Armchair BEA- Relationships
I have been extremely lucky to have good working relationships with several publishers and publicists, as well as some authors, that I have maintained over time. I must also say that I have lost a few, for reasons unknown. I have tried to read in a timely manner, print honest reviews, and I always, always thank them!
Other bloggers, not so much.....I have tried to Tweet with no replies (I assume I get lost in the shuffle), I visit many blogs, I leave comments (the life blood of many bloggers) and I think you have to be polite and respectful to everyone.
When I started blogging, there were not nearly as many Book Bloggers out here in the blogosphere, and I had better relationships with my fellow bloggers. I think it is like going from a small high school to a big college, you try to make friends, but there is not enough time. I know this probably sounds needy, and maybe it is...I need advice on how to make my relationships better within our community.
As I have been reading the responses on sites, there is much good advice and I am going to attempt to follow some of it.
Enough whining....I need to go and do some visiting and leave some comments! Maybe even make some new friends!!
