Top 10 Reasons I Enjoy Writing and Reading Reviews

Top Ten Tuesday at Many Little Blessings

I have been very busy and had taken a few weeks off from doing anything but my review posts. But things are slowing down a little bit so hopefully I will be back to my normal posting routine.

This week I want to share 10 reasons I enjoy writing reviews and reading them too!

Why I enjoy writing reviews:

1) Its a great way to provide for our family. Reviewing products helps us get homeschool curriculum  and other things (toys, art supplies, games, etc) for the kids that we wouldn't be able to afford otherwise.
2) I enjoy sharing with others. By sharing our thoughts on products (especially curriculum) I hope that we are helping others with their decision making process. Especially when it comes to deciding whether or not a curriculum is a good fit for their family and children.
3) It's something I am good at. I worked as a retail manager for over 11yrs so marketing, promoting, selling and customer service are in my blood.
4) It's a great self-expression activity for my kids.  I always try to include Gwyn and Rowyn's input on reviews. I type word for word what they express to me. Sometimes Gwyn will even do a Vlog on a product.
5) It's a great way for our family to earn a little bit of money. Many of the companies I review for also have affiliate accounts. So I can put my affiliate links in my reviews and earn a little bit of a commission if my readers choose to make a purchase.
6) It's a way to bless another family with FREE products. Often times the companies I work with will allow me to host a giveaway. I love how excited people are when they found out that they won.
7) Writing is an outlet and hobby for me. I enjoy blogging very much and by having a line up of products to review I never have to worry about not having something to blog about.

Why I enjoy reading reviews:
8) I like to stay up do date with the newest, latest and greatest curriculum, toys, games etc.
9) I like entering giveaways. Entering giveaways takes only a few minutes and if you are lucky enough to win you can get some great things. Last year (and this year too) the majority of our kids Christmas presents are items I won through giveaways.
10) I like to find more great potential companies to work with.
