It is the same old story.
Girl meets interesting new blog.
Girl reads blog daily and enjoys it.
Blogger gets publishing deal and turns into a chicken.
"Book book book book book book book." Strut. Crow. "Book! Book book."
It is intensely irritating. The kind of posts which attracted readers in the first the place are now only to be found in the archives, entirely replaced by self promotion and shameless hawking for trade. Fuck right off, I say. I'm not giving some online tosser £12.99 to read their recycled dross when they can't even give me the time of day because they're too busy schmoozing the "A-list" bloggers who also have publishing deals. (Mind you, that said, I don't even give my favourite established authors my hard-earned £12.99, being a massive fan of the public library and second hand book shop. Still, it's fun to be offensive, so fuck off, blog book authors I say, again.)
Maybe it's just me though. Tell me, have you ever purchased a blogger book?
