Blogging by Experience

with 4 comments

My blog is titled:  bibliotherapy4adoption.wordpress.com.  I retired from infant adoption agency work in 2008 and started the blog in June, 2010.  I post my reviews of adoption related books, movies and television programs.  I have so far written when the mood strikes but I want to blog more frequently as a result of a blog challenge!  I keep a list of subjects I plan to write on if / when things are slow.

Initially, I double-posted my blog on FaceBook, but comments in FB unfortunately do not appear on the blog.  My favorite post (and the one that garnered the most responses) was “In a Fog. . .”  about a dream I’d had that left me pondering aspects of my adoptions work.  It’s also one of the shortest!

The most controversial was about a book by a birth father, which I also posted on Amazon. He read my review on Amazon, then began to haunt me on my blog. My point: that his story was important to tell, was lost to him when I said his book would have been better received had he spent time fine-tuning it; I could have been more diplomatic.  I learned that you have to write knowing the author may read your review!  And might misinterpret what you believe you said!

  1. Awesome post!! Looking forward to more and to getting to know you a little over the next couple of weeks!! WRITE ON!

  2. Yeah, Beth – you conquered Mister Linky! Love your point that someone could misinterpret “what you belive you said.” Too true! I only saw the teaser, but there was a story about a woman who was sued for posting a bad customer review online. Will have to go look for it now. I have to guess there was more to the story … that perhaps she defamed the proprieter in her “review.” Good stuff. Hope you’ll KEEP posting!
