Sponsor Information

Thanks so much for your interest in partnering with Homeschool Creations and having your product featured/reviewed! You probably would like to learn a little more about me and my site before deciding if Homeschool Creations is a blog you'd like to partner with.

A Few Details
  • Blog Beginnings ~ Homeschool Creations began on December 18, 2007 as a means for me to track the things we were doing during our school time with our children. I already had another blog in place, No Ordinary Moments, for general family fun, but my homeschool blog quickly grew as I began writing curriculum review and getting to know other moms through blogging.
  • Primary Focus of Homeschool Creations: Currently I share about our geography studies, toddler and preschool ideas, Bible printables, and also various curriculum resources for families.

Homeschool Creations is written only by myself ~ Jolanthe Erb. I also write No Ordinary Moments, co-manage Totally Tots and occasionally write for Heart of the Matter Online.

If you are interested in partnering with my blog, please contact me to discuss any of the following options further:

Reviews and/or Giveaway
  • Having your product reviewed. Our family is always willing to try new products and I write a detailed review on the product. I let my readers know about the product, how the product worked in our family, and my recommendations on the product. I always strive to give my HONEST opinion on a product. If I have any problems, I always contact that company first to resolve any issues.
  • Hosting a giveaway. I am always open to hosting a giveaway of your product for my readers.
  • Giveaways should be for something that I have used personally. I am not comfortable hosting a giveaway for something that I do not have personal experience with and cannot recommend myself. As fun as giveaways are, I have created a relationship with my readers and will only recommend/giveaway items that will benefit them.
  • Review items should be sent prior to a giveaway event. I will happily write a review of products that I receive for reviews and giveaways, but need to have sufficient time to use the product myself and with my family. Whenever possible, I try to include pictures of our personal use of the product.
  • Giveaway items should be shipped directly to the winners. To help lessen the cost of shipping items twice, giveaway sponsors are responsible for shipping items to the winners. I will gather all information prior to shipping and put the winner in contact with the sponsor.
Additional Exposure for Giveaways

I write for several other blogs and depending on the product that I am sent, they may be cross-referenced on those blogs. No Ordinary Moments is a site where I frequently share items that we are using in our household {cooking, organizing, books, family items, etc...}. The giveaways I host:
  • May require readers to visit your site and answer a specific question in order to enter the giveaway. This will increase traffic to your site as well as ensure entrants are reading and learning about your product.
  • Will be promoted via Twitter and Facebook.
  • May include a special logo button that others can post on their sites/blogs to help spread the word about the giveaway.
  • May include pictures of our family using your product. My readers enjoy seeing the product as we used it and it helps them know I am sincere about the product.
  • Will only include products that I truly feel are beneficial to my readers. If it is a product that I can't stand behind, I will not promote it.
  • Will include direct links to your blog along with logo buttons from your company. Feature giveaways will include logos in my sidebar as well that link to your site.
  • Will be listed in the Treats 4 Your Tot feature on Totally Tots if it is Tot-friendly.
