All reviews are non-compensated so that we can be as honest as possible with our readers.
If you are a local business with a product that you’d like our site to review please contact editor(at)rocketcitymom.com. If we decide this is something of interest to our readers and a good fit for the site, we are happy to write a review for free. When appropriate, we’ll make arrangements to give said product away to one of our readers.
However, we won’t say we love something we don’t. Since we’re all good southerners, that means if we can’t say something nice, we won’t say anything at all. If you send us a product and we don’t feel it meets Rocket City Mom standards, we simply won’t review it. If you want, we’ll even send it back (but you’ll have to pay for shipping).
At this time we are only accepting posts from guest writers that are parents or experts living in the Huntsville, Alabama metro area. If that’s you, let’s chat.
If you do not fit these requirements, we will pass – RCM is an extremely hyperlocal site that provides hyperlocal content.
