So someone emailed me and asked about my blog reviews so I thought I'd answer it here. Yes I get paid for the reviews. No they don't really tell me what to say. Basically I have to mention their website in a post. It has to meet certain criteria ( be a certain amount of words, and use specific links to their site.) But that's it. I get to say whatever I want. I go check out the website and then give my honest opinion of it. If I think something sucks, I'm going to say so. Generally I only pick websites to review that interest me, so I'd probably use their site anyway, although in most cases I haven't actually bought anything from them, I am just saying what I think about their site. Or what I'd use it for.
Oh and if you don't want to read my reviews, then click on the label Not a review and it will bring up all the non review posts. :-)
Hope that helps!
