  1. I seriously hate having to pull out last minute like this, but I'm not going to be able to get off work early enough tomorrow to make it. I really tried, but I only just started this job and feel uncomfortable being demanding so early on. I'm so sorry, please don't hate me!
  2. I worry that I would hurt someone's feelings if they saw that I wasn't subscribed to their channel.
  3. That must be it -- I'm BookTube royalty now! But seriously, you're probably right about it being a numbers game. I get ten times as many views on my TBR videos, so it would make sense that ratio of haters would be higher.
  4. Huh, that's interesting...I've never gotten a down vote on a tag video, but they definitely get far fewer views, like maybe half as many. Viewers confuse me!
  5. I don't know if it's just me, but I've noticed that pretty much the only videos I ever get down votes on are my TBR videos. Going into it I assumed that my opinion-y videos would be the ones to ruffle feathers, but nope! Have any of you had that experience with particular types of videos that you've published? I just imagine someone out there like, "UGH WHAT A STUPID TBR HOW DARE U WANT 2 READ THAT BOOK!! BOOOOOO THUMBS DOOOOOWWWNNN !!!"
  6. I don't even want to fight one duck-sized duck. Ducks are JERKS! My brain is glitching at this question, haha..
  7. Mine has always said that I have a 100% female viewership, yet I get a good chunk of comments from people that I know for fact are male. I just assume it's all bullshit.
  8. I totally agree. I also try to temper my glowing reviews with one or two small criticisms that could potentially be an issue for people with different tastes than mine.
  9. I definitely don't take reviewers seriously if they never give negative reviews. To me, saying that you love every book is as valuable as saying that you hate every book. There just has to be a mix in order for your opinions to hold any weight. I think it all comes down to how you frame the criticism, and whether or not you present it in a way that's useful to your viewers. And honestly, what may feel like a negative review for you could be interpreted positively by your viewers. For example, there's a reviewer I follow who will criticize a book for being too action-packed. When I hear her say those words though, I pretty much instantly add the book to my TBR.
