Advantages You get to find out my views about Ciao
Disadvantages You may not want to know what I think!
Well, I haven’t been around for a while and as there are loads of new members who don’t know me I thought I’d take up the challenge set by ElizaF and hope that it well help the new members to get to know a little bit about me.• Full name:
Julie - that's enough!• Ciao Username:
Junkboxjules – when I first went online I spent hours and hours trying to find a unique email address and eventually came up with Juliesjunkbox – then as I started to sign up for different sites and needed a username I just decided to mess about a bit with the email address and came up with Junkboxjules – not very exciting I know but that is how Junkboxjules came about.
• Date when you joined the Ciao community
• Why did you join Ciao?I was heavily into competition websites and was initially directed to the Dooyoo website because of a competition they were running – it was during my time reading other opinions on the site that I learned about Ciao and decided to come over and check it out – the rest, as they say, is history.
As mentioned above, I am a member of Dooyoo and I also joined Epinions - I still try to participate at Dooyoo as much as time allows but I think I’ve only ever written 2/3 opinions on Epinions. I was a member of U-Rate-It but they have temporarily gone offline until April this year.• Reviews written to date:
116 – I think I wrote my first 100 really quickly but the latest 16 have been quite spread out.• How many ops/reviews do you write in average a week?
When I first joined I was writing at least one review a day, but lately it has been more like one or two every 3-4 months.I’ve spend the last few months busy with Craft Fayres and have been so snowed under making things and working at my “day” job that I haven’t had the time to visit the site very often. Now that the rush is over I am hoping to try and get back into the swing of reading and writing on a more regular basis.
• How long does it take you on average to write an op?If I’m writing about a product then usually I spend between 30-40 minutes but if I’m writing about a personal experience then it can take anything up to 2/3 hours – sometime I could go on for hours and then I have to go back and edit out some of the drivel!
• How would you describe your writing style for ops?
I’m not really a very professional writer and I tend to write my reviews in the same manner that I’d tell you about something if I was talking to you on the phone. Personally, I prefer to read reviews that are written in this style as I find them easier to read and absorb than reviews that are full of a lot of technical mish mash and are not really based on much personal experience.
It would have to be my Las Vegas opinion because it is the only opinion that I’ve ever received a diamond for and also writing it brought back so many fantastic memories of the best holiday I’ve ever had that I thoroughly enjoyed reliving the holiday when I was preparing the op.
