I was recently contacted by a fashion site in California to do a product review on their clothing line. I am so excited! This is in an area I wanted to get really serious about. What an honor, I believe. I write for the examiner.com, Manchester plus-size section plus I have some other sites and blogs I write for, anyways,one of my articles hit the right spark for this company. They are going to send me an item from their line to check out. This is a high quality and some what pricey line. I can not wait to check out their product first hand. I did not know this site existed until I was contacted by a media relations employee. I am sure I probably am not the only one they contacted, but it still is cool. My husband is so excited. I had been out of the writing world by a personal experience that left me unable to concentrate on my first love, so after three years I am now able to get my mind set. I am trying to work my way back into full-time freelance work which I was able to do - with no other J.O.B. to keep me in the black. Wish me well! :)

Wow, congratulations! The next thing you know, Louis Vuitton will be calling you to write for them. I think you should write an article of your experience to encourage fellow bloggers and writers to continue to write. Sometimes when the right person sees the value of the article, good things will happen.

scheng1, wonderful idea. Why did I not think of that! Hey, great minds. lol! That would be wonderful if Louis Vuitton called me to write for them... oh, my, now my imagination is running wild. lol! My husband made a comment to the extent that this might be another way to go, product reviews. I used to write book reviews for authors and publishers like Penguin Press and others. So why not on products, right? Writing is writing, free stuff is free stuff and pay - oh, is pay.

Relax, relax, dont break open the eggs before they hatch! Some writers in AC are very good at product reviews. They can write ten or more articles on facial wash, pet food, bread, cakes, and whatever day to day items. But I think you can make more money writing about branded goods instead of mouth wash, car wash, potato chips, apple juice etc. Good luck with your writing! Buy me candies when you make a lot of money oh
