Review bloggers getting enough of what they need should be easy, right? Not so!
Sellers send us many things to review but few are willing to send things we might need to complete those reviews.
I have come up with a list of 10 things that I never have enough of – and believe me, I buy many of these just to try to keep up.
It would be great to review more of these items – or if sellers included them in the “package” because I am sure consumers often feel the same when they get products without the other necessities to go with them.
Here is my list of 10 things review bloggers never have enough of.
There are also links to products I recommend from companies I have a referral relationship with. I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.
- AA batteries
- AAA batteries
- SD cards
- Micro-SD cards
- Adequate lighting for photos and videos
- USB Hubs
- External hard drives – to store all those photos and videos
- Storage containers
- Organizational supplies
Why Not Just Swap Things Out?
I suppose people think as review bloggers we only need a few of these items and we can just swap them out.
Here is the problem – you see we might be reviewing 10 to 20 items at a time – and swapping batteries or SD cards out really limits us.
Just like not have enough USB hubs to charge things or keep them charged.
The things we use multiple times per day – lighting, microphones, etc. wear out a lot quicker than they would under normal use because we push our equipment to the limit.
Keeping It All Organized
Anyone who has never done reviews might not get this, but sometimes we get 10, 20, even 30 products in one day.
We need storage containers to keep these items organized and keep others out until we are ready to share the items.
After we are done reviewing the items we need a way to organize things – cords, things we want to keep, items we intend to gift – sometimes it does not all go into our homes right away.
Trying to store items until we need them can take up a lot of room.
It would be great if sellers who sold these larger tubs and other organizational items kept us in mind.
You know if we love it, we are going to talk about it.
