Where do you write reviews?

Dragon Dragon
I usually write reviews directly on the Eden site out of convenience. However, after almost losing one today and losing another because the website randomly decided to change the page.... I'm about irritated enough not to.

Mostly here, although I occassionally write about non-EF toys in my blog.

I don't submit reviews on any other sites, but I review toys from other places on my blog.

I always write it to start in a standalone word-processor - it's nice to have more tools and to be able to move things around and outline easier. From there, copy and paste into the Eden form. There's just something about the web-based UIs that seems to get in the way of my composing, and I hate the tab not working.

I write reviews in Microsoft word and hit save. I won't directly write the reviews here because all too often a page has refreshed on me or firefox locks up and I lose all my work. Sometimes I use Corel Word Perfect... a good tool I've found for people that don't have a program with word count is link it counts all your words for you so you don't go over your limit.

In our Review Process content, we advise writing reviews in a word processing program then copy/pasting it into the form on our site - this especially helps with misspellings and grammatical errors. Thanks to ScottA and Sleeping Dreamer for suggesting the same!

I love reviewing on Blogger because you can save drafts and come back to them. On EF though I use Word first.

I agree with In The Pink and the others. It is a good idea to use Microsoft Word, or similar program like Open Office, which is free, for reviews.

That's a good idea! I think that I could write them online in Blogger then could paste them into Eden. There are reasons that I'm not fond of using MS Word files for Eden reviews. (I'm not worried about grammatical or spelling. That's an easy check.) I do wish that EF had the ability to save drafts though.

Well, I generally just write them on the site but I tend to use wordcounttool.org to check the length so I have copies up in 2 different tabs, if that makes sense.

If I am blogging, then I just write it up in Wordpress. I have written a few in a word document but I don't do that often.

I write the review in Word and use the word count tool that is built into Word to check as I go. I save the main body of the review on my computer before pasting it into the Eden site.

I will write them in Microsoft word so that I am able to use the word count and it helps with spell check and grammatical errors. This way I am able to save the review and I usually come back to it (that same day) to read it over one more time to make sure I do not miss anything. (Even though I am still a newbie!)
