Feature and Follow # 22

 

 

Confess your blogger sins! Is there anything as a newbie blogger that you’ve done, that as you gained more experience you were like — oops?

 

My biggest newbie blogger sin was exactly like Kathryn's Inbox featured blog today at Parajunkee:

So bless me, fellow bloggers, I have sinned. I have used images that I skimmed from Google images. While I wasn't passing the work off as my own or anything, I still have failed to give credit where credit is due. I was new once upon a time, and I've learned to either give credit or use my own images where I can. So at least I've learned from my mistakes!

I ask humbly for forgiveness!  

I've also learned to make sure I state very clearly what kind of books I review. For example, if someone wants me to review a book and it is clearly listed I don't, for example, review science fiction anymore just for this very reason. If I want real science fiction, I'll go the greats, like Ray Bradbury and Ursula Le Guin. Sadly, I still get requests to read science fiction from people who think they ARE on this level. 

I think that was a rant. But anyway, it's something I've learned not to do!
