I'm sure most of you are aware of the drama that has been ensuing from The Story Siren. Many bloggers have chosen to disengage from some of the memes and blogging from the Story Siren, others haven't. I don't want to get to in depth on the matter, I just thought I should make it known where I stand on the matter.

What happened is not okay. I don't agree with it. But I'm not condemning Story Siren either. I know that what she did was wrong but she's apologized and I'm not going to give her grief about it. However I know that this is where people differ on opinions. I have read some and I know that in truth it's hard to unknowingly copy the thoughts of other people. This is one of the many arguments or opinions that have been expressed but I'm not going to go into all of this, but I just wanted to say that I don't like what happened, but I'm going to forgive her and let it blow over. She's learned and I don't think giving her grief about it is going to help.

Because of all the drama I've decided to leave the official meme In My Mailbox. I don't hold any hard feelings against Kristi and her blog, despite this little incident, but I feel like it will be easier to simply have my own "Book Haul".

That's all I have to say on the matter. If you feel differently I'd like to hear your thoughts.
Happy blogging!

  1. I have to say that I agree with you. What she did is completely wrong, but my parents always taught me to forgive so thats what I'll do. I'm not just going to completely abandon her because she made some mistakes. We all have, some are just more grievous than others. She's worked so hard to get where she's at, and while some of her helpful information is plagiarized, her book reviews and author interviews are not. She is still a good book blogger, just one that made a mistake. Do I condone it? No. But I won't condemn her either. I'm happy to know that there is someone else out like me :)

    All the best ♥
