ANNOUNCEMENT: Looking for New Reviewer(s) (2012 Edition)

The Impulsive Buy is currently looking for enthusiastic, talented, funny, and self-motivated individuals to write processed food product reviews. We hope to bring on one new reviewer to write one or two reviews per month, but may hire a second.

Writer Requirements:

1. Must have a computer.
2. Must have a digital camera (or a very good camera on your smartphone).
3. Have spelling and grammar abilities equal to or greater than mine.
4. Have an ability to entertain people with words.

It’s a paid gig, but we won’t say how much we pay per review. However, we can say it’s enough for you to have a pizza party for one…maybe two.

If you would like to apply for the position, here’s what you’ll need to send:

Writing Samples:

1. One sample review in TIB format (nutrition facts, rating, price, pros, cons, etc at the bottom). The review can be about whatever food product you want. Just to let you know, we won’t be using the review on TIB. The sample review will help us determine if your writing style would be a good fit. To give you an idea of how long a TIB review is, they range from 400-1,000 words.

2. Photo(s) of the product you reviewed. (High quality versions, please!)

3. A bio and why you want to write for The Impulsive Buy.

A Few Notes:

1. Due to legal reasons, we can’t hire minors.

2. At this time, we’re not looking to add writers from outside the United States.

3. Please don’t send your review as an attachment. Copy and paste your writing samples into your email. However, you may send the photos as attachments.

To apply, please email your sample review, pictures, and bio to [email protected] with “Boom Shakalaka” in the subject line. The deadline to apply will be May 31st.

Thank you.


Note: To those people wondering about guest reviews on TIB. So far, I’ve received 30+ emails from people who are interested in doing guest reviews. I still haven’t decided whether or not to have them on TIB, but I’m kind of leaning towards having them. But before I make a decision, I want to bring on a new paid reviewer. I’ll make a decision about guest reviews after the May 31st deadline passes.

        1. Forgetting the word “be” is actually what I was referring to.

          I will applying though.


  1. I look forward to a time you accept reviews from Canadians (is it because we are too polite? Because our Kraft macaroni and cheese is called Kraft Dinner? Are you afraid we are biding our time to silently invade your country? Oops. Forget I mentioned that).

    Maybe it’s because we use too many brackets…….

  2. I would like to apply but I wanted to ask first if you were looking for a particular writing style or mood. What I mean is are you looking for a writer with a different attitude or one that is similar to those already reviewing products? Cause I’ll write with whatever disposition you want from obnoxiously happy to snarky to presumptuous and cynical!
    But is all serious I just wanted an idea of what you are looking for if I may ask.

  3. Damn it, I just found out about this!! A day late and a dollar short…
    Mind if I send one later today anyway? Or has the deadline truly passed?
