Hey, you! Yes you, the one reading this post! Have you ever wanted your opinions to appear on a blog visited by literally dozens of people every day? Well, now's your chance!
As you presumably already know, I've been writing reviews of all the 6-star stories on Equestria Daily, starting with the oldest and working my way forward. Assuming nothing interrupts my posting schedule, come Friday I'll be 'due' to review The Purloined Pony. So what's the problem? Well, I'm the one who wrote that story. For reasons that should be obvious, I wouldn't feel comfortable or competent to review it myself, but I don't really want to skip over it altogether. So, I'm looking for someone to do my dirty work for me! Here's the deal:
If you want to help me out, read my story (linked here) and write a review. I ask that you use the same format I do for my 6-star reviews (Impressions before reading, Star rating, etc.), and that you do your best to provide an honest, accurate, and spoiler-free review of the story geared towards potential readers. Send your review to firstname.lastname@example.org before 12:00 am on January 6th (US central time), and I'll put it up on the blog. That's all there is to it!
If no-one submits a review, I'll just skip over my story. If two people decide to review it, I'll post both. To be clear, I won't edit or censor anyone's review, so long as they follow the format I've laid out. Whether you give it five stars or one, I only ask that you make your reasoning clear, and do your best to give potential readers some idea of whether or not they'd enjoy the story.
A bit of fair warning: it's a choose-your-own-adventure, which I'm guessing will make reviewing it a pain in the butt. Hopefully someone answers the call. If you have the time and inclination, happy reviewing!
