So, Book Bloggers are getting a hard time lately...


Afternoon all, I'm feeling in a slightly boisterous mood so thought I'd get on my soapbox and be all potty mouthed on this depressing Tuesday afternoon. So I have seen a fair amount of posts about negative posts regarding bloggers BLAH BLAH BLAH. Apparently we all profit massively, and aren't 'real readers', at least this is the gist of it I think. Those of you that truly know me will know one vital thing about me, and for those that don't please see the above image.

Life without books is for me like telling my husband he can never watch football again. It doesn't work in my world and frankly the amount of time I have been 'Blogging/talking shit/waffling my opinion' (however you wanna slice it) I have been there, seen it and normally have got the T-Shirt. In the 7 or 8 years of doing this I have no doubt pissed off loads of people:-)

Why do I read and review...err see above, because I HAVE to read, my world doesn't work without it. Do I care if I piss people off with my opinion? Err no. Do I care if I piss off authors/reader/anyone else with my honesty? Err no....you get the picture. Do I get paid? Do I fuck! I wish I did, but reading for me is a hobby, a passion and something that I can truly get on my soap box about.

I have been doing this near on 8 years and to be frank I couldn't care less about statistics, followers or anything else. I do not profit from this, this 'hobby' costs me money the same as every other poor bastard who dreads the sight of the 'Amazon -One-Click' button. To be honest I think if people want to be nasty and spiteful, let them. Don't waste energy, effort or time on all that. Read, review, don't review, argue, disagree...I don't care. But what we all agree on (or most of the people who will bother reading this) is that we like to read. That's it...it's REALLY simple. If you like to read, then carry on. If not that' fine too.

For me blogging has found me friends far and wide, and that is the most rewarding thing!In the sort of world we live in today, there is enough to be worrying about other than whether Book Bloggers are not real readers. Christ, imagine if they would have said that to me, my response would have been to tell them to Fuck Off, promptly Block them and then forget about them just as quickly.

Anyways, enough of my soapbox, I'll get off it for now. Just do what you want to do and don't waste time or energy on people that are arseholes. As long as YOU are happy that's it...job done.
