Episode 110 – Messy Monday Pimps or Hoes

Since becoming a blogger I have often wondered if I’m appreciated within the book world. Sometimes I feel like I am being taken advantage of.

Bloggers work very hard to put out quility reviews for books but we do we get out of it? I personally enjoy blogging so I guess you can say it makes me happy. What I don’t enjoy is the behind the scene bullshit that goes on.

I don’t like PR companies dictating when I should do something all because they sent me a free ebook. I don’t like being “blacklisted” because I didn’t post or review something in their timeframe.

PR companies get paid from the authors. Bloggers do not. Bloggers blog because we want to. Right now, for me, blogging is starting to feel like a unpaid job. I’m being pimped out. I’m tired of being used and I thought it would be interesting to hear my beautiful sister’s opinion on the matter. Take a listen.

Remember to follow all things messy. . .

    asking a blogger to review my stuff gives me complete bubble guts for this very reason. Unless you’re a big name, even then pubs should just be offering an advanced copy of the book and nothing more. Publishers be doin the most!

      I don’t mind doing reading and reviewing for author who ask me, I prefer it that way TBH. I find PR companies to be pushy and overbearing. The harassment they post online is even worse if you don’t rate or review a book the way the want you to.
