Advertising & Reviews

Advertising: I love my advertisers. They keep this site running. Advertising with Jersey Kids is separate from reviews and doesn’t guarantee a review of that product or place. I will consider a giveaway in conjunction with advertising, and it will be disclosed as such. If you’re an advertiser, please contact me at blog (at) for rates and viewer stats. Or just make me an offer I can’t refuse.

Product Reviews: I review books, travel gear, and anything that seems to fit in with the website or my audience. I will not guarantee a review if you send me your product, but I won’t agree to receive a product unless I’m interested in reviewing it.

Review Policies: If I hate something, I’ll post about it. Some websites only print positive reviews about happy travel and products. That’s not me. If something wasn’t worth it, I’ll tell my readers.

Paid Reviews: I’ll only do paid reviews with disclosures, and I will share likes and dislikes.

Giveaways: I’ll happily consider giveaways of quality products, hotel stays, memberships and admission passes for readers, but I do them very rarely.

Travel Policies: I’m a professional travel writer. My work for national magazines, newspapers, websites and blogs keeps me financially solvent. I usually pay for my own travel. When I get media or comped rates for hotels, attractions or shows, I do not guarantee a review (let alone a positive review). I tend to look for the best deals out there and I’ll share those with you. I will disclose if I received comped or discounted tickets.
