A Brief Overview of Persevering Momma:
Persevering Momma is a blog that started out with the intention of connecting others with fugal living tips, the newest household products, special needs articles, health, tips, and everyday life. Persevering Momma was started by Ashley Pomykala as an outlet to the virtual world. As a disabled young woman she needed a place to connect with people and get her voice heard. Ashley is a 30-something woman dating the love of her life with whom she has been friends with for 10+ years, and they live with her mother-in-law, 2 loveable cats, and their 2 year old son. She enjoys spending time learning new things, reading, playing video games, spending time outside, and hiking when she is up to it, fishing, and in general loving life.
She LOVES to do reviews! More and more consumers are turning to blog reviews of products before making a purchase and to find out about the newest items available on the market! Want a piece of the action? Talk to me! I love working with companies whether they be big or small it doesn’t matter. Hit me up and let’s create a partnership!

In order to effectively do a review, I require a product be sent to me to review and use. If you choose to also include a giveaway, your company would be given credit for sponsoring the giveaway, but I would handle all the details. I will set up the giveaway, pick a winner, contact the winner and forward the info to you for shipping. Please do not ship prizes here for giveaways. If you do ship the prize for the giveaway to my address a shipping fee will need to be fulfilled in order for me to continue with the giveaway.
The review product will not be returned as it is my payment for the review.
Please note, I only accept full sized products. My readers expect me to fully test a product so I can give an honest and unbiased review and that is very important to me. Please discuss beforehand the size of the product you are sending; seeing as “sample” can mean different things to different individuals.
Please forward me any information you would like included in the review. I would like to spotlight your product and company as accurately as possible, so any information you have about your company or product really helps me do so. This may include links, bio’s, product descriptions, promotions that are currently going on at the time, as well as anything else that you feel is pertinent.
There is no fee to do a review, however, the product sent must be worth at least $25 (either one product or a mix of products), unless it is a book or other type of media, BEFORE shipping costs. There are exceptions to this rule, please discuss prior to sending your product.
For giveaways with reviews, there is no fee for me to run a giveaway, but if you are not sending me a product to review, I will charge a small fee of $25. This is because giveaways require a lot of promotion and time on my part and if I am not reviewing a product, I ask that I be compensated monetarily for promotion. Giveaways typically run 1 week-14 days, but there can be changes made to accommodate your company’s needs.
For reviews, all links will be no-follow as per Google’s guidelines for paid links.
I give my 100% honest opinion, according to the FTC standards.
Most reviews are posted within a month of receiving the product. Often they are posted sooner and sometimes they will take longer because of the type of product. If your review is time sensitive, please discuss beforehand so I can accommodate you. If you would like to view some of the reviews I have completed in the past they are located on the Reviews Category page.
Please read my Expanded Review and Giveaway Policy for a breakdown of all policies.
Book Review Policy:
I review most types of books because I am an avid reader and read everything from fiction to non-fiction. I love Romance, Paranormal, and Supernatural stories. In addition I love how to books, books that teach me something, and so much more.
If you are unsure if I will be interested in your book then shoot me an email and I will look it over and let you know.
In order to review a book properly, I ask that you expect to wait 4-6 weeks for your review to be posted. This is because I review several books at a time and need to give my attention fairly to all of them. There is a special Book Reviews Category here that you can see what I have completed in the past.
I also offer advertising in my sidebar for your business. Prices vary and are dependent on size and placement of ads. I require payment upfront for ads and I have many packages available for every budget. I also offer specials when buying larger blocks of time up front.
Advertising space is available on a first come, first serve basis. My current rates are as follows, though they are negotiable, for a 125×125 button on the right sidebar on my site:
- 1 Month – $25 Includes Shout Outs on Facebook & Twitter once a week
- 3 Months – $65 Includes Shout Outs on Facebook & Twitter once a week
- 6 Months – $120 Includes Shout Outs on Facebook & Twitter once a week
I also am more than willing to do paid posts. Please write me for more information on fees and to pitch your idea for a paid post to me. Please be clear about what you are asking for in your pitch. Please don’t just send me a press release. I need to know what service you are sending me the info for. Please also understand that your paid post will be marked as such per the updated FTC guidelines in advertising. For the full expanded rates and terms go to the Sponsorship/Advertising page.
