Want to Partner with Week99er?
Week 99er is a lifestyle blog that focuses on gluten free living, product reviews, event coverage, travel, and entertainment and the site is updated daily! The website was started in 2011, when Becky reached week 99 of her unemployment benefits. The site has grown to include regular contributors and family friendly content. With a variety of topics covered, there are a variety of ways we can partner to help promote your brand.
Becky is the Editor and main writer at Week99er.com, the writer for A Girl’s Guide to Cars, and contributes regularly to Detroit Mommies. She also organizes local events with Bloggers.com, and is launching Wanderlustandreality.com with her boyfriend.
An interior designer by education, her passion for design can be seen not only on her websites but at the local design college where she teaches. She brings a modern sense of design to marketing to her career and helps students navigate social media for their future design careers.
She started Week99er seven years ago, and it has grown into a lifestyle website that covers gluten free living, product reviews, event coverage, travel, and entertainment. Blending modern marketing through social media, design and honesty, Week99er has a devoted readership and following both on the website as well as social media. With well over 50,000 followers across the social media accounts, Week99er is growing quickly and would love to work with you!
Born and raised in Michigan, Becky has always had a love of traveling and sense of adventure. She’s willing to try new things or grab her passport and hop a plane at a moment’s notice. From deep woods camping, cruising the open seas, or heading to the theater, Week99er is happy to cover any adventure. The motto in the house is “Have Passport – Will Travel”
While Week99er started as a one woman show, the site has started to grow quickly and now includes a small writing team to help cover local and events nationwide. The blog is PR friendly, and hot button issues are kept off of the blog, to make sure it is is a friendly place for everyone visiting.

If possibly we would love couple trips for the site, since seeing the destination from more than one perspective is a great way to write the article.

We know, blogging is such an awesome job that you want to do it too! We are in love with blogging and would love to help you kick start your website and your journey into this awesome career.

Reviewing items can be a lot of fun but it doesn’t pay the bills. We’re more than happy to work with you on review features but please check with us on our our current rates. We understand your budget may be small, but please consider the time it takes for us to do photography, editing, writing and actually using the product. We do not return review items, because let’s be frank – it has to have some benefit to us. Writing an article and returning the item has all the benefit for the company not us. If you’d like to work with us, reach out and let’s talk about how we can work together.
Due to the amount of review requests we cannot accommodate them all. But if your product is a good fit we will be in touch! Unsolicited items will not be returned and may not be reviewed – so please be sure to reach out and let’s talk before hand!
All reviews will be done within 4-6 weeks unless we have an agreement for a quicker turn around. But please keep in mind that all articles take time – so an item that arrives Friday will not appear on the website on Monday.
