Here I sit with my eyes drooping with more luggage under them than Heathrow airport, realising that this is will be my last review of 2005 as I am going away for the month to visit my family for the Christmas holidays this week, so therefore I feel it's time to write about something other than a movie I just watched.
So I will sign off with a review on Ciao itself, with the experiences I have had with the site, and some of the members who I have read from to whom I have become to really appreciate.
When asked for my Ciao user name I chose to call myself Dempsey_Review,
My god now I have been here a while do I wish I chose something different, even just 'Dempsey' would have done, but no, I had to be a complete nerd about it and choose something lame and obvious. But never the less I am stuck with it.
I first became a member of Ciao on the 2nd October 2005 hoping to earn a lot of money in a short space of time just for writing my views on certain products, HOW DISALOUTIONED WAS I !!!!!
There I was, when I first started, punching out loads of reviews in a very short space of time, staying up till all hours, not doing a very good job of it I might add, to then logging on the next morning to find out I had earned 7 pence for my effort and a load of comments saying 'sorry for the low rating, but more information needed' , WELL……..not only did I swear the most awful obscenities at my computer, it took me ten fags just to gain my composure again! However amongst all the comments were some helpful criticism from some of you members on how to get along better with Ciao, and rather than putting my Ciao experience to rest early, I decided to take note of them, and try and improve my reviews. Soon enough, members began to trust me and enjoyed my reviews, which gave me a very nice satisfactory feeling. And I began to read a lot more from others which became very interesting with some very enjoyable reads. Now when I look back at my first reviews I cringe. I must get round to editing them some day.
The earning money side of Ciao did not seem to matter to me anymore, but just the sheer satisfactory of members who have enjoyed what I had to write. Before I knew it Ciao became a bit addictive, and I have actually made some quite nice friends on the site.
