In your opinion, do you think that the book blogging world has its 'in' crowd and therefore and 'out' crowd? Do you think the 'in' crowd is just as deserving of its 'in' status as high school cheerleaders, or do you think it is through hard work that they come to their deserved position?
Some certainly have an advantage of living by book meccas, or having more time to post, comment, and beautify their blog. But is that all it is? With our interactions growing from twitter, blogging, glue, vlogging, and commenting this is going to stand out more and more in the community. Personally I do feel like there are idolized book bloggers. The real question is, are they rightfully idolized, or are they not? My opinion? Well, (shhhhh don't say anything) but their reviews are no better than anyone elses. There are so many good reviews and posts out there. If this isn't about book reviews than what is it about? I don't know, but to me it does sometimes seem like a popularity contest.
How do you choose which blogs you love? Humor? Reviews? Clever ideas?
What do you think?
