Should bloggers & authors discuss politics? Does that turn you off to a blogger or an authors books if they tweet/post about their political positions or do you appreciate their passionate point of view?
Honestly, I don’t think I’ve read a book blog that contained a political discussion, let alone one where their politics made me uncomfortable. I do honestly appreciate people’s passion, but I do not appreciate disrespect. One of the most challenging things for me this particular political season has been the decision of so many on social media to be disrespectful. Name calling, mudslinging- none of those have a place in a political discussion.
