So much drama going on in the blogisphere right now. It is between authors and bloggers, and now even between bloggers. I really hate seeing this, it really puts a damper on the blogging world and I think it will eventually make some people quit doing something that they love.
I can understand when Authors can get their feelings hurt over a negative review, it is their baby it's something they have worked hard on. That being said, I cannot understand how an author can take such offense to a so-so review. Unless a blogger goes through a review and bashes the book, there is really no reason to take such an offense to that. No Author is a God, so their work is not perfect. If you are going to put yourself out there in the world with your work, then you have to expect that not everyone is going to love you and not everyone is going to accept your work. Same thing with bloggers. I put up a positive review of a book yesterday on my Vlog about a Religious related book and I got this horrible comment from someone attacking me personally and telling me they wanted to kick my teeth in. Way to be Christian! We should all pull up our big boy and girl panties and move on and most of all STOP ATTACKING EACH OTHER!! There is nothing good that is going to come out of that. If you put out negative energy, it's only going to come back to you. I was shocked and troubled by the story that I heard yesterday within the blogging community. It is the worst thing that can happen when bloggers go at it between each other. We are striving to be respected and to NOT have authors attack us for our feelings on their book. The worst thing we can do is attack each other, it will only make us weaker as a group.
So, in closing, I would like to say that we all need to get along. If you have a problem with someone, simply talk to them about it and never attack someone. You will only regret it later on when the word gets around and it will get around, it's inevitable. Before you jump the gun or try to make something out of nothing, think about your actions first. For every action there is an equal reaction. Be kind to one another, we have enough to deal with, with attacks from troll commentors and authors that can sometimes be a little over sensitive.
