Independent and Honest Software Reviews
I might earn a commission if you purchase some of the software I review, but I try to monetize with Google Ads to keep the reviews honest. (I use the commissions to try out new software and buy some food)
How do I keep my reviews honest?
It’s pretty hard to write honest reviews when you like to eat 7 Big Macs a day, but this is how I try to keep my reviews as honest as possible:
- I try to be specific: I avoid generalizations and provide specific examples of my own experience using the software. This can help you understand what to expect and make informed decisions.
- I focus on the positives and negatives: I highlight the strengths of the software, but also identify areas for improvement. This can help software developers make necessary changes and improve their product.
- I avoid personal biases: I’m objective with my reviews and I avoid letting personal biases or preferences influence my review. I focus on the software’s functionality, ease of use, and other relevant factors. (as long as I’m not reviewing chicken wings, my reviews should be honest af)
- I consider my audience: I think about who will be reading my review and what information they might find useful. I provide enough detail to help others make informed decisions about whether to use the software.
- Furthermore, I’m respectful: Even if I had a negative experience with the software, I try to be respectful and avoid personal attacks or insults. I stick to the facts and provide constructive criticism that can help the software developer improve his shitty product.
