For awhile, I've been watching the blog hop market and the way things are working and I've decided to stop doing blog hops for a bit. Meaning the Fantasy, Romance Your Hero, and Some Like it Hop blog hops are now cancelled. The others are only going on because I've collected donations for the grand prizes.
Right now, what I see in blog hops are a lot of work, people spamming, over posting, and people cutting and pasting comments. I'd rather us all find a way to read and share books that don't require 4857 rafflecopter steps. I'd rather us talk about what books we like, rather than beg readers to buy our books, and as readers, beg for free books.
I know that this will upset some people, but there are hops weekly with others. Hops that you can join. I'd rather us all spend time not complaining about other hoppers, bloggers, and readers. I'd rather spend time doing what I love in writing and reading, not dealing with people complaining.
So yes, I'm cancelling the blog hops after the Sweaty Nights hops. The next three hops we have I will put my full 100% in to make them amazing, but after that, we're taking a break. I'll come back later if I see a void, but right now, they aren't working.
I wish everyone an amazing time writing and reading, but I don't want our hops to become spam and over promotion.
Thank you for a wonderful year and a half.
