About Me

About the author: Maria wants to live in a world where cloth diapers are the norm and moms can make parenting choices without judgment. When she’s not chasing her 18, 14, and 11-year old kids around, you might find her checking out the latest gadgets, organizing something (again) or exercising in the fresh air.

What is this blog about? Originally, it was about cloth diapers, but now encompasses all things kids, motherhood & going green.

Why did you start it? Change-Diapers was born after I became frustrated spending quite literally years hunting for information on cloth diapers. I wanted to be a resource for people looking for true-to-life information, and to show what diapers really looked like. Not everyone lives near a cloth diaper retailer, and it can be surprising to get a diaper you’ve never seen in person!

Do you do giveaways? I do offer giveaways. Sometimes they are sponsored by a brand, other times they are self-sponsored. 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 have a privacy policy?  Are you going to sell my info?  I use your email address to contact you if you win a giveaway, to respond to a question you have, or to reply to a comment you made if you’ve made it available.  If you win a giveaway, I share your mailing address with the company.  If it’s a giveaway that I’ve sponsored but don’t have the prize in hand, your address may be shared with the company from whom I order your prize.  I do not sell or share email or mailing addresses otherwise.  I don’t send you spammy annoying emails telling you about blog posts, giveaways etc.  If you WANT email updates, you may sign up for them.

Please view my official Privacy Policy. (This is a PDF file)

If giveaway entries are collected via a Rafflecopter entry form, Rafflecopter’s Privacy Policy also applies.

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.  (Please note that I moved my disclosures to the beginning of my post in recent years. Older posts may have a disclosure at the end.)

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 and if so, you’ll see a disclosure at the beginning of the post. If you decide to make a purchase through one of my affiliate links, thank you!!

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

Do you have a Facebook and Twitter Page? Sure do!  Change-Diapers.com on Facebook and Change-Diapers.com on Twitter

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.
