When I read a review, I always note the date of the review. Was it left a month ago or 5 years ago? Sometimes I wonder if the person still likes and uses the item they reviewed, did it stand the test of time? One of the ways I keep my reviews “fresh” is to update them periodically. I don’t do it for every single review but I try to do it as much as possible. I appreciate the rare occasions I see other people have updated their reviews with relevant information, and because of this I like to care for my reviews in this way as well. Think of reviews like they were your children, they need to be cared for and nurtured.
These metal buckets have stood the test of time, even being kept outside.
Here are some earrings I bought, and I chronicled their lifespan.
These packing cubes have seen a lot of cities.
Here is an example of a light up timer that I bought, initially liked and gave 4 stars to, but then didn’t love!
These are some amazing shoes I purchased for my son. He will outgrow them before they deteriorate. This is information that needs to be imparted!
A cat scratch post that has gone through a lot.
An inexpensive manual pencil sharpener that is still sharp as day one.
This is a review from a different reviewer. I appreciated his updates for this electric mower.
You get a more informative review when you update over time. People want to know, how does this hold up? They want to know if you still like an item a few months later, a year later… whatever the case may be. You are making your reviews the most helpful they can possibly be, and ultimately this will get you more helpful votes in the long run.
