Slapdash Sunday is a day for your proverbial week ‘leftovers.’ Is there something you wanted to say, but just forgot? Is there something you want to write about, but isn’t worth a whole page? Do you have a random thought, funny or otherwise that needs to be written down?
That is what Slapdash Sunday is for!
I have been reflecting a lot over the past couple of weeks as I wind down my first full year of book blogging and reviewing and gearing up for the new year. I have made so many new friends, which I am thankful for, have had so much fun visiting others and their blog’s, adding way too many tbr books to my personal bucket list because of every one’s reviews, learned a lot regarding the computer (that in itself is a miracle) and am totally amazed that people actually read my blog, and for that, you have my deepest gratitude. I have learned quite a bit and am anxious to learn more. I hope that I have conducted this blog with integrity, honesty, credibility, laughter (mainly at myself) and with proper etiquette. Which brings me to the Slapdash Sunday Discussions. Next week will be Part 2: Changes.
I have enjoyed every minute of this new community that has accepted me. And I hope I have never offended anyone or that I did not follow proper etiquette. I tried to treat others as to how I would like to be treated. Which brings me back to Etiquette. I have had a couple of incidents this past year that have bothered me and wonder if you have ever had similar situations. One was seeing a phrase that I always use hijacked and used for someone’s creation. Now I know I don’t have a copyright on phrases, but was still taken aback. Another one, which really did a number on me, and honestly took the fun out of blogging for a few weeks and even caused a few tears. It came from another party, not a blogger, where my credibility, honesty and future intentions were questioned and had false accusations said about me, to the point of being X’d out, and bordering on slander. I know and understand that I can’t change anyone’s behavior except my own, so I want to make sure I never engage in poor blogging etiquette and to learn the how- tos of handling that type of conduct, if it occurs in the future.
So my questions are: Have you ever had similar situations? How do you handle being on the receiving end of poor etiquette? Do you have certain rules that you feel should be followed? What do you think is poor blogging etiquette? Would love to hear your thoughts on this issue. Let’s have a Slapdash Discussion!!!

My reviews are short in words. I conducted a poll and the majority said they would rather read short reviews with detailed information. My opinion is that a book will get more attention with this format as compared to a lengthy review where the reader would lose interest.
I am accepting books from authors, publishers and/or agents for my review and/or honest opinion. Please click on REVIEW POLICY (at top of blog) for complete listing.
