eh... It's not really a bush league shot.
ďUpso, it's nearly as weird as a 1* rating from you.Ē
whatís weird is referencing a totally separate social media outlet that has nothing to do with Toledo Talk on TT.
I joined yelp in í11 as a co-owner of a restaurant who wanted to promote other restaurants I liked. I avoided reviewing restaurants I didnít like because I was in the business and felt it was best not to comment. I only made one 1* review during my tenure, and it was because I could not help myself.
During my 3 years involved in a restaurant and also as a yelper, I was also 100% in Toledo so I could only yelp so much. In around 3 years I posted around 130+ Toledo yelps and thought I was helping spread the word on good Toledo vibes.
Now I am on contract in Chicago, not involved in the restaurant biz, and in a city that has SO many more restaurants to explore than Toledo. I am changing my ratings to accommodate and will Iím sure be posting more 1, 2 & 3 stars in the process. Iím also yelping a boatload more while Iím here. Itís fun. I like it.
Once againÖ weíre talking yelp. Itís not rocket science. Anyone can use it. Nothing to be taken too serious.
THANKFULLY, in both Chicago and Toledo, I surround myself with positive people and for the most part most of my friends are food centric so I typically go to good restaurants. Actually, I try my hardest to only go to good restaurants!
I realize my yelp account is public, and it may affect some peopleís filter of their opinion of me, but for the recordÖ I use it to document the awesome places Iím eating on a regular basis for fun.
I apologize in advance if that changes your perception of my posts on other social media like my posts here on Toledo Talk.
Oh and related:
ďWith 4,400 posts he more or less is the mascot of TT...moving to Chicago, notwithstanding.Ē
No plans on moving my friend. Working out of Chicago on an amazing project. Still own my house in Toledo and am in Town during the weekends and as much as I can in general.
Iíve got lord knows how many posts on Facebook. The 4,400 on TT. 7,444 tweets at the time of this post. 1,822 instagram posts as well. Pretty sure a boat load on other message boards as well and a good chunk of that output is pro toledo. I figure Iím a mascot of Toledo in general at this point and not just Toledo Talk.
But regardless. Iím just trying to enjoy life, and have fun. Sorry if that rubs you or anyone else the wrong way. I think Toledo is great. Chicago is great. The midwest is great. These are values Iíve had for my entire life.
