Back in November, I started a little review blog titled “Fairly Odd Reviews” which sits all by its lonely self on the internet, not bothering anyone. Which is sort of the problem.
That site feels like an afterthought now, and I’m finding it hard to come up with new content. In actuality, I don’t do that many reviews since I already have a place in which to pour my heart and soul writing about products I love.
But, because I’m carrying advertising on this blog, I needed to create a separate site for product reviews, so, that is why Fairly Odd Reviews was born.
After seeing how much cash my paid advertising is bringing in (ha!), I’m rethinking it all again. One option would be to drop the ads and use this blog to write about it all: all my normal chatter, plus any product reviews or recommendations I think worthy of my time and effort. I’d be clear to say, “so-and-so asked me to test this product and here’s what I think” and I won’t be doing “paid for” posts, sponsored posts or reprints of press releases.
But, would this piss you off?
Would you hate bumping into a product review every week or so? Or, would you find my love for Friendly’s Lemonade Roll or Dreambox Learning’s math program mildly interesting? Remember that if I am to consolidate the two sites, I’d have to lose the advertising here, so that may influence how you feel about it.
