The Calm After the Storm

Date Wed, October 4 2017

My summer was busy. Hectic. Tragic. Exhausting. It was all those things and more, and I didn’t write about it here. In fact, I rarely wrote anything on Reviews by Cole. I had big plans and I failed to come through. In the past, I might have apologized to you, my readers. But I feel […]

Date Mon, April 10 2017

After some unexpected — and what should have been avoidable — down time, Reviews by Cole (and the rest of my sites) are back. I apologize for any inconvenience.

We’re Back

Date Fri, July 31 2015

My site was down when I woke up. I’m not sure how long it was down — hopefully not too  long — but it took at least three hours to get back up. This meant you may not have seen updates posted to social media, you couldn’t access the site to read review or enter giveaways, […]

5k!

Date Mon, June 16 2014

In May, I posted about my social media accounts nearing 5,000 followers.

The Most Popular Posts on Reviews by Cole

Date Thu, April 17 2014

The thing about blogging and marketing yourself is that you have to keep doing what your readers like. The posts that get the most comments and views do something right, and you should try to determine what that is and then replicate that success. To be honest, I don’t often pay enough attention to specifics […]

Apologies!

Date Wed, December 4 2013

Thanksgiving is a great time to get together.. and give everyone your cold. I don’t know who the culprit was, but I’m just mucking along with a foggy head here. Aside from posting a few giveaways and writing part of a review, I just haven’t been able to do much more. Here’s to me coming […]
