Bloggers And Authors Are NOT Friends, Bloggers And Authors Are NOT Friends…by Sandra Brannan

When I attended the first annual Bloggers Convention in NYC, I had to keep repeating that to myself because it was so hard to remember, since the bloggers were all being so darned friendly! Everyone was helpful and welcoming to this blogging neophyte and debut author (I learned SO much at that convention through the workshops and casual conversations), it made it hard to resist the natural connections that were happening.

I know in every industry there are “rules” to follow. I don’t know how many times I heard the speakers say that there is a line that should not be crossed, a distance that should exist, between bloggers and authors because of the impartiality and professionalism that must be maintained. I understand that, but let me say, it is hard to stay impartial when I meet so many wonderful people! Bloggers provide an amazing service and networking centerpiece (out of the goodness of their hearts and for our common love of books) for so many readers, the true consumers in the book world, and were so gentle with this bull in a china shop that I THANK YOU for teaching me all about the blogosphere and the power within it! You have helped make my book launch very special, and your questions are so creative and fun to answer.

Blog on!
