In my Blogger feed that shows all the lovely blogs I follow, I've been noticing an interesting trend lately. More and more writers and bloggers are blogging less and less. And they're visiting other blogs less and less as well. It's sad because I miss my old friends. But, I hope it means something good, that they're deeply inspired and are too busy writing.
On the flip side, I've noticed more and more book bloggers (reviewers) blogging. I love this trend because I get to read about all the great books out there and it gives me food for my muse. And also because I love book bloggers. They are the life's blood of the industry in many ways. What I don't see is a lot of comments on many of their sites. Authors, writers, I implore you, support your book bloggers, comment on their posts. They give so much back to those of us with books out. And even if you don't have one out, if you're a writer, chances are that you will someday and then you'll see that these wonderful people are worth their weight in gold. A word to the wise: For the love of sanity, always be nice, especially if it is your book. What you write online is chiseled in stone and can destroy you.
What trends are you noticing in blogs? Do you follow book bloggers/reviewers? Do you comment on their blogs?
