Monday Musings: Thoughts Of A Blogger

Monday Musings II

This post has been brewin’ in my head for a minute, and I wasn’t sure, still not sure, how to approach it. But eff it…when have I shied away from speaking my mind lolol.

When I started this blog, it was only intended to post about book releases and do the occasional review. I never expected to befriend these writers. I don’t mean just accept or send a friend request on Facebook or follow them on Twitter. I mean, I did not expect to become friends with many of these authors. I’ve never really had friends in the traditional sense where you connect with a person and you share your innermost thoughts and feelings and shit.

My relationship with a lot of these authors has transformed from author/blogger or author/reader to girlfriends. And I love that! But it’s also skewered my ability to remain impartial and neutral when it comes to running this blog and other social media outlets.

A period of reflection or thought

I could literally blog and tweet and post about my faves all day every day, and the temptation is truly hard to resist because I want everyone to know how wonderful these people are. But I can’t! Well, I could, but that’s not fair because I consider myself to be romance press (snort), and while I aim to be neutral, I also truly believe that (almost) everyone deserves an equal and fair shot. I wonder sometimes if my author friends think I don’t blog or post about them enough. I’ll share a new release or a snippet or a teaser, but I don’t wanna go overboard and be obvious. ‘Cause believe me, every time I see them post on their Facebook walls or their Twitter feeds, I want to share and retweet, even if I’ve already done it.

So I guess this is an open letter to my friends-who happen to be authors. I value our friendship far more than our “working relationship”. I much rather have those private convos than advertising our relationship for everyone else to pick apart and scrutinize. But you now I got you! All you have to do is call on me…I gotchu.
