Many people are tired of annoying commercials and pop-ups all over the place, and are getting better at blocking and tuning out advertising. However, there are some good products and companies out there, and we believe that one of the best ways that recommendations travel is through “word of mouth” – and in this century, that includes social media sharing and blog posts. If something is worth it, people want to hear it from those they trust, and not from yet another clever advertising scheme. That is why we are committed to working exclusively with advertisers we feel comfortable with, for our own sake as well as that of our readers.
Not convinced? Here are a few more facts**..
- 81% of U.S. consumers trust advice and information from blogs.
- 77% of internet users read blogs.
- 61% of U.S. consumers have made a purchase based on a blog post.
- 70% of consumers learn about a company through articles rather than ads.

In addition, we aim to reach an international audience, which broadens our potential readership, and we have a large Pinterest following.
We welcome inquiries about display ads, sponsored content, and product reviews.
Display Ads – We offer the opportunity to purchase reasonably priced display ads (e.g. on our blog sidebar or elsewhere) to those who would like to reach out to our blog readers of various different backgrounds. To learn more about ad pricing packages, please drop us a message at the comment form below.
Sponsored Blog Content – We are willing to consider sponsored blog posts. However, please note that we will ONLY do so if we either already own products from your company, or receive complimentary products. Sponsored blog content will ALWAYS be appropriately credited, so that readers know that we are getting paid.. and we will ONLY allow sponsored blog content if it’s something that we like or are passionate about. A spokesperson should be someone who can get behind a product 100%.. and we are 100% honest about our likes and dislikes, so we cannot accept every offer for sponsored content. In addition, the sponsored content must NOT be written or proofread by the company, but rather we will write in a way that we feel is appropriate for our audience and site. To find out more, please contact us using the comment form below.
Product Reviews – We would be happy to consider your product(s) for a product review! I (Hannah) have previous experience writing reviews in return for complimentary products, as well as doing contests for readers in which winners could receive free products. Product reviews are an easy way to build brand-image while also getting truthful feedback (and our reviews will always be honest!). Like sponsored blog content, product reviews will ALWAYS be appropriately credited. In addition, reviews are limited to items which can be shipped to Japan (so please consider your international shipping costs!). We do consider reviews for digital items such as templates or printables as well. Specific products we might consider reviewing include family-centered goods, beauty items, housing goods, educational materials, clothing, books, and etc.
When we post reviews at the site, all product reviews will be appropriately cited, to make sure our readers understand our connection with your company. We also cannot guarantee a positive review, but we are happy to share our honest thoughts and feelings.
** Please note that reserve the right to refuse advertising of products or sites that may conflict with our values and belief system, and it is up to our personal discretion whether advertisers will be considered, and whether they can renew advertising space each time an ad contract expires. In addition, anyone who works with us by purchasing display ads, sponsoring content, or allowing us to review products agrees to indemnify and hold me/us harmless for anything I/we may post about it.
