NetGalley: I’m not drowning yet
I joined NetGalley in 2011 or 2012 when I first started book blogging and at the time I figured that given my small blog I wouldn’t get any of these requests accepted so I may as well request a lot in hopes of getting one.
That didn’t happen. I got a lot. So much so that I think I read and reviewed about 14 of them before drowning and ignoring the site.
Since I’ve been taking book blogging a lot more seriously this year now I’m done with education and settled in at work I thought it would be no harm if I revisited the site.
The first thing I did was cull the existing books there. To do this I went down the list of books I had been accepted for and compared to whether I was still interested in them or if I still had access to them. For those that were a no I left feedback to remove them off my shelf.
That felt great.
Though I must admit the, uh, shelf was still pretty full.
I then requested a few.
