What is the fascination with Rate My Space? Someone, please tell me! I know it is fun to look into other people’s homes, I get that. I love to peek inside myself if given the chance! I am the kind of person who will drive around a neighborhood at night so I can see your beautiful rooms! Yep, I’ll admit it. I’m a beautiful room stalker.
But for those of you who have put yourself through the torture of having people you don’t even know rate your space, and tell you what is good or bad about your decorating or remodeling from a postage sized photo, what is the appeal? WHO is rating your space and why do you care what the world thinks? What is in it for you?
Perhaps it is just all in good fun, but the people rating your space might have horrible taste! They have never been in your home or stood in your room. They probably have no idea what they are talking about! Most of them seem nice enough, but still!
I’ve read through some of the comments on these poor folks rooms and can’t believe some of the stuff people say. Some of it is fine advice, some of it STINKS!
Please, help me! I am just a bit out of the loop on why people do this. Enlighten me, dear readers! I know some of you may have your rooms listed and will be able to tell me your experience with this phenomenon. If you think it is the funnest, greatest experience ever, let me know! Does anyone regret being on there?
I have helped people with their decorating dilemmas from photos before and I don’t find it the best way to really solve issues. Remember my sweet cherubs, your home is more than what you can see in a photo. Photos can be very deceiving and I don’t want any of you being misled or getting your feelings hurt over some odd comment on Rate My Space.
I don’t like ratings for anything (including blog directories — mean people can give you a thumbs down for no reason, so you really can’t trust those ratings!), unless it is something I am going to buy. Then I want to know what Consumer Reports thinks! I don’t trust movie ratings either.
Ok, enough ranting about Rate My Space from me. I want to know, what do YOU think? How do you rate Rate My Space and why?
