As an addendum to my last post on here, if you prefer reading RSS feeds in LiveJournal rather than using a dedicated Feed Reader, you'll probably want to subscribe to thetenwordrss. This syndicated feed contains the latest ten reviews from TheTenWordReview.com, so you'll be kept up to date with everything that's being written on the new site. Alternatively, if you do prefer to use a dedicated FeedReader, then subscribe to the actual RSS feed.

I hope everyone has a very happy New Year.

It's a week later than expected, but TheTenWordReview.com is finally properly live! From now on, any new reviews should be written over there, rather than here.

My favourite two bits of the new site are that it collects together all reviews of one thing onto a single page, and that it will help you count your words as you write your review. Just these two things alone should make writing Ten Word Reviews a lot easier and more enjoyable from now on. Coming very soon is the ability to search the site properly, and the ability to "favourite" any reviews you think are particularly amazing.

Pretty much every page on the site has its own RSS feed, so if you just want to keep up to date with book reviews and ignore everything else then you can. Likewise, you can follow a single user's reviews or keep track of the things that have been reviewed most often or even see a leader-board of the most prolific users.

So, what are you waiting for? Get on over to the site, create yourself a username and write your first review. If you've got any suggestions for improvements, either leave them here or email me at neil.crosby@workingwith.me.uk

I hope you like the new site :)

Hello from your friendly community creator/maintainer/chap. First off, please forgive the fact that this post is more than ten words long!

Over the last couple of weeks I've been working on sorting out a brand new website ( TheTenWordReview.com ) to replace this community that I started back in 2003. The idea is to make it a lot easier to create and find reviews, and to re-inject a bit of excitement into writing ten word reviews.

As part of this effort, I'm hoping that everyone who's been using this community over the last three years (yup, it's really been that long) will be happy to let me port the reviews that they've written here over onto the new site.

Obviously, I'm not going to move any reviews across unless people okay it first, so please can everyone reading this either say yes or no in the poll below. If you'd also like me to pre-setup your username on the site, please can you also enter an email address (the results of the poll are viewable by nobody purely so that only I see your email address) that I can contact you at and I'll create you a username so that you can take a sneaky peek before I go fully live! Who could want more than that?

So, the poll...

Poll #889643 TheTenWordReview.com Review Porting

Can I port your reviews from this community over onto TheTenWordReview.com?

Hell yes!
5(100.0%)
No way!
0(0.0%)

What's your email address?

Beautiful graphics, compelling story. Puzzles too simple, not enough gameplay.
