What was your biggest rookie mistake?
Your rookie mistake doesn’t have to deal with writing product reviews, it can be about anything new you have tried that you would like to share. Parenting, blogging, purchasing a home, making new friends, dieting; whatever you have done and realized the mistakes you made after the fact. Hindsight is 20/20! For me, I know my biggest rookie mistake this year was not getting organized BEFORE I started doing product reviews. I had no idea that things would progress as quickly as they did. Soon I was buried in products and the holidays were here. I thought I had a handle on it, but soon realized I was getting swamped and not enjoying it like I should be. If your hobby is not fun anymore, you need to examine what you are doing wrong and reevaluate your decision to do it. I love reviewing products so I needed to find a way to get organized, and fast. There are so many things you can do to prepare yourself for this, and it is never too late to start.
