How often do you change your review style? What are the reasons?

I was wondering about how often others change their writing styles on reviews. I do this occasionally for a change of pace.

I change my style every few months. Usually adding a component or redoing my basic method. This keeps it fresh and not redundant. I have just added a new addition to my reviews and am wondering if it is effective...

Actually, I've been laying off on reviewing as much because of this -- wanting to try and change my personal style, which I honestly think is kind of.. unnatural because most people have their very own personal style and that's that. But I've been kind of stuck because each time I publish a review, there's someone who'll publish one on the same item days later and I almost mistake it FOR mine.

I have yet to figure out how to really change my writing style and still be me and make my reviews as useful as I like to and normally work so damn hard to accomplish. It's just hard to change your own style.

I do like to change the type of review I write. Sometimes I'll be ready for a change in the product I'm reviewing.

I can say your method is effective because I really love your reviews! The last one I read recently was excellent & you do have a way of showing through. I could pick one of your reviews out from a crowd of them without ever seeing your name! I really love that too. It's you. Even if you change pace, your lovely personality is there.

I've only been writing reviews here for a few months. Before that it was just randomly/occasionally for the heck of it.

In the few months I've been writing reviews here, I've already felt my writing style evolving. Part of that has to do with reviewing different types of products, part of it with the inherent discipline of the advanced template, part of it with what I've learned from reading lots of other reviews and from my mentor - and also partly because I try to keep a "beginner's mind" and stay open to new ideas and approaches. I'm not sure whether my review writing will eventually gel into a particular style, or whether it'll just keep evolving. I hope it keeps evolving.
