There are literally too many advice websites to count and too many unqualified people giving advice...

San Antonio, TX Advice is an energy that attracts many undesired elements into its own general equation. Everything from people wanting attention or acceptance to salesmen in “consultants” clothing at the expense of unsuspecting persons receiving bad advice. And it doesn’t takes a genius to determine that no advice is better than bad advice, and no advice can even be better than mediocre advice. "There are literally too many advice websites to count and too many unqualified people giving advice..." explains founder Chad Vice of the Advice Watch by Advice Star... ..."There are also persons highly qualified to give advice about a topic or perhaps a few topics, but not about others; nonetheless jump right into advising on such topics." Thus, there needed to be an advice watch.
But why has there never been an all field advice watch? Well in some fields, such as legal, medical, and accounting, the “advice watch” is the licensing body. Hence, you can not give legal advice without being an attorney; you can not give medical advice without being a licensed physician, and so forth… But what about those who give advice about other topics in which one does not need to have any license? Why isn’t there an entity that recognizes great contributions of advice in recognition of the advice itself by means of the style, thoroughness, and unhidden motives? What about those who do in fact need a license to give advice as far as the content of the advice, but their style of giving such advice is deserving of recognition of being really good or not so good…?
Part of the reason may be because of the fear for lawsuits such as defamation of character. But the new Advice Watch by Advice Star has a solution… Be an advice watch, but do so positively. The idea is that those websites and individuals who are recognized at the Advice Watch website are there for a reason… They give great advice without any apparent ulterior motives within the advice itself. Those who are not have not “yet” been recognized by the Advice Watch. The Advice Watch page located at: http://www.AdviceWatch.org is currently in beta stage and encourages anyone to provide advice tips on how it should function in order to provide the best availability of advice, free and clear of ulterior motives.
The Advice Watch by Advice Star is not an advice website, but rather primarily provides growing watch lists pointing to other advice related websites. It does not try to confine one within its own site or community, but actually consistently refers to other advice pages and sites. This encourages other sites to strive at providing better advice and formats for giving advice or tips in order to be recognized and linked to.
The Advice Watch by Advice Star is also seeking to award “Advice Star” awards to individuals, websites, and other entities that provide award winning advice or tips on any topic. A custom made plaque and certificate with the Advice Watch seal is given to those who are awarded such to display at home or place of business. A website is not necessary to receive the award and recognition. Anyone can nominate, and anyone can submit sites and individuals for evaluation. The Advice Watch is also in the process of developing a site seal that can be displayed on websites that pass certain criteria of providing professional advice or tips at such site.
