Welcome to TTBG’s Book Blogging Confessions! The idea for this post came about after I made a throwaway comment to Nicki over at The Secret Library that my blog doesn’t seem as popular as a year ago and that I must have sinned as a blogger. She told me to confess my sins and here we are! Thanks for the post idea Nicki!
Me: “Forgive me Father for I have sinned!”
Father Wood: “Well my child, I am here to hear your confessions”.
Me: “That is good, thank you, I have been a bad blogger, some might say even a very bad blogger”.
Father Wood: “OK, you have been a bad boy did you say?
Me: “What? Blogger, blogger, not boy father, blogger”
Father Wood: “Aaaahhh you are a very naughty boy correcting me my child, very naughty! Are you a dirty boy too my child? Perhaps a very dirty boy? Do I need to wash you in my cleansing holy cream”
Well! That didn’t go well did it! The randy priest tried to get jiggy with me! Guess I’d better confess on my blog! 🙂
I can on occasion be a bit of an ass or if you prefer a cunt.
I don’t blog daily! – I know, I know, the shame!
I don’t blog hop daily! – again, I know, I know, the shame!
I swear on my blog.
I occasionally use inappropriate euphemisms and language.
I tend to be sarcastic!
I don’t use perfect grammar.
I tend to be negative at times and don’t adopt the whole happy bright and fluffy attitude that most bloggers have.
I do not have a bright and colourful blog aesthetic. It’s red and black, black is dark and about as far from colourful as you can get and let’s not mention the bloodied teethed wolf in the graphics!
I do not read all of my ARC’s before release date!
I expect authors when they appear on my blog to send me all the relevant information for the posts. – I know, I know, it’s my job to get all the links and info for them as I am merely a lowly book blogger and they are a benevolent author. However, I make them do the work and I know that it is wrong of me. I hang my head in shame, sorry authors, I will rectify this, please, in future just send me the post or excerpt and I will get everything else like the slave I am.
I have previously stated that all bloggers are equal and I know this to be wrong as in-fact there are massive blogs and chosen ones who are far above the lowly scumbag likes of me. I repent my statement, we are not all equal, it is the few over the many, silly me!
I also said that there are cliques in blogging. Again, I was wrong, forgive me my transgressions as obviously there aren’t!
I tend to pad out my posts with nonsense!
I have had inappropriate feelings for book characters. C’mon look at Joffrey in ASOIAF (Game of Thrones if you only know the TV show) sure his gag reflex sucks but damn he’s such a sweet and kind-hearted soul, be still my beating heart!
Not to mention Dolores Umbridge from Harry Potter, yum! She is so strict! She’d soon put you in your place! How hot is that! Wowza!
Did I mention that I tend to be sarcastic?!
Finally, I don’t really tend to take this blogging thing seriously.
So there you go I confessed my sins, my soul is clean and I am now a good boy!
