Massive thanks to everyone who has supported my blog this year. Each and every single one of you rock and are all awesome for bothering to read the nonsense that I babble on about. 🙂

I’m ‘just’ a book blogger and proud.

People think it’s OK to insinuate about our reviews and pick on bloggers as we are just the little people, easy targets and prey and nothing will happen, there are no consequences to be faced. It’s sad that this happens and unfortunately, it’s no surprise that some bloggers stop for a while or even quit blogging altogether due to the bad experiences and negativity that often surrounds being a blogger.

Please stop disrespecting us and questioning our morality on reviews just for being ‘bloggers‘ and let me tell you something. Regardless of the genres that we read – fantasy bay bay! You would be missing out on some of the best, unique, thoughtful, fun and individual book reviews out there by forsaking bloggers. Not to mention that we are all a bunch of damn fine decent people too!

To conclude:

I’ll shout it loud, I’m ‘just’ a book blogger and proud!

Do you realise how much work it takes to run a book blog? Did you think of that when you all decided to put down book bloggers! We write reviews, host blog tours, guest posts, interviews, memes, tags and features to. We visit and comment on various other blogs. And before all that, we create the blog, our own little corner of the Internet, think up a name, design the graphics, etc, it all takes time and it’s worth it, don’t put us down as not being ‘real’ readers when we all put effort into creating and maintaining a blog.

We blog because we are book lovers and we were reading books far before we started blogging, we didn’t wake up one day and think ‘oh, I’ll create a book blog to get free books’ silly dumb dumbs! We created a blog to share our love of books. No matter the genre we read, we are all passionate readers, instead of coming up with crap about us not being real readers, go and visit our blogs, look at the time and effort that we’ve put into them and while you’re there, read our reviews, you will see the love and the passion we have for reading come through in our reviews!

Can you have a Book Blog without Book Reviews?

Yes, technically you can have a book blog without reviewing books. I’ve mentioned some above and there are plenty of various different types of posts available to you, more than enough to fill your blog up daily without ever going anywhere near a book review.

An Open Letter To an Unnamed Author: Stop the Harassment.

Now, there might be those of you who have read this and taken offence, I sincerely apologise if you have as none was meant, I am merely writing the truth and at times unfortunately, the truth hurts. Hopefully the issue has now been resolved, but in all honesty it should never have gone this far in the first place. Some people just have no decency regardless of the consequences their actions cause. 

If this post loses me followers then so be it, I believe it needed writing.

While this post is about a certain author it is very relevant to everyone out there as regardless of who this author is, harassment can come from any, bloggers you don’t need to stand for harassment by anyone, we are a community regardless of country or favoured book genre, we stand together for each other!

The Pressures of Book Blogging.

A post snippet:

Do you stress out over being one of the cool kids? Mr or Mrs popular themselves?!? The jock or the cheerleader instead of the geeky book reading nerd?!? Do you and your blog aren’t popular enough?!? Thinking it’s not my blog, it’s me and taking it as a personal affront that you aren’t the King or Queen of blogging?!?

This ties into our blog stats (I mentioned in the above point) and while we shouldn’t get hung up on them, that’s easier said than done and at times it’s something we all do.

But I think whereas blog stats are general, questioning the popularity of our blog is personal, especially if we blog solely for the purpose of being popular and not just for ourselves and our love of books.

I know I’m not popular and as such, I know that my blog isn’t and you know what, I’m OK with that. I’ve never been one of the cool kids or part of the in-crowd and I’m happy to be the loner sitting in the corner making sarcastic comments about everything! – though, if anyone wants to join me in the corner the offer is open. 😉

So there you have it my 5 most popular blog posts for 2017! 🙂

  1. You had some really good posts this year. Reading them has been quite enjoyable. I have to say though, I am surprised that NONE of your inappropriate book cover posts showed up on this list.
