I’m putting up the image to show solidarity with my fellow bloggers. But I’ve decided it would make no sense to stop writing for Heroes and Heartbreakers in an attempt to show that bloggers should be valued and respected, because they’ve always made me feel valued and respected as a blogger.
And it makes little sense to stop blogging/reviewing just for fun, because that’s how I express myself and connect with other readers. So basically I’m going to do what I always do… review when I’ve made a commitment, and when it simply takes my fancy.
I will definitely be thinking long and hard about future reviewing commitments though, and what authors and publishers I want to support. Which is messed up in itself, because I don’t want that to be part of what I’m doing. I want it to be about the book and my reaction to the book, not the author or the publisher. I don’t want to be a part of the financial equation.
Maybe reviewing only dead authors is the way to go.
