Jessica popped up in my referrals this week because she’s going to start reviewing, and several of her visitors nominated me. I quite look forward to the prospect; it’s hard to get a decent review these days.
Anyway, it got me thinking about my reviewing and I couldn’t believe that my last (unrequested) review was February this year. I remember back in the day, when I was reviewing at least one a month… a look at the Way Back Machine’s record of Review You’s archive shows that much (and a look at the queue tells you why I gave it all up!)
I opened “jemjabella reviews” only to close the whole thing down a month later, because I suddenly had a queue of about 30 people all wanting reviews and pronto. I didn’t have the time to dedicate then, and I sure as hell don’t now. Doesn’t stop me missing the whole thing though.
I started doing unrequested reviews (not the same as the Pants Awards) because I thought it’d give me a chance to continue reviewing without the pressure of a queue, but instead I just have to deal with the influx of whiny babies instead. That’s not to say I don’t enjoy that too, mind :P So anyway… I’m thinking, what should I do? Is the WPR game long dead? Where do you guys go for reviews these days?
