Today I thought I would offer some advice to bloggers based on what I have been seeing a lot of in new bloggers these days.
1) If you have under 50 followers your primary goal should be reviewing books you have and getting more followers. This is not the time to start hounding publishers for ARC's.
2) If someone gets and ARC before you (even if you were promised a copy) calm down. There is no need to flip out. A lot of the publisher's I have talked to send based on merit. It is more important for the bloggers with a bigger following to get a copy of the book than the person who has 20 followers. I myself dont have as many followers as some and I just feel grateful for every book I get.
3) If you want a book ask the publisher. Authors get tired of request after request AND they only get a limited supply of books. The difference would be if you know an author personally.
4) If you are confused ASK! Us older bloggers (I've been blogging for 2 years) are not scary. We love answering your questions and sharing the love of reading. If you need help please contact us!
Anyways that's all I wanted to say for now :) LOVE YOU ALL!
