Yeah, I know I'm supposedly on vacation from blogging for a bit. I guess I just can't stay away.
So I've had some blog-related thoughts tumbling around my head lately. (Who am I kidding? I constantly think about blogging!) And one that keeps coming up is blogger pet peeves. Now, this post isn't really about that, but it lead to the thought for this post and I'd like to hear what you all about it:
So what do you think about book countdown widgets?
You know the ones I'm talking about. Those things you see posted in sidebars all over the blogosphere that countdown the days, hours, and minutes until a book is released. So really, I want to know what you think of them. Are the cool? Stupid? What about seeing them used in blogs? Do you like to see them attached to reviews of that particular book? In the sidebar? At the bottom of the blog? How many should you have? How many is too many? Do you even pay attention to them? In what context should they be used on a blog (i.e. if a blogger is looking forward to that book, if the blogger has reviewed/will review that book from an ARC, if the author was a guest on the blog, etc.)?
Leave your thoughts in the comments below. Maybe we'll get some discussion going on this one.
