Twitter Roundup 09.20.2012

It's been a while since I've done one of these link roundup posts, probably because I've been tweeting posts I like instead. So I thought it'd be nice to collect some of the links I've been sharing recently, in case you missed them and might find one or two of them interesting as well.


So yeah, these are just a few of the posts I enjoyed in the past few weeks. Hope you find these posts worthwhile and thought-provoking! :)

  4. I don't know how I feel about niceness - I definitely appreciate honesty over fake nice. I feel very constrained with book reviews as a fellow writer, like the professional thing to do is not say anything at all and only praise books I like.

  5. Niceness is not very high on my list of values, so I can't really relate to the "if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything" sentiment. I do think it is possible to give professional negative reviews, but it certainly is a lot easier to stick with positive ones. I did struggle with writing negative reviews for a while, but ultimately decided that, as long as I wasn't too scathingly insulting in my negative reviews, the risk of backlash was small enough that I could allow myself to express my opinions. But everyone's opinion on negative reviews and their risk/benefit analysis would be different. Writing only positive reviews (or none at all) would definitely be the safest choice!
