TMST: Tagging Author in Reviews - Do or Don't?


Tell Me Something Tuesday is a weekly discussion post on Rainy Day Ramblings where Rainy discusses a wide range of topics from books to blogging. 

Tagging authors in reviews

Easy answer....no. I will post the reviews in Goodreads, here, sometimes at Blodeuedd's blog, sometimes Amazon/Barnes and Noble (if I remember lol), Netgalley (if applicable), Audible (if applicable). If I get a book from a publisher/author and they ask me to post on some website or wherever YES I will do that. I will never tag on Twitter or FB. If they tag themselves or I get tagged by a publisher/tour host, then whatever. 

Why? Well - I do all this posting and if they reallllllllly want to read my thoughts then they will search for it.. My thoughts are my own. Sometimes I may not like a book and it is MEAN to tag them in that. It's like tagging someone in an ugly photo. It's mean and rude. If I was an author I wouldn't want to be tagged. 

NOW. I will tag an author in Instagram if I'm taking a photo of their book in a cute way or whatever. That is just showing how much I love the cover or whatever.

I do it but only if the review is good I confess

I think that is okay. I just feel weird contemplating tagging them in a bad review.

Blodeuedd said...

Yes on the insta! That is just love

Like you, I don't tag for an okay or negative review, but I do tag them and the publisher for positive ones. It takes the place of having to let them know that I got to their review. :)

B, insta!

Sophia, I can see that. IDK. I feel weird not tagging negative and then tagging positives.

Nope. Not any longer. ;-)
