Sean is getting into reviews and wants Leo’s recommendations on how he can do it. Leo says first and foremost, he should make sure he returns everything a company sends him for review. Leo prefers to buy everything so that way he can give a frank and honest review without being beholden. But that can be rather pricey. So borrow and request anything he can. Leo recommends starting the YouTube channel or blog first and building his quiver of reviews.
Leo recommends Marques Brownlee’s YouTube on how to best run his YouTube review channel. He does a great job. And he shouldn’t think he’ll make a living for a long while. Most don’t make money on YouTube. It takes a long time to build the audience to the point where it would be possible to have a full time gig out of it. He should do it for the passion of it, and he’ll build an audience. But remember, he’s competiting with thousands of others trying to do the same thing. It’s a tough thing to get into.

The following Writing Guides are available. To view guides, click on the list of catgories on the list below. You may view or hide descriptions of the guides.
These guides are the result of a joint effort of the [email protected] project and the Colorado State University Writing Center. Development of these guides began in 1993, when the original Online Writing Center was developed for campus use at Colorado State University. Several guides were developed in Asymmetrix Multimedia Toolbook and then migrated to the web in 1996. Over the years, additional guides were developed and revised, reflecting the efforts of many writers and writing teachers. We thank them for their generosity. You can learn who developed a particular guide by clicking on the “contributors” link in that guide.
Note that these sample paper reviews have not yet been updated for APA 7 changes. Check back in a few weeks for the updated PDFs.
