Frequently Asked Questions

What’s all this, then?

Gadgette is Holly Brockwell‘s blog for women who like technology, gaming, social media and the web.

I’m not female. Am I welcome too?

SO welcome! You don’t need to live in New York to read the New Yorker, after all.

How do you pronounce ‘Gadgette’?

Ga-JET. Like ‘ladette,’ as someone helpfully pointed out. I prefer ‘courgette.’

Why doesn’t Gadgette have a comment section?

It did, originally. People liked to fill it with bile, particularly on articles championing women or calling out sexism. So I deleted it. Ain’t nobody got time for that.

Do you use affiliate links on the site?

Yes, because I like to be able to pay for hosting and electricity and nice things like that. This costs you nothing and doesn’t impact your reading experience. Please see the affiliate link disclosure for more details.

What about products provided by PR?

Most of the products we review and cover were sent by PR companies for consideration. Sending us a product doesn’t guarantee a review, and it certainly doesn’t guarantee a positive one! There’s more info on this here.

Can I write for you?

Sometimes people guest post on Gadgette, but we can’t currently pay freelancers, so please only volunteer if you were going to put it on Medium or something otherwise. If you can get paid for the piece elsewhere, do. To talk about this, email me.

Can I tell you about a product or service you might like to feature?

Yes, but please be mindful of the fact that I’m only one person, single-handedly dealing with freelance writing, life admin, and some super-fun health issues. I write about cool stuff when I can, but I also have bills to pay and a life to live, y’know? Email me here.

Can I advertise on your site?

That would be lovely – hosting doesn’t pay for itself! Info here.

What’s your mailing address?

I tend not to put it on the internet because of, y’know, security. But if you’d like to post me something that isn’t a poo in a box, send an email and I’ll give you the details.
