Upcoming event 100 yelp reviews…oh yeah and Indiegogo and Kickstarter stuff as well…

One of the things I’ve done over the past five years is Yelp Reviews. I enjoy writing restaurant reviews and am approaching my 100th yelp review. I don’t know why I decided that is a huge milestone, but it is for me. So I am trying to figure out what to do with number 100. 97 is the next review up, and I have a couple of ideas. Number 100 is important to me, but I have no clue yet what to do.

I started out my Yelp Reviews doing more negative than positive reviews. I reviewed two organizations that at best had horrible customer service. I then decided it would be more fun to focus instead on the good and great restaurants and customer service experiences around me. I started posting more and more positive reviews and only posting horrible reviews for the bad customer service experiences we all have. The funny thing is I don’t review technology on Yelp, but I do review companies and restaurants that provide customer service. Perhaps for number 100, I should do a review of Yelp itself!

Yelp, Indiegogo, and Kickstarter are places you vote for success with money. You either spend money (food or items) on Yelp, or you pledge money on Indiegogo and Kickstarter. I am still deeply concerned with the number of projects on Indiegogo that disappear. They get money and then they are gone. I don’t wander to Indiegogo as often now, as I did before. I still have 16 outstanding projects that never communicated after they got the money. Oh well sad that people act that way in the end.

I am proud of my approaching 100 on Yelp! I am honestly well past 100 projects funded on Indiegogo and Kickstarter. I still log onto Kickstarter frequently just to see what is happening. I won’t fund projects on Indiegogo because of the project gap, but Kickstarter is only at 2, and both of the projects announced that they were discontinuing the technology because it just wasn’t possible.

Now if I could only decide what to review for number 100 on Yelp!

  1. I have never really scratched the surface on these. Never go to Yelp though I run across it sometimes in searches and don’t usually look. (I’m usually on a different type of research) I’ve seen announcements for some Kickstarter and thought that I could suss out a project pretty well there. I always meant to go back and look more.
    Indiegogo – I kept seeing projects for films announced and had the feeling that these projects didn’t need the money as they had plenty of funding options or money already available to them.
    This is a most cursory impression on my part.

    • There are tons of cool tech projects that both IG and KS do. I worry about IG more now becuase of some of their direction and lack of oversight. But KS has a lot of cool stuff going on.

      I’ve used Yelp for picking restaurants for a long time, it is a great platform for that!
