Who the heck are you? My name is Maria. I’m in my early 30s, married, and have a 8 year old daughter, a 4 year old son, and a 1-year old son (my first home birth.) I love gadgets, baking & organization. I enjoy exercising but I despise the treadmill. I need fresh air and nature!
I worked in the insurance industry before my kids were born, and hold several AICPCU-IIA designations. I’ve also been a Mary Kay consultant for 10 years!
I’ve been cloth diapering since 2009 and I love my fluff!
What is this blog about? Originally, it was about cloth diapers, but it’s about a lot more than that now.
Why did you start it? When I started writing, I never thought anyone other than my best friend (and maybe my Mom) would read it. I was going through a difficult time and really needed something to do, for myself. I started taking pictures and writing posts about the cloth diapers I was using and it grew from there!
Do you do giveaways? I love doing giveaways and I actively seek out companies and products I think my readers would be interested in. Just follow the instructions on the post to enter. I make one entry very easy because I don’t like confusing jump-through-the-hoops giveaways! You do not have to follow my blog, Facebook, Twitter etc. to enter. Of course, if you like my content, please do subscribe! I offer additional entries, but they are all optional.
Where do you advertise your giveaways? See this post for a semi-complete (and always updated) list!
Do you get free stuff? I review both products I’ve purchased and products that are sent to me by a company. If items were given to me, I will clearly state that.
How do I know you’re not just saying you like stuff because you got it for free? I will always review products honestly, whether I bought it or it was given to me. I include the good, bad and ugly. Free or discounted products will never affect my review. I have heard people comment that they never see negative reviews from bloggers. If I receive a product that I just can’t say anything nice about (hasn’t happened yet) I would send it back to the company before I wrote a post that was entirely negative press. So, you will probably never see a post full of flaming dislike for a product!
How do I know you’re not just trying to sell me something? All affiliate links are on my affiliates page, and there are a few relevant affiliate ads on the main page. Some posts may contain affiliate links. If you decide to make a purchase through one of my affiliate links, thank you!!
How can I get on your blog roll? Just let me know you’d like to be listed! Sorry, I only add blogs I would read (like my readers’ blogs.) I won’t add junky spammish sites full of nothing but affiliate ads.
Do you sell ads? Any ads will be relevant, family friendly and as neat as possible. I want my blog to be quick to load, uncluttered and easy to read! In the end, more interest, traffic and yes, a little money made means a better blog with more and better reviews/giveaways for you!
Are you a cloth diaper expert? No way! I’m just another Mama who has been there and done that. I make mistakes more than I’d like to admit, so if you see something incorrect, please point it out to me. Just be nice please.
What if I saw a product I was interested in you reviewing? Just contact me, I may have already tried it. If I haven’t, I’ll make every effort to review it for you. Keep in mind that not all companies will provide products for me to review, and I have limited funds to purchase items myself!
How can I contact you? I love comments and questions! You can email me anytime at maria at change-diapers dot com
What are you going to do when your children are out of diapers? Will the blog be gone? I hope to remain involved in the cloth diapering community even after my children are out of diapers. I also plan to continue to review and write about other natural and earth friendly products.
I have a product I would like you to review, what do I do? Please see my PR Page for more info, then just get in touch with me. Even if you are a brand new work-at-home-mom, I would love to review or test for you.
