#BookBlogWriMo: Least Favorite Thing About Book Blogging - Day Sixteen
Least Favorite Thing About Book Blogging
You'll see me bitch about this until the end of time, but non-prepared posts. If I sign up for a tour...and someone is being PAID by an author to organize this type of exposure...it would be very nice to not have to look up any of the information be it: cover, blurb, author info, author links, and buy links. It takes up so much time, and may I remind the tour peeps...they're being paid for it. We are not. Courtesy, please.
Sorry. Okay, this wasn't probably intended to be a bitch fest. So I should probably just shut up. But, that is a biggy. And no html posts. That is saddening too sometimes. And...not receiving information until really late at night before the post is to go live the next day.
Along those exact same lines, building posts for the blog when they aren't sent properly is super annoying and time consuming.
I also hate when I have to send an email to a writer saying that his or her novel didn't work for us. I know how hard it is to put your writing out in public and I hate to disappoint, but at the same time, I will not promote via review a novel I don't like.
