Today I’m back to drinking black coffee with cream… Too many mochas in the holiday season. What are you drinking?
So I recently got accepted to be a professional reviewer for InD’tale magazine. Who knew there was a difference between professional and personal reviews. Let me enlighten you. The difference is there is compensation involved and it is written in the third person. So it’s a different rhythm writing a professional review over a personal one.
I see the ups and downs for both. In personal review, you get more self-expression without having to worry about speaking in first person. A professional review is done in third person so it’s harder to adjust. There is compensation which I suspect would demand a higher quality of review.
Both reviews get the author’s work exposure and that’s what is most important. I am excited to keep doing my personal reviews while adding to my professional portfolio. Which is another similarity that both types of review have. Being successful in writing reviews looks good on your resume no matter what side you are coming from!
Do you write reviews? Would you ever consider going professional?
Just a quick shout out to my beloved because it’s his birthday. Happy birthday babe…
