Why wouldn't an established Blogger help a beginner?
Now before I get bashed lol I can hear it even before I begin! I am not meaning to offend anybody. I just have a genuine need to get this question answered.
OK so I'm a mom of two kids so I am generally busy but when my time is my own I love to read, and I read a lot. I also love sharing my opinion of those books I read on my blog.. I see my blog as a way of meeting cool new people who share the same interest as I do. Some of my favorite blogs I've happened to come across are
Im A Book shark
The story siren
The nerds wife
To me these are consistent blogs that if I need to find cool new info then there the place to be.
Ran by genuinely nice people (just my opinion from the interaction I've had with each of them)
But while jumping on blog hops and finding dozens of new blogs I've come across something of an "attitude" between established blogs and new blogs. I don't know if that's the right word to call it... I'm just at a loss for a better word.
I don't know how many questions I've seen posted asking for blog help or information...which either gets ignored or the "bigger blogs" are reluctant to give. Its fine if you don't want to help but when it comes to being rude and name calling that's not cool.
NOW I have also seen those blogs which are new, with hardly any book reviews under there belt and might blog today, but disappear for a month. Then they ask why wont authors or publishes send them Advanced copies or books.
It's NOT going to happen! I've been blogging for two years, my blog I still think of as fairly new and small. I would not dream of contacting anybody until I felt confident of my blog!
But putting that aside I don't get why bigger blogs wouldn't want to help those who really want genuine help. The blogs who put work into there blogging.
After all weren't they new once?
Blogging is meant to be fun its meant to be of like minded people sharing interests...if bloggers start getting an I'm better then you mentality it defeats the purpose..
Thats just my opinion.... what's yours?
