Drama of the Day: Bonfire of the Bloggery

At the Princeton Romance conference Michelle Buonfiglio made comments that seem to smear a lot of romance blogs. Responses were forthcoming from Dear Author, Smart Bitches, Fashionista and Karen Scott. The second generation blog-backs begin... now!

Michelle Buonfiglio was 100% right. There is way too much bitchiness and meanness in the romance blogosphere, and it gives our genre a bad name. She is also 100% correct in that the people who follow those bitchy blogs as entertainment make up a tiny, tiny fraction of the romance audience, yet they manage to make us look bad to the rest of the world.

There's a reason Michelle has a national platform and lots of real financial success. The vast majority of the world doesn't read bitchy blogs, and doesn't want to.

Yep, there's no better way to point out other people's faults than with a glowing halo over your head and your perfumed toes in the shit.
