I heavily rely on people’s reviews before making purchases… yes, even for brands I already use. (I use yelp ALL the time, I get product samples, I check every possible hotel review and photo… and don’t even get me started on how many reviews I have read on Amazon)
I am not really the type of person who does something without thinking of the possible outcomes… that would be my husband!
Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying I don’t make crappy decisions. I certainly do. All I am saying is that I tend to obsess and do my research before I make good or crappy decisions so I know what I am getting myself into.
Not too long ago, I was looking for reviews of a couple of items I was interested in purchasing and was really disappointed as I could not find any reviews online. So, I decided to woman up, buy the items, and write the reviews myself. For too long I have taken advantage of others people’s generosity of posting their reviews. Its only fair that I contribute so I can do my part and help others to make more informed decisions.
So I am going to start contributing. Obviously, reviews only work if the are honest. I trust in people’s reviews and I want people to trust that I am giving my honest opinion about a product.
