Follow Friday Four Fill-In Fun - 7/17/15

    Feeling Beachie 

    Love this meme....I hope you can join in the fun.  

    Each week, Feeling Beachie lists four statements with a blank for you to fill in on your own blogs.  

    The statements:
    1. Leaving someone out is ________.
    2. Blogging is _________.
    3. Asking about____is_____.
    4. Would you post a ______?

    My Answers:

    1.  Leaving someone out is something I do not like to do.
    2.  Blogging is one of my favorite things to do.
    3.  Asking about personal things is difficult for me.
    4.  Would you post a negative review on your blog?



    1. Good answers. On number 4, I used to hesitate with the lower reviews. But, another blogger mentioned that we're responsible to our readers; not the author. That's not to say it is OK to tear down an author's work, but I usually try to give things I liked as well as disliked.

      1. I have given 3 out of 5 stars. If I have to give lower, I just don't read the book. :)

        Too many good books out there to continue with something you don't like. :)

        Thanks for always stopping and commenting, Diane.

      2. I haven't posted a review in quite awhile, but when I did post reviews only once did I really not find anything to like about the book and I said was just awful.

      3. This comment has been removed by the author.

      4. I just won't read something I don't like. :)

        Thanks for stopping, Patricia.

    2. I don't like to give negative reviews... I also don't like to read books I don't like....

      1. Negative reviews serve no purpose. I think folks can tell themselves just by reading a few pages. :)

        I mostly give a 4 or 5 out of 5. If a book gets at 3 from me, then it was bad, but not bad enough to put down. :)

        Thanks for stopping, Hilary.

    3. I have no problem people asking me personal questions, IF our relationship is such that I know it's a genuine discussion and not just being a nosey busy-body. But I am less likely to ask others something personal.
      If did not like a product or service, I would absolutely give my honest opinion on my blog. However, I would be discussing that with the company first too so that they had a chance to give feedback.

      1. Thank you for your wonderful comments, Rory.

        Thanks for stopping by.

    4. I haven't come across this blog hop before, it looks like fun, so I might join in one of these days :)

      I agree with the first three of your statements, although I do try not to post a negative review about a book, as it is purely and simply my own opinion and will be completely different to anyone else's.

      In a reviewI generally tend to focus on the writing style and storyline development, rather than my opinion about the finished book and I will generally award 4 star ratings as an average.


      1. It is fun. I am glad you found it through my mistake of a link. :)

        Thanks for commenting and stopping, Yvonne.

    5. Thanks for sharing your answers and for visiting my Friday post.
