Angie's List online is on the edge of worthless.
I found a discount to join it when I was looking for a new doctor. Very glad I didn't pay their full rate; I spent ten bucks and I wish I had bought a couple of cofees instead.
The site is buggy and unreliable. The reviews, many of them, are one liners and written very vaguely. The free reviews on sites like Google are more helpful if you dig past the obvious nutty ones. Angie's list sends a bunch of spammy emails everyday, and though you pay to access the site, the amount of pop up advertising is tres annoying. I read that consumer reporting agencies have also said the site can be skewed by the businesses listed. Pass on this.
So I'm busy up to my eyelashes and not much time to do my own social media, which I know I will regret as time goes on. Also decided to take an in depth pottery-building class and began a new dollhouse project for my grand daughter.
As much as I love exchanging info and keeping involved with digital publishing and the new SEO, I simply can't do much of it right now. Keep me in your loops, I do read everything that is directed at me. Let me know if I can help you with anything.
