Today is my Yelp anniversary; I joined the website on January 8, 2009 and wrote my first review on the 14th. As of today, I’ve written 717 reviews.
I started because it annoyed me that no reviews were being written by NOLA natives. And while y’all know I like voicing my opinion, being active on Yelp has introduced me to a slew of people that I probably would have never met. So, yes, I do write reviews for free, but the friendships I’ve gained because of the community have made it all worthwhile.
Sappy but true.
