The book blogging community has been super supportive of this blog since its inception. In turn, I try my best to return the favor by reading their blog posts and Tweeting links when I feel the post has merit and is well written.
I came across this badge today on the blog: Hello Chick Lit
so I thought I would display it here (and permanently on my sidebar) as a way of testifying that I DO SUPPORT other book bloggers.
Why am I proclaiming this now?
Because I am continually being ‘tagged’ with blogging memes, blog hops, and blogger awards. I have stated in my “About/Policies” page that I do not wish to participate in these, along with my reasons why.
Lately, I’ve begun to feel that I’m letting the side down by not participating. I’ve begun to feel that I’m not a ‘team player’ if I don’t go along with these. But really, they make me uncomfortable. I especially don’t like the whole ‘tagging’ aspect despite the fact that I am flattered to be tagged or awarded. Is it an integral part of book blogging that I must take part?
I love ALL book bloggers! They share the love of books and THAT is what it is all about.
Do I HAVE to participate in tagging memes, blog hops, and blogger awards to be a good book blogger? Any and all comments will be gratefully appreciated. Please weigh in on this topic.
