Trying My Hand at Reviews

A while ago, a friend of mine said to me “From now on, I’m just going to buy everything you buy.” He was referring to the fact that the last four or five things I’d shown him had soon ended up in his house as well, and that he’d been happy with every purchase.

He’s not the only one to tell me things like this, so I started to kick around the idea of using this languishing blog as a place to write reviews of products and services. I didn’t like the idea at first, as I felt like I’d just end up advertising for a bunch of things I liked, and I certainly didn’t want to give the impression that I was being influenced by any company. However, the more I thought about it, the more I realized that I didn’t only have to write reviews of products, but also free services, customer service experiences, and even a book review every once in a while.

I’m not sure I’ll end up doing all of these things, but I’d like to at least get my feet wet. So, I’ll be writing some reviews if things I have or use. Please give me feedback on the idea (and the reviews) — maybe together we can make something useful.
