To Rate or Not to Rate

I was wondering how others felt about rating reviews.  When I first started blogging I never rated and I felt like I had more lee-way with what I said.   I have been using a rating system for the last few months and I feel like I am reviewing to justify the rating vs. actually giving my thoughts on the book.  I am interested to see what everyone thinks regarding this, since I wonder if it is actually helpful to have the rating attached to the review and I need to just figure out a way to merge…See More

Non-YA Bloggers

I am in no way shape or form against YA or those that read solely YA but I was was wondering where the rest of the non YA bloggers are!  Romance and YA seem to be pretty popular blogs and I tend to not dip in that pool, although I have been known to be lured on occasion to the YA side.I am looking for more blogs out there that are either a mix or more in the NON-YA category.  I have met some great net friends and bloggers in both but looking to trade followings or links or buttons or whatever…See More

Like for Like is Useless, Link for Link is Priceless

In Google's eyes at least, follow for follow and like for like carry almost no weight. However, every site that links back to your page lends your site more weight, thats SEO. Blogrolls that link back to your page and vice versa, are what the Google bots pay attention to. Each blog that links to yours becomes part of a web that will push you up in page ranking on Google and increase your traffic.So, let's do it! If you think my website (a show of…See More

Updated look need input please!

Hi Everyone!Just looking for some input/feedback.  I know I am relatively new to blogging still (i think a year is still young) and not looking for a follow for a follow just some help..So I changed the template on my blogger account to the dynamic template and wanted some feedback.  One of the biggest things I have noticed is some inconsistency with internet explorer and its ability to support the view (ie. Things will go missing –augh).. plus I am looking for more input on style, content and…See More

Hi Amber, my name is Larry Rodness and I am inquiring about receiving a review on my newest YA novel entitled, "Perverse", published by Itoh Press in both print and electronic formats. Synopsis as follows:

19 year old Emylene Stipe is a 2nd generation Goth who, like every teenage girl, is trying to find her place in the world. One night she comes upon an old painting in an antique store and is compelled to purchase it. When she brings it home an image of a young woman appears in the sketch and then magically materializes in her apartment. Emylene nick-names her 'Poinsettia' and they soon become fast friends. But Poinsettia has an ulterior motive for her sudden and strange intrusion into her host's life which causes Emylene to question her whole belief system.
If there is interest I can forward an E Pub or PDF.
