Question - What have you learned about Book Blogging that you did not know before about the publishing industry?
I have learned that the publishers are very nice if you just ask them for ARCs and such. It seemed like such a foreign concept, and i was afraid to do it at first for fear of rejection and ridicule but now i know that even if it is a no, there is always someone who will say yes.
I've never yet went out of my way to directly contact an author to ask for a review copy.. I'm still working up the courage! That's great that you do though :) I try not to take rejection too personally because at the end of the day I still have a pile of great books I haven't read yet and instantly all the negative things are forgotten :) Nice FF post!!
