Advertising, Reviews and Give Aways.

Picklebums is a blog about everyday life as a Mum in rural Australia. Among lighthearted personal posts there is a focus on activities for children, family food and recipes, gardening and parenting. I share insights, printables and resources with my readers and strive to create a strong sense of community.

Picklebums offers a limited number of side bar advertising, as well as accepted sponsored opportunities

Working with Picklebums will allow you to reach thousands of women who are already users of social media in a way that is meaningful to them. Picklebums can represent and share your brand with a loyal and engaged audience.

Picklebums is well suited to promote family friendly, child centred products as well as products related to printing, art and craft, and design, home and garden.

Items such as children’s clothing, books, educational toys, art and craft supplies, kitchen and home-wares, printers and printing supplies, and gardening related products all do well on Picklebums

Picklebums currently offers limited private side bar ads for products and services that are a good fit for my audience.

No more than 3 100x300px ads sit mid range of my side bar and suit family friendly, child focused brands and services.

I can also offer graphic design services to create a suitable ad image or simple animation.

Guest Posts

Please do not email asking to guest post on picklebums.

Since Picklebums is a personal blog I do not accept guest posts from brands or companies.

I occasionally run guest posts from other bloggers or writers, and will put out a call on my blog or facebook page when these opportunities arise – please do not email asking to guest post.

Charity Work

Picklebums chooses to support several charities.

I am a World Vision Australia Blog Ambassador and support World Vision both on and off my blog and with profits from my blogging work.

I also support Good Return and other charity and charity events, especially those relating to mothers and children, as they arise.

Please understand that I am simply not able to support every charity and good cause that contacts me.
