There are plenty of sites online that offer reviews of local restaurants or activities, but there aren’t many sites that have reviews of, well, everything. But “reviews” is perhaps the wrong word. At Diddit, the site acts as a kind of collective blog, where users can write about their experiences in a particular place – such as New York’s Central Park. Instead of writing a review of simply the park, they might write about their experiences that took place in the park, such as “I kissed my girlfriend for the first time” – more personalized stories, rather than saying if it’s good or bad.
Given that information is user generated, some content is better than others. A comment like “A must see!” is not entirely helpful, so you can expect to wade through some remarks before finding the more thoughtful and long-form comments. Diddit is not just about places, but other things you might “visit” as well – such as a particular CD or a breed of dog – people write about their experiences listening to a new album, a really unique breed of dog, and basically anything they want related to a particular topic.
It’s a kind of one stop blogging platform – instead of simply reading one person’s take on a topic, you can read many. And if you’re interested in expressing your knowledge and opinions about a topic, you can do it in a place that has a vibrant and active community.
