Fidget Spinners

fidget spinnerSeems like there have been a proliferation of fidget spinners lately.

I think I’ve been offered a dozen in this last month.  The first time I saw one online I didn’t know what they were for, but after a little research I learned they are to help focus someone with ADD or ADHD by giving them something to do with their hands.   The theory is that some people have excess energy and giving them something to fiddle with helps focus the person on the more important task.

There is a guy at my work who has several of these, and when he’s on the phone he fidgets with them and he says they work for him.    No one in my family has those types of issues, however I found that my boys love messing with theirs anyway.   It’s just a fun low-tech gizmo that people seem to universally like.

I think the metal ones (usually made from brass or steel) are more satisfying to use than the lighter plastic ones, but the all metal constructed spinners are much more costly.  Be prepared for $20 to $50 each.   Cheaper plastic ones I have seen as low as $6.

Facebook Review Groups

facebook_logoThere are literally hundreds of review clubs and review groups out there.   I have done a few over the last two years, with positive results.  I don’t do them a lot these days as I have more review offers than time, and I don’t need to seek any others.   However, for a new reviewer, this may be just the thing to get you started.

Facebook is home to many of these groups.   Each one has different rules and terms. Some give product free, some do random drawings for product give-aways, some require you purchase product at a discounted rate, and some require you to have YouTube and other social media accounts to post reviews to.   It will be up to you to find out the particular rules for each group to see if it’s right for you, but I’ll give you a list of the ones I know about, and you can request access to the group(s) of your choice.
