Are Mom Bloggers ethical?
By ThisMamaSays on March 04, 2010
Now, before you get your panties in a bunch, I am not against mom bloggers. I am a mom blogger myself and blog almost everyday at www.thismamasays.com. I created this entire web site based off some content I had read online about how “unethical” mom bloggers are becoming.
The other day I decided to use my friend Google and look up “Mommy Bloggers” and stumbled upon an article about how mommy bloggers are complete sellouts by their sponsors. I really got to thinking. All celebrities on those infomercials & commercials all say how “wonderful” a product is. However, they are paid thousands of dollars to say so. For mom bloggers, it’s merely a nice complimentary testing product to keep for their testing & review purposes. So, how can you say that’s a sellout?
The entire world of mom bloggers has been amazing for me. I get to meet news mom while having lots of fun and learning about new products coming out (or ones that’s were out already that need some exposure). Also, there’s also giveaways which are always fun as well too! How can some complain? It’s all legit here! At least you know when you enter these mom blogger contests you aren’t signing up for gazillions amount of spam to fill up your inbox.
The only unethical mom bloggers are the ones who take a product and give a “false” review without testing the product. They then turn around and sell the product to make a quick buck. This absolutely sickens me because I know the value of a dollar. These companies are always generous to mom bloggers by sending FREE (Shipping included) items to review. So, why do they deserve to be trashed?

These are just to name off a few of the wonderful mom bloggers that really strive on being a mom blogger! Go Moms!
