Anyone else dread writing follow-ups?

Anyone else dread writing follow-ups?

Antipova Antipova
I've got quite the pile of reviews that are two months old now, and I just can't bring myself to write the follow-ups to some of them.

I am worried that, after I've written it, I'll learn something else, or find some new use I want to add. Two months seems like such a short time! There are some I could write follow-ups for, but I don't want to get my reviews all out-of-order, either. The one that's holding me up first I still have some ingredient research to do, but for many after that, I feel like a follow-up might be more useful after 5 or 6 months, instead of two.

Are follow-ups easy for everyone else, or is this something that's hard for other folks, too? What hangs you up?

If I hate the toy or it stopped working or something else has happened to it, I have no problem writing a follow-up after two months. But, there are several that I'll probably wait six months to a year before I follow-up on them.

I think the two month rule is just a suggestion to keep people from writing follow-up reviews too soon and you usually have a good feel for how the toy performs and all of that by then, for some toys it takes longer to know everything about them. Do whatever works best for you!

Actually I like the follow up reviews - to me they are almost as important than the original review. How a toy performs over time can vary widely.

Count me as a fan of follow ups.

You mean like people people that write follow-ups after 7-14 days?

I agree, you don't have to do the follow-up at the 2 month mark, especially if it's something you don't use often. Better to wait until you actually have something to say, and if you ever discover something new about the item after the follow-up, just add it in the comments.

If I really don't want to write a follow-up then I don't bother.

I enjoy writing the followup reviews. But I only do them if I feel that I have something to say. I don't write them for most DVDs, for example. But most sex toys get a followup, as even if I no longer use the toy anymore, that can be useful information for the reader of a review.

I often put off follow-ups for longer than the two months, often because I feel guilty somehow like I haven't been using that particular toy enough lately to have a good handle on how it'll really do over time. Too many toys, too little time. But yeah, I definitely am always worrying that there'll be something I wish I could add after the follow-up.

To be quite honest with you, I just delete my emails that tell me to do follow ups. I do them when I'm ready to do them, especially because I don't always use the same things in a short period of time. I have toys that I used a lot, wrote the review, then haven't used for a few months, then used again. If you don't feel you really have anything to add to a follow up, then wait until you do. Ain't nothing wrong with doing it at 6 months instead of 2

At times, the follow up sucks. I just don't have anything new to say at times, but I don't feel like it's complete without it!

I ignore the two month email and just write them whenever I feel like it.

I just try to get them out of the way I hate writing some reviews wheres with others I live it.

I guess it all depends on the product itself.

I have a problem with writting follow-ups because I'm afraid I might be doing it wrong...

Most of my follow-ups don't get written until well over 2 months after the original review. I still have several reviews over a year old without a follow-up yet. I'd rather wait till I have something interesting to add, even if it takes a while.

Why would you think you're doing it wrong?

I love follow ups! I usually just do it on my own schedule, though.
