Your Thoughts Count

I have just begun navigating the world of social media advertising.  It’s all about stats and visitors and hits and how much time the average person stays on your blog and where those readers are and all kinds of crap like that.  What’s your Page Rank?  How many subscribers do you have?  How many unique visitors do you get a month?

And frankly, I’ve dipped my toes into the stat pool, and I think the water’s a little chilly.  I’m just not ready to dive in.

I already have a few review obligations.  I started working up a disclosure statement.  I even have a shell of a review blog sitting and waiting to be developed.

And yet…I’m just not sure.

I love telling others about products that I find and love.  I love sharing about great deals and bargains.  I’ve loved getting free stuff.  And everything I’ve gotten so far has been stuff I like.  Stuff I’ll really use.  Stuff that I would have told you about anyway, even if I hadn’t gotten it free.

But it won’t always be that way.  Inevitably I’m going to get some product that I’m just going to hate.  And I refuse to write about something I don’t believe in or some product that I don’t love.  It’s just not me.

So what do you think?  Go for the review blog in addition to this one?  Do a few reviews here every now and then?  Get as far away from social media advertisers as possible?  Run run run as fast as I can?  Help me out here people….

    Hmmm. I think that if you are going to do a ton, a review blog is the way to go. If it’s not too many, you know not more than one a week, maybe do them here for awhile?

    I don’t know, I don’t get offered free stuff. 🙂

    I think either will work… as long as you are always honest. Even if (or especially if) you don’t like something. Good luck!

    FYI this isn’t about me at all!
