I made a big list of blogs and new sites, then went through and contacted each one several days ahead of launch. I got some really positive feedback and I think the personal touch was worthwhile.

On some sites, they have an email address or form for tips. On others you can find email addresses for particular people

Buzzsumo isn't "free" by the way. They get you to sign up for a free account but all the juicy stuff can only be accessed with their pro account @ 99/moth. Now, that's not cheap, but from looking at what they provides, instant searching of any topic brings up any relevant share, tweet or pin by any blogger or influencer big or small... with the option of exporting that data.... that's really powerful stuff. Unfortunately it's a little outside my budget. I think if I could afford it, I wouldn't be croud sourcing in the first place :). Good to know about them though.

Regarding finding publications, I'd look up BuzzSumo. I did a review of them on my blog. It's a free tool and you can use it to find people and publications that are writing about particular topics, filter by keywords, time, etc.

Thank sbriggman! Digging into this now. So much to do right before a launch.

Buzzsumo is expensive and I am not really sure how beneficial it is but I guess it saves you some time if you don't want to sit like I do pouring through information, media, articles etc to get the same results.
