I said when I began The Ultimate Blog Challenge I wouldn’t include review posts in my “post every day” requirements. I noticed many others do, and I figured, why not? After all, reviews aren’t just a copy and paste post. Although in a review we share factual information about a product or service, we also share our experience with the product(s) or service(s). It isn’t just informational, it’s personal.
In reviews I often share something about myself or my family as well, and it is written from my unique perspective. I also focus on not only being personal in my reviews but thorough as well. They generally take a considerable amount of time to compose and often include personal pictures as well, which means editing photos, too!
So, although I originally said I wasn’t going to include reviews in my one post every day requirement, I changed my mind – particularly now. I was up the entire night before we left for our trip to Houston not only getting things together for the trip but mostly trying to schedule posts for when I would be away. I scheduled the reviews (one with a giveaway! Yay!) I wanted to complete, but despite remaining up all night I was unable to schedule personal posts. Then, I came to the realization I mentioned above. My reviews are personal content as well!
So, here is my post for today! Yesterday’s was a review. Tomorrow’s is a review – and giveaway. I am still striving for more personal content outside of reviews this month, so I might change my mind back once we return from this little vacation. We’ll see! I can’t wait to share our trip with you! We’ve been having a blast!
