Sponsored Product Reviews by GBS
I’m extremely excited to have the opportunity to bring to my blog site my first ever sponsored reviews of various flight simulation add-on products for the new Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020. While I’ve written many product reviews over the past 10 years, (this year I celebrate 10 years blogging about flight sim) these reviews carried the disclaimer “The product I’m reviewing was purchased by me and for my own personal use” etc. etc. In these reviews I’ve always expressed my absolute opinion (good or bad) and I while these new reviews will be sponsored (meaning I’ve received the add-on at no charge in exchange for reviewing it here on my blog), my writing style will not be influenced. Simply put…if the developer has created a solid add-on, then they shouldn’t be worried about what I (or anyone else) could possibly say about it.
When I was a Boy Scout, I held the position of troop scribe. I would write up all the activities our scout troop was involved in and not only record this in our troop log book, but also submit the article to our local weekly newspaper. I learned a lot about journalism from the owner/editor and firmly believe this is one of the reasons I enjoy blogging today. Anyway….I will present the reviews in the “Five W’s and an H” of journalism of Who, What, When, Where, Why and How.
Each review will accompany images and with add-ons which involve airport scenery, I’ll provide before and after images along with specific elements regarding system performance in both a before and after style report. I may from time to time use both still images and video to showcase the product.
What I hope to be able to offer through these sponsored product reviews is a genuine, honest opinion. Too many times the bloggers, content creators and live streamers fail to truly share an honest review of whatever product they’ve been provided to showcase. I will do my best to always point out the pros/cons, positives/negatives and/or strengths/weaknesses of whatever product I’m reviewing. Just as I’ve always tried to do in the past.
Stay tuned. I’ll have my first sponsored product review out very soon.
Until next time…
