Media Kit and Disclaimers for my Loyal Readers!

A Brief Overview of Saved By Grace:

Saved By Grace is a blog that was started with the intention of connecting to others about the newest products, recipes, Christian Living articles, health, beauty and everyday living.

I LOVE to do reviews! More and more consumers are turning to blog reviews of products before making a purchase and to find out about the newest items available on the market! Want a piece of the action? Talk to me! I love to work with awesome companies, large or small and do partnerships!

I Do Have a Review Policy:

In order to effectively do a review, I require a product be sent to me to review and use, and ideally a second product set aside for a giveaway for my readers. Your company would be given credit for sponsoring the giveaway, but I would handle all the details. I will set up the giveaway, pick a winner, contact the winner and upon discussion in SOME cases, ship the product out to the winner. Please be advised that I prefer that your company ships, though, it makes it easier on both of us

The review product will not be returned. Please note, I only accept full sized products. My readers expect me to fully test a product so I can give an honest and unbiased review and that is very important to me. While I will accept SOME samples,based on product type, most of the time, I require full size products. Please discuss before hand the size of the product you are sending as "sample" can mean different things to different folks.

Please forward me any information you would like included in the review. I would like to spotlight your product and company as accurately as possible, so any information you have about your company or product really helps me do so.

I give my 100% honest opinion.

Book Review Policy:

I review certain types of books. I do not, under any circumstance review novels or fiction. This is mainly because I do not read these types of books and do not enjoy them so I could not offer a fair review. I do however review the following types of books:

~Self help
~Medical/health related
~Christian living
~Home-Making related "help" books
~Cook Books

Most non-fiction I will consider.

I do have a 9 year old daugher here who DOES enjoy some types of YA fiction. Please pitch me and I will see if it is a good fit.

In order to review a book properly, I ask that you expect to wait 2-3 weeks for your review to be posted. This is because I review several books at a time and need to give my attention fairly to all of them.

Advertising Policy:

I also offer advertising in my sidebar for your business. Typically the cost is 10-20 dollars a month (depending on the size of the ad), with at least a 3 month commitment, paid in advance via paypal. You can send me a button or a small ad to use, or I can design one for you for an extra 10 dollars.

Sometimes advertisers want a larger ad and they want it more above the fold, for this, there are some extra fees. please message me for questions you have concerning this. Most of the time, I can accommodate your needs.

I also would be willing to do paid posts. Please write me for more info and to pitch your idea of a paid post to me.

Something new I would like to offer for advertisers is "Sponsored by" posts. In other words, for a period of time, all the posts I write would say "This post was brought to you by XYZ company" and a link would be added. This would be on every post for a period of time. I would love to discuss this advertising option with you if you are interested.
