I’m Stacy, and my blog is Stacy Uncorked (formerly Stacy’s Random Thoughts). I started blogging in September 2008 as an easy way to keep my far-away friends and family updated on the antics of the Princess Nagger. I expanded into doing reviews and giveaways as well, because I like to keep things fun.

For more information about who I am, check out my recently updated About Me page.



Review Policy

I love giving my opinions on a variety of things for moms, families and kids. My blog is dedicated to providing thorough and honest reviews of those items. I am always on the lookout for new and innovative products to review that are designed to make life a little easier, more interesting and definitely more fun.

I welcome all kinds of products, but have a special interest in:

  • Products for moms including jewelry, handbags, totes, beauty items, household decor / accessories, small and large appliances, laundry products, cooking and baking products, clothing, shoes, organizational tools, cleaning products, etc.
  • Electronic items including cameras, camcorders, printers, video equipment, cell phones, laptops, televisions, sound systems, MP3 players, gadgets
  • Anything related to video gaming including systems, components and video games
  • DVD’s and related media
  • Games including board games, card games, video games, puzzles, etc.
  • Anything that is aimed at kids ages 6-10 – Princess Nagger is very good at assisting me in any of the items to test and is willing to be the center of a vlog review as well.

If you have a product you would like me to review, please send me an email. If you don’t hear from me within 24-48 hours, chances are your email may have been relocated by the notorious spam filters, so please do feel free to resend the message. I try to weed out the junk folder to make sure no ‘real’ email messages are getting discarded there, but sometimes I don’t get around to that for a couple of weeks.

If I would like to review your product, I will contact you as soon as possible with an address to send your product samples. I do require a sample for all reviews. The sample will not be returned, and you will be responsible for any shipping costs involved. (We also request that the company ship all prizes to the winner of any giveaways directly, if at all possible.)

I myself and my family will personally test out your product and I will write a detailed blog post about the product and our experience with it. The blog post will include:

  • Links to your website, product and purchasing information
  • Include photos of the product and my testing experience with it (if applicable)
  • Input from Princess Nagger if it’s kid-related

Offering a giveaway of your product increases reader interest and also creates a viral message through multiple blogs. Although it is optional, we encourage you to think about offering a giveaway in conjunction with the review.

Additional information:

Reviews will be posted within 30 days of receipt of product and a link to the review post will be sent to you.

I only accept reviews that are appropriate for my family and my readers.



Giveaway Policy


I am always looking for great sponsors who would like to get the word out about their business and its products by sponsoring a giveaway of one or more of their items.

Giveaways will be run for a period of 1-2 weeks for items less than $100 in value.

Giveaways will run for a period of three weeks for items over $100 in value.

Each giveaway will be featured in its own exclusive post.

If you would like to offer a gift certificate as a giveaway item, please make it an amount which will cover the entire purchase including shipping of at least one item in your shop. (If the amount is less than one item, it will be considered a discount coupon and will be offered in conjunction with a review).

All of my giveaways will require my readers to visit your website and / or blog in order to participate.

Shipping of giveaway prizes will be taken care of by your company. I will provide the winner’s shipping information to you upon completion of the giveaway. I ask that the item(s) be shipped within 3 weeks after close of giveaway

Giveaways will be open to all US residents.

Winners are chosen by random draw, unless otherwise specified.

If you would like a featured review of the giveaway item, I would be happy to do so. Please refer to Review Policy for details.



Advertising

I accept advertising in the form of 125 x 125 buttons or 120 x 240 banner on my front page. I do not accept advertising containing adult content, profanity, or anything that is not family-friendly. You must supply the button, or I will be willing to create one for you for an additional fee. I accept PayPal payments only. Please contact me for rates.



Contact

Please contact me using the Contact tab in the menu bar at the top of the page.



Sponsorship to Blogging Conferences


Throughout the year there are various excellent Blogging Conferences I would love to attend in order to expand my horizons beyond my computer screen, and meet like-minded people.  Especially if they’re a great brand that would fit well with me and my blog.  Having a sponsor or sponsors would help me justify leaving my family to fend for themselves while I have an opportunity to learn, promote your brand, and let’s face it – I’d get to have some quality ‘me’ time, too.
