About Ashley, the owner of Closet of Free Samples

My name is Ashley & I`m a wife and stay at home mom of a beautiful girl named Sophia, who was born in January 2008 and soon to be son expected in January 2014. My children are my life and brings lots of joy into it as well as much craziness. I was born & raised in New Orleans, LA –Yes, I survived Hurricane Katrina. It`s a crazy place to live, but it`s still my home. I graduated from Archbishop Blenk High School in 2005 and always had a love for freebies. I am working full, enjoying the family life time and still somehow fit time in for my site. As you can see I am very dedicated and love what I do! Don`t ask me how I do it, but I do and I love it! I am friendly, funny, crazy and easy to get along with and just overall love to meet new people while enjoying a fun hobby!
I do not get paid for my site, but I do participate in affiliate programs which you may come across often including some guest posting from paid advertisers. closetsamples

How did I get started with this blog?

I decided to search the internet for "freebies" & came across many sites one day out of being bored. This inspired me to begin my own blog to share the freebies I have found... kind of just something to do since I was bored. Then I just wanted to keep up with how many things I was signing up for so I made a blog. I started to keep up regularly and found myself fixing up my blog (now a web site) and going from there slowly gaining more readers. Then I discovered other sites were doing product reviews. I began looking into that and began getting reviews & giveaways to add to the mix. I have been posting and sharing them ever since!

Blog target audience/traffic

My targeted audience is in the USA, next largest audience coming from Canada. The audience is made of both men and women, but mainly women with at least half of them being mothers in the age range of 18 to 34. My current blog stats are as follows:

Advertising options / rates

Post Exchange:

I am willing to do a post exchange. How this would work is you would write up a short blog post or information post about me on your site somewhere, linking back to me. Once I have seen your post I will do the same for you, linking back to you. Remember, google has changed a lot of it’s “spam” rules so rather than just making a list of links a unique and brief post about each others site would be the most beneficial to all of us.   Free Blog Posting: If you want me to write a blog post about your site it must be for a product review (with OR without a giveaway – your choice) or free stuff WITH free shipping. You must also write a blog FIRST about my blog in order for me to write one about yours if you want it free.  

Paid Blog Posting:

Any other type of postings I do charge a fee of $25 per post if I have to write it or $10 per post if you have the content written already. NO ADULT CONTENT as this a family friendly site.  

Sponsored Link Posting:

The Sponsored Links Section is located in the footer of the site has open exposure on the homepage as well as all individual pages. I will sell advertising slots there for $20 per linkper month OR $100 per link per 6 months OR $200 per link per year.  The price is higher up because it is in full view all the time on all pages.  

Monthly Image Ads:

You can have your image ad on my site for just ONE month for $55/month for an ad in the sidebar. The image must be sized at 125×125 to allow it to fit properly. I will also allow a 300×250 ad which is larger for $200/month. These are the prices if you’re ordering directly from me. If you would prefer a more secure method of purchasing an add you can use the information below to make a purchase as well but due to processing fees it will cost a bit more. An image ad is more noticeable and tends to draw more interest than a text link. This would be visible on all pages as well as the homepage.


  Facebook Fan Page Link Share:  This option you are paying for me to share your business/web site link on my  facebook fan page. The cost for this is just $5. This is a one time fee and your link gets posted ONCE. If you’d like to do multiple postings it’s $5/each or $100 for one posting per day for a whole month. Please, no adult content.  

Twitter Ad Tweet:

Want me to send out a tweet to all my twitter followers? I’ll tweet your ad for $2 per tweet! Please make sure you have your URL shortened. If you need me to shorten your URL it will be $2.50 per tweet. See my Twitter Account.  

Product Review/Giveaways

Product Reviews are a great way to spread the word about your business to new customers! Whether big or small, local or overseas, I am open to trying new things of all sorts: Family, Kids, Home Decor, Jewelry, Odds & Ends, Unique, Handmade, Computer Software, Electronics, Clothing, Shoes, Accessories, Food, Candy, Etc. –the list could go on forever! If you would like me to review a product from your company (and give one away if you so choose) I would be more than happy to do so at NO cost as long as I am keeping a product from your site for my time & sharing the information. Your company is required to cover the shipping cost to the giveaway winner. Also, If you want me to host a giveaway I require a review to go along with it as I like to provide my readers with honest feedback of my experience with the business & product(s). Each post I do for my reviews are permanent and will never be removed. I also link back to your site and include my own personal images to show I really do have the product and am using it – which I believe to be more attractive for my readers to know they are getting real first-hand experience.

For everyone who has me do a review they will also receive a permanent link to my sponsors page.  All posts are also sent through my RSS feed onto twitter, facebook & myspace to gain more exposure. I also link to “pin” my reviews to pinterest under appropriate categories on my “boards”.  

Payment Methods:

I will accept via paypal only and online gift cards are welcome as well such as from Once the payment is received and cleared your ad will be placed up within 24 hours. I will also accept trades as well. I’ll trade my advertising for something you have for sale  such as if you have an Etsy, Ebay store, etc. if I find something I like. Just another option. I’d post within 24 hours after receiving your end of the trade  
**If you are looking to do multiple advertising transactions or looking for multiple options, I am willing to negotiate the advertising costs. Please contact me for further information or if you’re interested.


Product Review Details:

Once I receive the product from the company, I will have a review up in a month depending on Products and my life schedule outside of blogging, usually a lot quicker though. Once the review is complete I share it on my social networking sites to ensure optimal views. If for some reason I am unhappy with the product or if it got damaged by the mail, I will contact you prior to posting the review to try to work something out. I like to be honest with my readers and will not lie about my feelings, but I also want to give you positive feedback so it works out for the both of us. Your review will stay on my website forever unless otherwise noted. I am willing to do video reviews if necessary and depending on the product. I also take my own pictures and add them to my review, unless you need me to use stock images.
