PR Friendly-About me

Welcome to my blog! You may have found me because you searched Canadian mom blogger or Ontario mom blogger, or BC Blogger, maybe you were looking for a family travel blogger in Canada or an online influencer. No matter what, you have come to the right place. 

About me I am married and in my 40’s. I am a redheaded coffee loving Canadian mom of four, both boys and girls aged 8-23. (3 still living at home) I love traveling, exploring local gems and easy recipes. 

My kids are very active in sports and outdoor activities especially track and field, swimming and soccer. We love to travel and explore our ever changing world.  Most often you can find us exploring local Canadian family attractions but we love to check out family travel destinations all across the world. I often write about my family, our adventures, being a mom and being a redhead. 

On my family and lifestyle blog you will discover  I am an animal lover and have a soft spot for dogs (we have 3 large breed dogs). But I have been known to feed the odd stray as well.  We have a Macaw that we rescued over 6 years ago. We also have a baby hedgehog.

As a mentor I like to support fellow bloggers as they learn and grow, I have been a panelist discussing brands and the relationships between PR and family bloggers. I was a panelist at Shes Connected and BConnected.

Readership- Tales of a Ranting Ginger has readers from all around the world. However over 3/4 of them are located here in Canada. They are mainly women aged 25-45 with children.

About the blog
I started Tales of a Ranting Ginger to share my findings when it came to great products, events and deals available to Canadians.  If you have an event, coupon, sale or deal you would like to share contact me.  I would be happy to post it as long as it is available to Canadians.  I try to post giveaways open to both USA and Canada whenever possible

Would you like me to review your product or host a giveaway?
I am always open to reviewing great products and sharing my findings with my readers.  I love to express my excitement when I use a product that is truly wonderful.  I do this by writing a review post including my positive or neutral opinion, your company information and any contact links to your company (twitter and Facebook) My posts are written in a story telling form. I have a product minimum I require due to time restraints. Contact me for details. 

All products sent to me for review are mine to keep and will not be returned.  I am not interested in writing or posting a negative review.  If I come across a product that does not work for me I will discuss this with the company or PR rep directly. I respect the company and feel this is a fair way to resolve any issues that may occur.  I will post minor quirks and opinions when it comes to colour choice, flavour etc.

I require the review product(s) to be a full size item . Review items are to be kept once used and not “loaned”or returned to sponsor or used as prize. Samples are not acceptable for review. 

Any items sent to me for review without previous knowledge or consent will be mine to do with as I see fit. Just because you send me an item I am not required to post about it. Review items sent without knowledge and prizes sent to me to be shipped will be gifted or donated. Shipping is NOT in my budget, sorry. All shipping, duty and taxes are to be covered by the sender. Please make sure you email me before sending product to work out details and confirm availability. 

Giveaways– I also post giveaways on the blog, either in combination with a review or on there own.  Giveaways are a great way to promote your product and create buzz.   All giveaways run for 2-3 weeks.  Mandatory entries can be requested by the sponsor if they would like example; newsletter signup, twitter follow etc.  but usually I have a visit the site and leave a comment entry. If you would like a giveaway without review a fee will be charged. (Please contact for pricing)

I promote giveaway posts on twitter, Facebook , my newsletter and various forums and linkies.  I also post links on other blogs link ups for maximum exposure.  Giveaways are posted using Rafflecopter or Giveaway Tools and winners are picked using their random selector. If I do not use them to pick a winner I will use Winners are contacted by email. Winners will have 48 hours to confirm the win before a new winner will be selected.    

It is the responsibility of the company or PR rep to ship the prize to the winner.  I reserve the right to donate prizes shipped directly to me as I see fit. I will not ship prizes for sponsors. All blog posts automatically post to my twitter feed where I have over Twitter 18500 followers and Facebook (9000) as well as direct email to subscribers. Thanks to Triberr and networking I have a reach on twitter of  1 million +

If you have a product to share for families, pets or women then send me an email. I would love to work with you!
