I really struggled ...
Honestly, that's pretty much why I only review new items as assignments.

Thanks! I don't think I've ever been nominated. Not that I remember, anyways.

I was shocked because when I think of that award, I think of newer people, not old timers like me, so it was quite a surprise!

I think I need to keep that in mind. I will say that the review was a blast to write and I sat here laughing and laughing as I wrote it and said, "if I take some hits for this - its ok."

I use my personal one to do family stuff/games and the EF account for contest and EF to keep those parts separate.

I like to when I can give good comparisons, but yeah, I'm probably never going to review, say, Ella...

Well, I'm also not nearly as prolific a reviewer so I can stand to just have 2 or so reviews a month.

Its hard for me because I am newer to toys and I don't do the restraints and plugs & things like that. I feel like it limits me.

I know what I need to do to improve some of my reviews - so I'll state it here and maybe someone can help me.

a. I need to improve my education on dildos - and harnesses. I've read some reviews but I need to get a better feel for the different companies, etc.

b. I need to improve my lingerie reviews by knowing a standard set of measurements that I need to put in any review. If someone wants to message me those instead of putting them here - that would be great.

c. I love doing the bath and body reviews and I need to get feedback on those so I know how to improve. I love googling the terms like "sugar scrub" and "body butter" and stuff to be able to give that extra bit of information.

I'd also like to hear from others what you think I could improve on!

There's nothing wrong with sticking with what you're comfortable with. That's why we don't mind when people turn down assignments.

I will say mentoring is so much fun and that thrill I got today when I hit "publish" was just awesome -to see a review go through various stages and give feedback, etc.

Mine or in general?

I chose this year to do a bit of experimenting with my templates for reviews. I enjoy adding new things to my reviews that I haven't seen before. Some work better than others. I really liked tweeking lingerie reviews this year. I also did my first book review which is still the category I am least confident with.

In general: Holy cow! There are so many reviewers picking stuff up at a super fast pace and coming out with top notch reviews right away. i think the quality has gone up a lot.

I think we all have strengths and weaknesses. I love plugs, but I (like I already said) am not very knowledgeable about body products or lingerie, so I leave them to the people who know them better. I don't know if there's anyone who feels like they specialize in *everything* (well, except maybe Lauren? )

But I also feel like I'm more able to do a good job on dildos and anal toys than I am at vibrators, because my clit is more sensitive than the clits of lots of women who like vibrators, so I have a hard time telling them which threshholds it crosses. Like with the Intensity, Tuesday said it wasn't strong enough and she had to use a separate clit vibe, but I can't turn it up past the first level!

I totally agree!

It seems that with the host of reviews we've picked up (50k+) and the great mentors, this year's batch of reviewers has been amazing!

I'm hoping it's something that keeps on growing and getting better!
