Addressing some recent Blogging BS. #BookBlogger #BookBloggers #Blogger #Bloggers

I read something yesterday that really annoyed me. Someone had read a 'hyped' book and was very disappointed in it. In itself, that is fair enough but what I took from the comment was that it seemed implied by that person that everyone else who had loved the book was lying about it and that… Continue reading Addressing some recent Blogging BS. #BookBlogger #BookBloggers #Blogger #Bloggers

There is No Right or Wrong Way to Review. #bookblogger #bookbloggers #blogger #bloggers #bookblog

Speaking from the heart, one of the things that really annoys over blogging (even after nearly three years) is when people start saying that reviews should be written in a particular way! As someone who often struggles to find the words to form a review and, then, subsequently thinks that most of their own reviews… Continue reading There is No Right or Wrong Way to Review. #bookblogger #bookbloggers #blogger #bloggers #bookblog

Do you trust bloggers who don’t post negative reviews? #bookblogger #bookbloggers #blogger #bloggers

While trawling through SM I sometimes see that people (some) have an issue with those in the community who choose not to post negative reviews.

So, I thought that I'd reveal (not like flasher gremlin) my thoughts on the… Continue reading Do you trust bloggers who don’t post negative reviews? #bookblogger #bookbloggers #blogger #bloggers

Venting: Pirating books is wrong! #bookbloggers #bookblogger #bloggers #blogger #books #blog #blogpost

I'm not an idiot, contrary to what some may think, a bastard, sure, though as Slipknot sang 'I'm just a bastard but at least I admit it' and a bad blogging influence (I don't know why you'd have to ask the Jackanory jackass who called me it) and, as such, I fully realise and understand… Continue reading Venting: Pirating books is wrong! #bookbloggers #bookblogger #bloggers #blogger #books #blog #blogpost

E-Readers vs Print Books. #BookBlogger #BookBloggers #Blogger #Blogger

Welcome to one of the most pointless debates possible! A rivalry for the ages, that generations-old feud between electronic and print, the Monday night wars for books! Which is better, the e-book or the print book?! You really would think that in the grand scheme of things that it wouldn't matter wouldn't you and the… Continue reading E-Readers vs Print Books. #BookBlogger #BookBloggers #Blogger #Blogger

Why are reviews unpopular as blog posts?? #BookBlogger #BookBloggers #Blogger #Bloggers #Blog

Reviews at least for me are one of the hardest types of blog posts to write. Give me a reason or subject to rant about and I will type and type and type but when it comes time to write an actual book review I often stare at the screen drooling with a dumb, lost… Continue reading Why are reviews unpopular as blog posts?? #BookBlogger #BookBloggers #Blogger #Bloggers #Blog

Reasons why a blogger declines your review request and doesn’t want you on their blog. #BookBloggers #BookBlogger #Bloggers #Blogger #Authors #BlogPost

I saw a fantastic blog post on this exact subject a few months back on the My Peacock Books blog. Due to some of the contact I've recently received on my own blog, it got me thinking about the reasons why we decline and so, I decided to broach the topic myself and write my… Continue reading Reasons why a blogger declines your review request and doesn’t want you on their blog. #BookBloggers #BookBlogger #Bloggers #Blogger #Authors #BlogPost
