Hello
 
 
 
My name is Alyssa D, owner of Arts & Crackers, happy military wife, and busy stay-at-home-mom (more like work-at-home-mom) of two energetic little boys (a preschooler and a toddler.)

 

Read more about me.

 

Some things I love (and love to blog about):

 

Food/recipes

Being a mom

DIY products (for all ages)

Inspiring others

My faith

Fashion (children’s, women’s, men’s)

 

Arts & Crackers has been around since April 4, 2013, but I have blogged and reviewed products for several years on my previous blog Dealy Os. Read why I started blogging.

 

We’re PR Friendly

Arts & Crackers works with brands!

 

I work with companies to provide my readers with honest, high-quality reviews of products, services, and events. We are all about integrity here so I will share the good, the bad, and the ugly so my readers know they can trust my review and to provide companies with feedback they can improve with. While I am sure to share what I personally do and do not like about the products, I try to keep all of my reviews in a positive light.

So…why Arts & Crackers?

 

Our posts are very high quality and I put a lot of time and effort into crafting each one. My posts are unique and original…I go above and beyond seeking to be set apart from other bloggers. Occasionally I will use free stock images and edit them to fit a post, but most all of the pictures I use on my website are exclusive high quality photos taken by me just for the post.

Posts, especially sponsored, will be continually promoted after the promotion time is up, so exposure to your company will continue.

We are a credible site that has worked with many large companies and many campaigns over the years and I operate with integrity first (like the Air Force motto!) For this reason, among others, I follow FTC guidelines and will mark all sponsored posts and shares with a disclaimer and code links as “nofollow.”

It’s just me over here right now (with the help of some close family members and friends who double-check my work for me), so you know what you’re getting!

I also have a great ratio of sponsored to non-sponsored content on my site. I am always coming up with new ideas and love the inspiration from brands we love.

 

What do we offer?

 

  • High-quality sponsored evergreen content
  • High-quality sponsored evergreen party/home makeover posts
  • Ambassadorships (3 months, 6 months, 1 year)
  • “Sticky” posts
  • Social media blasts

Our Numbers

 
Numbers certainly aren’t everything–“quality over quantity” goes a long, long ways–but sometimes you just need to know the numbers.

**Stats as of 10/12/2016
 

**Social Media:

  • Facebook (3558 fans)
  • Twitter @AlyssaDarbyBlog (1948 followers)
  • Pinterest (5213 followers)

**Google Analytics:

Last 30 days:

  • Visits (17,867)
  • UMV (15,320)
  • Pageviews (26,242)

 

**StatCounter Analytics:

This is currently my more accurate counter. Three month average:

  • UMV (18,003)
  • Pageviews (23,725)

 

**Alexa:

This is really not accurate, so I have stopped focusing on this. Basically, to get your Alexa down, you need to have visitors who have the toolbar downloaded on their browser. This is something the average visitor will not have–moreso just some bloggers and companies. It is not a good representation of traffic or site popularity.

  • Global (1,026,544)
  • USA (192,293)

 

**Authority & Rank:

  • Domain Authority (34)
  • Page Authority (43)
  • MOZ Rank (5.31)
  • Google Page Rank (0–I started this site shortly before the last GPR update and it is now a fossil)

 

Some companies I’ve worked with:

  • Dyson
  • Frigo® Cheese Heads®
  • OshKosh B’gosh
  • Combi USA
  • Pennzoil

I find your blog very informative.  I appreciate that you don’t just share the positive regarding products, but also tell us the negatives.  To me, that means we can trust your opinion.

~Dorothy M

 

I love Arts and Crackers, I read her posts daily! She gives honest product reviews and her giveaways are the best!! I also enjoy her topic related posts such as teaching kids colors in creative ways and the yummy Cinnamon Hot Chocolate recipe she shared.
