I’ve always thought that the name of this blog was fairly self-explanatory. I could have chosen a much funkier name when I started blogging. You know, something like, My So Called Life, or Hell Hath No Fury, that kind of shite.

But I didn’t. I chose a name that would indicate the kind of blog this is. Somehow, people still seem to get confused. Go figure.

I have an opinion on absolutely everything, and I’m not afraid to say what I think, this generally means that people know where they stand with me. Some people think I suck great big donkey balls, some people think I’m ok. That’s just life.

My love for romance books doesn’t necessarily extend to the authors of romance books. If you’re an author, and you act like a dick, I will vote with my money. I find it hard to read books by authors who have annoyed me in the past. Some people can look beyond an author’s online personality. I can’t. End of.

People will sometimes not agree with my viewpoints, I get that, and to some extent, I welcome differing opinions, but you need to know that if you come on here to diss the blog, don’t bother, because invariably, you wont like what I have to say to you.

If you’re an author, and I snark about one of your book covers, please don’t tell me that my opinion is wrong, and certainly don’t bother telling me that it’s hurtful to diss, because the artist sweated blood and tears trying to make it perfect. I really don’t give a flying scrotum.

I’m not afraid to tell people to fuck off, if I think they deserve it. It rarely ever comes to that, but I thought it was important to highlight this point.

I rarely involve myself in fights on other people’s blog. I’m much more likely to bring any issues to my own blog, rather than bleeding all over somebody else’s. That’s just bad form.

I’m not a professional reviewer, this is something that I do for fun. My negative reviews aren’t written with the sole purpose of pissing authors off, I’m far too busy for that shit.

If I review your book, and I’m really mean about it, either say nothing, or do a Daisy, because otherwise you’ll just come off looking like a twat.

If I spend my hard earned money on a book, and it’s crap, I’m entitled to say so, and no, I don’t have to be mindful of the feelings of the author, because guess what, I still paid for the bloody thing. Also remember, it’s just one opinion, and means very little in the great scheme of things.

If you’re not familiar with my blog and you surf in because somebody else gave you my URL, you need to check yourself before you come waving your shitty stick at me. I‘m likely to highlight your actions, and give you the type of headache that you could well do without. It doesn’t take much to become the subject of one of my blog posts.

I’m not in the habit of apologising for other people’s misconceptions. If you feel that I’ve dissed you in some way, and you want to discuss it, I suggest that you e-mail me privately. I promise, it wont become a blog topic, unless you give your express permission for me to make it public.

If you post a comment and I don’t respond, don’t take it personally, I’m a fairly lazy blogger. It’s not you. I promise.

Finally, if you really hate me, and you hate my blog, I suggest that you visit other blogs. There are plenty to choose from.

    Well, K, that’s told me – if I didn’t know that before.

    I come here because you’re hugely entertaining and you say the things that I don’t have the guts to.

    It’s kinda like lighting the touchpaper and standing well back.

    Aw, Karen. I love your blog. It’s always entertaining. I especially love the way you skillfully use “suck great big donkey balls” and “flying scrotum”. LOL.
    As for reviews, hey, I’m still scared shitless, but what the hell, you take the bad with the good, right? I’m just LUCKY that you’ve liked my books so far. Who knows? You might hate my next one.

    OT..Now I know why they say “Bend It Like Beckham.” The goal he made at the World Cup is all over the news this morning. *g* I understand its the first goal he’s made in the last 15 months? What’s up with that? *g* He’s partying too much or what?

    Hi Dawn! Have I told ya how much I love you lately? *g*

    Hi Millennia, I read about the MJ Rose snub. Doesn’t surprise me in the least.

    Beverly, He has scored from free kicks, just not for England! He does it mostly for his team Real Madrid.

    And I’m sure even if I hated your next book, you’d still be ladylike about it, and take it on the chin. *g*

    karen hon you are more than welcome to tell me to go fuck myself but really stop it. Your blog, there is no need to explain yourself.

    If people like it cool, if they are too stupid to read the title and get it there is the nifty profile that explains it.

    And if they are still to stupid to understand, delete the email. Really the people that toss their hair and stomp off never to return, will more often than not return to bitch again another day. So whatever floats their boat cha know *g*.

    Ummm, do you have a picture you can show me of a “flying scrotum”? Ha, darlin’, that’s why I visit your blog, you have such a way with words 🙂

    LMFAO! Flying scrotum… you’ll come off looking like a twat… LOL It’s too much. My eyes are tearing up. You crack me up, Karen. Seriously. And if I ever come off looking like a twat, please feel free to tell me to fuck off. LMFAO!

    Karen’s blog, in my eyes, is a bit like shock radio. If you don’t like it, CHANGE THE CHANNEL. Nobody’s sticking a gun in our mouths and making us visit her blog. If you’re only interested in being stroked, start your own blog, or imaginary friend, or whatever turns your crank. But as she said, the title of her blog says it all. Don’t like it? Don’t come.

    This latest brew-ha-ha reminds me of when people start whining about “their rights”. When that happens I always come back with “your rights end where mine begin.” This is never so true as with Karen’s Blog. Let me repeat that: Karen’s Blog. She warns us right up front that’s it’s HER Blog and she says what she wants to. On Her blog. If what she says doesn’t appeal to you, don’t read it. That’s your right, to move your cursor to the little X in the upper right hand corner and click out of Karen’s Blog. I for one love Karen’s Blog. Her opinions usually mirror my own; she just has the boobs to say what I only wish I could say.

    You’re the bees’ knees, Karen Scott, and you can take that shit to the bank.

    Quite honestly Karen, I don’t think you have to justify what you say on this site. It is your site. There is no need for any other explanation.

    As for the reviews, I don’t read them, but agree with your logic. If you bought it with your hard earned money, then you have the right to say anything about it. For those authors out there, they should know that scrutiny is coming when they have something available for the public to buy and be entertained by. If they can’t handle criticism, then they shouldn’t be in the game. Though comments should be kept to the work and not become a personal attack on the author. (Unless of course they attack you personally.)

    Anyway, keep doing what you want to do on this blog with no explanations, because it’s your opinion.

    Man, duck when the flying scrotum are on the loose and eww on shitty sticks.

    You have to shrug about this kind of stuff. Opinions are not horrible! If people don’t like your opinion, there are 9 million other blogs out there.
