PR, Disclosures and Fine Print

Thank you for visiting Adventures with Jude.  I'm Meg, mom of 5, all with special needs.  Three are homeschooled (grades 1, 4 and 10), with one in a private school setting (grade 7).   In 2016,  our first homeschooler graduated from 12th grade.  We enjoy product reviews of a variety of things - homeschool and supplementary curricula, books, and household helps.  I enjoy winning things, so I like to share the love and do giveaways when possible!

This is my personal blog.  While my son does write the Luke's American Adventures series,  I am the Momma,  which means I am the Editor-in-Chief and all posts are ultimately approved by me.   We all decide together what products to review,  especially if the children's input is required. I receive products for review in exchange for my honest opinion of the products, and describe how they work (or do not work) in our home.   I will always be respectful of a vendor's product, but if it doesn't work for us, I will share this  I try to write from the perspective of "If I was paying for this, what would I want to know?"  Questions I try to answer in a product review post include (but are not limited to): 

  • What would I have wanted to know before I purchased this? 
  • What would I have been happy (or unhappy) with once I had purchased and started using it, and would I have felt I got a good value, or would I have felt annoyed that I had wasted money?  
  • How does this work with a special needs student? Does it work "as is" for our needs, or does it need adjusting? Are the adjustments minor or significant, and do they fundamentally change the program?
 While I do not receive monetary compensation for reviews, I do accept and keep the products that were reviewed.  Programs we really love often continue to be used in our homeschool, and/or the next levels purchased for other students.  

 If you are requesting a review of an online or subscription service, such as a computer-driven math program, magazine, or other product with a monthly subscription, I will not review it for less than the equivalent of a 6 month subscription.   Other than a stand-alone novel, I generally do not write reviews unless I have used the product for at least a full calendar month (preferably six weeks) and have had the opportunity to really work with it.  As much as I love doing reviews, I reserve the right to accept or decline based on how they align to our family's beliefs, needs, and schedule.

Giveaways are a great way to advertise your product or curriculum. For each giveaway I do, I will devote one blog post to your product and promote it on all of my social media outlets -- Facebook, Twitter,  Pinterest, and Google+. To do a giveaway, I require a product to review for myself (again, with a 4-6 week review period) and a product to give away.  Unless it is a book, the product should be worth at least $15.  

I do accept sponsorships for posts.  Sponsorship fees are available upon request, and are dependent on the author (myself or sponsor-provided) and length of the post.   

I will write guest blog posts if your blog is of a similar genre as mine (homeschooling, family- friendly, etc.).  I will post an excerpt on my blog on the same day as the guest post is released, with a link to your blog, as well as promote the posts on all my social media outlets (see above).  

I  am an independent stylist for Lilla Rose.  All links for any Lilla Rose products go to my consultant page, http://www.lillarose.biz/StrawberryPrincess/.  I receive a commission for any product that is purchased through this link. I also am an affiliate for several curriculum-related programs.  I will only recommend programs that I have used in the past/currently use and feel they are a valuable addition to a homeschool program.  Links to all the companies I am an affiliate for can be found at the top of my Friends and Affiliates page. Additional links to these products and companies may be included in contextual post settings as well.  Please note: ALL sponsored links will be HTML coded as "no-follow" links.

If you are interested in having Adventures with Jude review your products,  host a giveaway,  or provide a guest post, please email me - meg (at) adventureswithjude (dot) com. I will return contact  within 5 business days.
