What do you think of the book blogging community?

Too many blogs to count have done questionnaires recently on what they, as bloggers, could do to improve, and to find out what people like and dislike about their blogs.

My questionnaire is going to be a little different.

Over this past year I've noticed the blogging community seems to be turning very bitter. It's suddenly overrun with competitive people who seem to be fighting for the title of 'best blogger in the whole entire universe.' Twitter has been packed full of arguments between bloggers, and there are even friendships turning sour as blog jealousy arises.

It needs to stop. 

The blogging community never used to be like this. It was a lovely, happy place where we would congratulate each other on reaching a blogger achievement or getting a highly anticipated ARC instead of getting nasty.

Where's all that blogger love gone? This is also why I started the Blog Notes Project which, yes, will become a regular thing, I'm sure a few of you will be happy to hear.

So, here is my questionnaire. Whether you're a blogger or a blog reader, I want to know what you think of our community. If a good amount of people take interest and complete the questionnaire, I will be sharing the information at a later date, although all answers will be kept completely anonymous.


  1. Brilliant idea Amber, just submitted my questionnaire!

  2. Again, this is a really good idea, Amber! I love the Blog Notes Project, and I really love that it's going to be a regular thing. It's true that there has been a little bitterness going around and it does really need to stop.

  3. Submitted, another great idea Amber.

    Somehow I manage to miss the drama every time - it seems to float right past me without me noticing!

  4. I just discovered your blog and I absolutely love it!

  5. Just done it - I look forward to seeing the results ;)

  6. Just submitted it! I haven't been commenting for a while(exams) but I've seen so many tweets about the Blog Notes project and think it's a really great idea. We need more blogger-love!

    -Sophie :)

  7. Done all ready hopeful this really can not wait blog notes project .
