I know this has been batted around quite a bit, but I have yet to get my two cents in..
This rant is about the so called in crowd of bloggers and the rest of us. Does anyone else feel there is a group, the elite, who rule the book blogging world? You know who you are, the highly energetic organizers of everything from tours to challenges and most of all the Book Bloggers Convention? The same people who spend so much time chattering on Twitter, but only with each other. I have tried to chat my way into some conversations, only to be ignored, and left feeling left out.
What is the protocol for hurt feelings? A big bandaid? This is just like High School all over again, the cheerleaders won't let me sit at their lunch table. I am invisible again. I have thousands of books and I can't even buy my way into this elusive group. Maybe we need to form an invisible elite?! Some days I feel like giving up the ghost and closing the laptop for good, but then I read something wonderful and I just have to share. I started blogging in the hope that I might have something to say, and that someone might just want to read it...I know I have some loyal followers, and I thank you for coming..
I will quietly carry on, and hope that the blogging world opens up just a little for all of us that do not feel included. This community is for everyone, not just a select few.
