Please have a look over these helpful FAQs
🪄✨Just like magic in a Las Vegas show, your answer is likely to appear below!
Q: I’m a brand or editor that would love to work with you. Do you accept samples or do sponsored posts?
A: Yes, Shaunda Necole and Las Vegas Right Now are available for freelance writing and recipe development and open to sponsored posts, giveaways, product reviews, brand ambassadorships, ads and more!
Please contact my agent: Johanna@johannavoss.com.
I always disclose sponsorships and brand partner relationships with a disclaimer at the beginning of the post.
Honesty and transparency are very important to me, so freebies or compensation will never “buy” a positive review.
I welcome the opportunity to promote brands, products and services that align with my mission and only promote products I think you’d like too!
Q: Do you accept guest posts?
A: For guest post consideration, please send an email with your idea to email@example.com.
Q: I really like your site! Who do you use to host your blog, and who designed your site?
A: Thank you! I have a WordPress site, and WordPress is the framework that I always recommend for bloggers at all levels!
I started with Bluehost and used them until my traffic reached over 20,000 page views monthly. Then I upgraded to non-shared hosting by WPX to prepare for monetizing my site with Mediavine display ads.
If you’re just starting, Bluehost is the way to go! It’s the best in price, service is great and the easiest option for beginning bloggers. (Plus, they give you your domain name for free if you decide to host with them!)
I currently use Mediavine’s Trellis theme. However, many of the pages on this site are custom-designed by my web design team, Pinkpops Design.
Q. How about your pictures? Who’s your photographer?
A: Many of my favorite photos are by my daughter, All Hair By Destiny. She’s a photographer, hairstylist, artist, and creator extraordinaire. She’s also to credit for the start of my career as a full time blogger!
In Las Vegas, I work with the talented Kennedy Johnson Photography.
You can also purchase the custom Lightroom preset I created HERE that I use to achieve all of my wildly colorful photos!
Q: Can I use your pictures on my site?
A: Yes, absolutely! *But only if you do this.*
If you use one of my photos on your site, you must credit the photo with two links back to Shaunda Necole.
Here’s how to do that:
1. One link back to the specific post or page the image came from.
2. And a second link back to VegasRightNow.com.
– You might say something like, “Learn more about secret hotels on the Las Vegas Strip” by visiting VegasRightNow.com.”
Thanks for sharing!
Q: What about blog posts? Can I use your articles on my website or blog?
A: Thanks so much for asking. I’m happy you want to share my posts!
Unfortunately, at this time, I do not allow republication of my articles or posts without prior consent since my posts include a mix of sponsored and contractual content (Learn more about my sponsored brand partnerships and how I get paid to be me! –> HERE).
– However, you are welcome to link to the article or page without reposting the content.
– For example, rather than copy-and-pasting the article’s content, you might say something like, “I love Vegas Right Now’s tips on things to do in Las Vegas today.”
Q: Do you have a comment policy?
A: Yep! And it’s simple. I love your comments!
My favorite thing is hearing from you! Please leave as many respectful, kind and relevant comments as you like!

Thanks so much for your questions and comments. I’m so happy to have you here!
