I have to say that I was pretty surprised by the plethora of undesirable reviews on this book. I can’t agree that this guide is any product of bad writing, uninteresting content, and/or irrelevance. I would think that one wouldn’t want to purchase a book called The Etiquette of Social Media unless they were genuinely interested in what this author had to say on the subject, but based on some of the negativity and borderline cruelty making its way into the reviews, I’m inclined to think that the very trolls this book warns against are the ones reviewing it. That being said, I never would have picked up this book if I wasn’t asked to review it because I have my own unique Social Media strategy and thus far it has worked for me, but for those who don’t, I think in some ways it offers up useful information.
I was thinking about this recipe yesterday (I don’t remember why), and it was funny because my dude was making coffee this morning and he touched my leg and was all like oh shit sorry I think I just got coffee on your leg and I was like oh its actually good for your skin and he was like yeah I totally knew that boyfriend win!
My issue with memoirs is this: they are boring. They are not boring because they are boring, but because people who are typically writing memoirs are not writers and all of the editing in the world could not make them unboring.
unless you have experienced both, the likelihood is that you don’t.
like everyone else, I’ve seen the memes and typography going around facebook that provide hope to those that are going through some really tough shit in their lives, like we all do. they boast the fact that the universe is testing us, because without darkness, we would not know light, and I genuinely want to know what people actually think about it. these elements of hope are very popular in the interwebs, especially for authors, and I play around with the very same themes in my latest book, so you would think that the general belief is that yes, it is absolutely true, we would not know what pure happiness feels like if we hadn’t before experienced the crushing pain that is its enemy.
