Hello!

Well, I just recently started to do product reviews. When I first started my blog, I was actually strongly against product reviews and thought that doing them really wouldn't help the companies I feature. But, then I started to hear from the readers of my blog & they said that they found product reviews helpful and were more convinced to make purchases from companies after seeing/hearing a review. So, I decided I'd start reviewing! And...it really did help! I had one small online shop receive 15 sales that she said were solely based on my review of her product. That just made my day! I love knowing that my reviews were helping. And, I must say that the items I have received to review I still use on a regular basis and I am often asked about them - so I am able to promote the companies even more that way :)

So, what I would like to ask is:
What is the best way to go about finding companies that would like bloggers to review their items?
And, if you are representing PR for a company, what form of communication do you prefer from bloggers?

I have just been contacting the companies on my own via email - not asking for review items, but simply asking if I could feature them on my blog. And, from those - a few companies have asked if I'd include a review/giveaway. I guess I have just been "lucky" that they asked me. But, I would really like to start reviewing items from companies that really want their items reviewed - or are fairly new on the internet and want to get the word out about their products.

Is e-mailing them directly the best way? Or is there somewhere were they are asking for such things?

(sorry if this is already in another thread...I'm fairly new here & still trying to figure things out) :)
