Reviewing responsibly: the power of Social Media

When we started this blog we knew that a good percentage of our content would be reviews and especially reviews of restaurants. We are foodies after all! 

We’ve made the decision not to write a negative review. If we go somewhere that wasn’t our cup of tea or just had an overall bad experience, we choose not to write about it. That’s what we call “reviewing responsibly”. 

A lot of the places we visit are family owned, small businesses. We would hate for a bad review to take money away from a family or someone pursuing their dreams. That’s not what imready.blog is about! We want to be uplifting and give credit where credit is due. 

So rest assure if you see us in your establishment taking pictures and writing notes, if we don’t have anything nice to say we won’t say it all! 

It’s so sad to see small businesses close after a few bad yelp reviews, deserved or not. There is a lot of power in social media and it shouldn’t be taken lightly. 

We would love to feature more businesses on our site. If you’re an owner or you have a favorite place that you think deserves some recognition send us a message at blogimready@gmail.com. You can also message us on Facebook or instagram @imready.blog.

  1. I really love your attitude! Many people only ever write a review if they are unhappy about something, which can be so disheartening (as my wonderful friend, who is a chef and very devoted to every single meal he prepares, confirmed). It`s great to see someone doing the opposite, and I wish there were more people who do that in other areas of life If you don`t have anything nice to say, it`s better not to say it at all.

      1. Interesting point of view, and far too rare… I think a lot of negative reviews come out of a needd or revenge, disguised as honesty, as that puts the reviewer in a good light. But it usually says more about the reviewer than the reviwee, e.g. about being petty and vindictive, as if there was nothing more important about a good night out than a slightly overdone steak…
