I’ve had a few people e-mail me lately, concerned about the honesty of my reviews that I do on the blog. I too have noticed that most of my reviews come off as rosy and absolutely nothing bad to say about the product I received or purchased myself. This is mainly because I do really love all the products that I pay for myself, or get sent for free. Some of the products that I receive don’t make it on the blog, because I quite frankly don’t have anything good to say about them. Thus not wanting to bash the company and say only things I disliked about it. Get where I’m coming from?
I want people to be able to relate to me, and trust what I say. Whether the reviews be positive or negative. I have made a change in pace when it comes to reviewing products now. For instance, I reviewed the Cheverolet Cruze and pointed out some things I enjoyed about the car and some things that I would like to see changed in future models.
That doesn’t mean I’m going to change my writing style completely since I’m not a negative type of person. I don’t want to be a complainer on my blog, but I think I’m going to switch things up a bit where I list both the pros and cons of something if I’m reviewing it. Whether it be free to review, or purchased myself.
It really struck me when I had a friend say she wasn’t sure if I really liked a product I bought myself (my favorite hair brushes) or if it was just because I wanted to give it a positive review.
Not that the cons would be complaining but I really don’t like to talk negatively about anything in life. So even though I’m completely honest in ALL of my reviews, I’ll try my best more to elaborate on some of the things I would like changed, or things I disliked about the product.
I appreciate you all sticking around with me and reading my blog!
Psst, come back later tonight to see my outfit of the work week.
