|Michaelmountain:spring hope, thank you for writing this piece. At one point, I was a regular reviewer. Then work (life, the pandemic), and everything else got in the way. Lousy excuse, but I did not have or take the time to do a review.
I agree reviews are necessary and good for the writer, want-to-be writer, and everyone in between. Thank you for your reviews of some of my pieces.
Why I read this: I read this because earlier this morning, I read two of your reviews of my work.
What did I like: I liked that you took the time to make some honest suggestions on how to get things done on WDC. All of your recommendations have always worked for me. When I wanted more reviews, I started reviewing others.
I also gave others memberships, recommended WDC as a worthy site (created my own network onsite). I also gave points to help purchase memberships.
This site also provides guidance on how to give a good review. I have not read the guide in over a year, but it was helpful reading.
I think a review should be honest, not nasty. It should help, not hurt. In addition, when you do an honest review, most writers will appreciate your time and effort. Lastly, I always remember with any review -- given or received -- the review is the writer's opinion, but stay open to their comments because I might just learn something.
Again, thank you for my reviews and for writing this piece.
