Online Reviews - Worth it?

At the concert!
I just wrote my first ever online review, and for some reason I feel empowered.

Just this weekend, I used online reviews three times in order to make buying decisions and travel plans.
  1. For booking our hotel room in Scottsburg, Ind.
  2. For our supper reservations at the 1875 Steakhouse in the French Lick Resort in French Lick, Ind.
  3. To help me decide where to go Christmas shopping on Sunday.
So, I figured it was about time to give my own two cents to the online community.

I wrote a review for the Dwight Yoakum concert the boy and I attended on Friday night at the French Lick Resort.

I bought him the tickets for his 26th birthday back in September, so we had been looking forward to this night for a while.

Approximately 26 rows of screaming women in front of us.
Ladies, let me tell you - Dwight Yoakum has got some moves ... I think. It was kinda hard to see from our seats, which I shared in my review.

It was worth every penny to see him in concert, but had I known that we would have been in chairs in a banquet hall, I probably would have ponied up for some seats closer to the stage.

In the review I wrote for Ticketmaster - I talked partially about the show (fabulous) and partially about the seats (not-so-fabulous).

What I want to do know is do you value online reviews? Do you seek them out when making purchasing decisions? 

I think I want to start reviewing more, because I read them almost religiously. Especially for purchases like camera parts, batteries and supper plans - obviously all very important to my life :)

Until next time,
Robin
