The Story Behind the Name Tyrneathem
Perhaps the one thing I’m most asked about is the site name. Tyrneathem is derived from the Gaelic language. Tyrn is “the children of” and athem means “dragons.” Therefore, Tyrneathem means The Children of the Dragons. My husband and I share a passion for dragon artwork and lore, so we are the children of dragons!
The pronunciation is roughly typed out as tayr-nay-tum. The middle syllable probably carries the most emphasis, but my pronunciation varies a bit depending on the sentence I’m using the word in and my mood. It’s not really a real word… so it’s up for interpretation.

I have a few minor requirements for reviews. These terms can be negotiated. In order to review products for a company, the total value of the item(s) should ideally exceed $25. (Minimum value is $50 for the Holiday Gift Guide.) Shipping must be covered by the company requesting the review. If your product is valued at under $25, please contact me (email@example.com) and we can discuss terms.
Only full-size, new products will be accepted for review… I do not review samples or used items. In either case, the products become my property and will not be returned. They are considered all or part of the compensation for my time and advertising of your product.
My review will be shared once over all common social media including Facebook, Twitter, and Google. Promotion beyond this is on a varying pay scale based on what you would like out of the campaign. Additional promotion includes options such as a YouTube video, “coming soon” sneak peek and/or product shots to Instagram, Pinterest shares, and additional shares to social media.
I always appreciate it when companies also offer a product giveaway for my readers… they are why I do this!
You can see examples of my reviews over here.
For giveaways, I will usually host the giveaway solely on my blog unless provided compensation for the time to organize a larger group event. A group event involves enlisting the help of other bloggers for promotion, which can mean a greatly increased audience for your product. Please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) for information on pricing for this type of event. Price will vary with size of event needed and goals for the campaign.
All of my giveaways are promoted at least every other day on Facebook and Twitter. Each giveaway is also pinned to my Giveaways board on Pinterest. Giveaway posts are also re-posted and re-pinned once weekly.
All giveaway items must be brand new and in original packaging. For liability reasons, I always ask that any giveaway prizes are shipped by the sponsor directly to the giveaway winner(s).
Under no circumstance will I share the personal information (including email addresses) of all giveaway entrants without express consent from entrants. Only applicable winner’s information will be provided.
If you are not interested in doing a review or giveaway, but would like to get the word out about your company, a sponsored post is a great opportunity. This can be a post detailing your company or product. It can also be a post written on a topic related to your product with your chosen link included within. I charge $50 for posting a sponsored post that has been pre-written by you. Pre-written posts must be unique content that will be found only on my site. If it will fall on me to write the content of the post, I require $100 and up.
All sponsored posts will be a minimum of 300 words. The post will include keywords and links provided by you. Images can be provided by you or I will find images that compliment the post. Both options include sharing on multiple social networks.
I receive an average of 5000 unique viewers each month. During the holiday season (particularly during the holiday gift guide and giveaways) visitors will typical double and views skyrocket!

Disclosure Terms for All Sponsored Postings
I MUST fully disclose sponsored posts in accordance with FTC rules. No exceptions! Links to sponsors and advertisers will always be no-follow in accordance with Google guidelines. Sorry, but I will not provide any services for “adult” sites. They have a time and a place… just not here. I accept PayPal as payment.
