#Nablopomo June 2014 Prompt for Monday, June 23, 2014 How much weight do you give reviews? Do you write reviews?
I take all reviews with a grain of salt to an extent but I generally do read them for products I'm interested in buying and restaurants I'm interested in eating at. I write reviews pretty often so I'm always curious as to what other writers are saying when they write reviews of products and restaurants. I have had reviews sway my decision as to whether or not to try a restaurant or product.
I will say this though- I rarely read a restaurant review of a place I'm going to be writing a review for until after I write my review because I don't want it to influence what I'm going order or what I'm going to say. If it's a place I'm just going to for fun and I just want to know what others think about it then I'll read the reviews before I go. Same goes for products. If I'm writing a review of a product that was sent to me for the purposes of review I won't read anything about it except for the product's description and instructions for how to use it when applicable because again- I don't want what others have written to influence my review.
Have a product that you want me to review too? Contact me HERE!
I'm PR friendly ;)
