||-You get quite a few sites for one very low price, especially considering the sheer amount of content
-All the sites are amateur focused but run the gambit of secondary niches, so there is quite literally something for eveyone
-The main network page is very well laid out and includes a sidebar of recent updates to all of the network's sites
-There are plenty of extra feeds that I actually found worth watching unlike many other sites I've been on in the past
||-Not all all of the "sites" stand on their own as many are merely a part of CarolCox.com
-Some of the sites listed on the network's home page aren't linked to anything and are presumably defunct, although they remain a part of the "68 sites" that are advertised
-The quality and quantity of content at each site is highly variable, with some being downright awful
-Navigation of the network page as well as the individual sites can leave you confused and end in dead or broken links
||When I joined the Wild Rose Network I was specifically interested in only a couple of the sites, but with the low price and dozens of others for what is admittedly a pretty low price for a network I figured I'd give it a shot. I was generally pleased with the sites that I had joined to see, but overall the uneven quality left me hanging.
The "main event" site of the network is clearly CarolCox.com which I have previously reviewed. Many of the other network sites are actually extensions of hers, having their own address, but just a subdirectory once you get past the main page. These sites alone provide tons of content with above average video quality and quantity.
I did reviews of the other "network stars" and their sites which mostly replicated the quality of Carol's site, but offered nowhere near the same amount of content. There is a very functional main network page and list of updates from all the sites, but many of the links are either broken or long dead. As far as I could tell, any site on that list active or not, is counted among the 68 advertised.
Besides the highlights noted above, the rest of the sites are average at best, although some may offer an obscure niche. If you enjoy amateur content and find a site or two that looks remotely interesting here, I can recommend joining for at least a month to see if it's to your liking. However, I think most will come away disappointed if you have high expectations. I enjoyed my visit, but didn't stay for long.
