We weren’t all born into the world of blogging. Some of us had to learn blogging dos and don’ts. Some of us have yet to learn them.
In late summer of 2014, I taught a blogging class for middle school kids at The Cabin in Boise. My friend and former co-worker Kate Smith and I loosely went over the history…
If there was a Yelp TV show, what would you expect it to be called?
Saved By The Yelp?
The Real Yelpwives of San Francisco?
Yelpis and Yelp-Head?
Yelp Vs. The Evil Dead?
It turns out, it’s actually called 12 Hungry Yelpers and it’s definitely a real thing.
It’s one of many new Food Network shows, and it’s being made…
“I got you the $80 crutches because they had much better reviews than the $70 crutches,” my friend Herb told me on Black Friday, 2015.
I sprained my knee on Thanksgiving. It was a particularly bad sprain, and all I did was reactivate an old injury. It was excruciating and embarrassing.
Worse still, I did it in front of a…
“We’ll get you to the first page of Google in less than a month, because we know someone at Google. Also, my uncle works for Nintendo. I get to play all the games before they come out. But don’t tell anyone.” – Typical SEO Scam
Unless you’re a doctor, you have to trust your doctor at their word. You can…
Hello, welcome to the fifth episode of ReviewJunk. I’m your host, a person who writes things on the internet. Like most of my peers, I am indistinguishable from any other person who writes things on the internet.
“I miss that Dan Rather. He was such a nice man,” our parents tell us. “Now anyone can write anything and plop it…
We recently put together a list of 70 local citation sites. Think of it as a sort-of Konami code for your local SEO efforts.
“What does that even mean, Dustin?”
I’m glad you asked.
Did you spend the halcyon days of your childhood throwing your Nintendo controller at the wall because you kept dying in Contra and Gradius? I…
Welcome to Advanced ReviewJunk: Fourth Edition. In this prestigious column, I address the serious issue of funny reviews. I also review these funny reviews because I don’t know how to leave well enough alone.
Since none of my coworkers have been brave enough to stop me from posting this weekly series, you’re stuck with yet another ReviewJunk. It’s been a…

Tom and Landon are separated by the Atlantic Ocean. Though they might not describe themselves as such, they’re both advocates– but upon first glance, they’re on opposite sides of the conflict.
Tom is based in England. He’s a restaurant inspector who wages a good-humored battle against fake reviews, both through his writing and through social media. Tom pushes for authentic…
Yes, hello. Welcome to the second installment of ReviewJunk, a segment in which I dig up strange, biting, and funny online reviews from around the internet.
This week, we’re featuring another Boise business, a restaurant with BAD SERVICE, a buffet that has nothing good to offer at all, one very thin product, and a timepiece that seems to stare into…
In an act of what ESPN calls “fast food retribution,” McDonald’s has awarded Minnesota Vikings coach, Mike Zimmer with 100 cheeseburgers, complete with 100 slices of processed cheese and 100 yellow wrappers. There are presumably 200 pickles, 200 pieces of bread, and thousands of flavor-crystal “onions” somewhere in that mixture, as well.

Welcome to the first installment of ReviewJunk, aka RevenueJump’s weekly excuse to have a little too much fun. Each Friday, we’ll bring you a smattering of funny, brutally honest, and otherwise notable online reviews from around the web. So, in other words, the weirdest reviews.
