding advice and tips posts I also write.

That’s great if you are product or service I have actually had first hand experience of, but what if you are a wedding company that would like to appear on and really I don’t know you from Adam!

The answer is simple, it is a new site launched today called, run by Andy Hagens and Aaron Wall.

This new website allows advertisers to get their products or services reviewed by related web sites, and benefit from valuable exposure, feedback, and viral buzz. lists each blog an advertiser can have their product reviewed on with a rating out of five stars, this is determined by looking at its Alexa Rank, Technorati Rank, and an estimated number of RSS subscribers. is listed within the directory of blogs at, just search on the keyword “wedding” to find us. Currently has a rating of 2 stars, and as a consequence the cost to appear on the site is $60 ($30 is paid to and $30 for This way I’m not hiding anything, you can see exactly what I am being paid for the sponsored posts on the site.

For $60 you get the following:

1. You get great exposure on , typically it takes 2 -3 days for our posts to be indexed in Google. The rule and regulations at state that the post should be a minimum of 200 words. This to me seems low and I definitely like to write more and add photographs with permission.

2. An ethical review of your product or service to the best of my ability. Please have a look at my existing list of reviews to see the high standard of writing I maintain There will be no pressure for me to positive, though if the product or service looks great I will definitely say so.

3. I will end the post with the words “"This is a sponsored review. Please note that this post represents ethical and unbiased review” in so as there is no confusion as to whether I am writing the review out of the goodness of my heart or I am receiving cash for it.

This represents a great opportunity for wedding products and services, especially new ones, to receive immediate exposure in front of a very targetted audience.
