She is just another person making a living. The thing I find distasteful is the way she is held up as some kind of saint for her pretty mediocre reviews of pretty mediocre books. Sure her site is popular, so is “One Direction”.

That doesn’t even get into the issue that every comment she makes about how hard she works or how she does it because she loves it and not for the money is a pretty obvious lie.

The books in question were “Trust Me, I’m Lying” by Ryan Holiday (pedestrian autobiog) and “I Saw A Peacock With A Fiery Tail”, by Ramsingh Urveti (gimmick)

FWIW, the books in question were this amazingly mediocre business autobiography and this gimmick, neither of which IMO lived up to their writeup. In the second case, I can see that I might just not have “got it” or been the target market, but the Holiday review was pure and simple hype.

As the previous comment states: Maria’s site and her subsequent success is remarkable. At 28, she single-handedly runs one of the most interesting, life-affirming, inspiring and visited site on the internet. She doesn’t write about stupid celebrities, she doesn’t pander to advertisers and she doesn’t utilize common techniques to increase page views with annoying slide shows or story breaks. She writes about what she loves and we get to enjoy and learn from what she loves. To this I say, “Well done, sister.”

I do not believe that there was any malice in Maria’s use of Amazon links. Within 24 hours of the inane bruhaha that erupted, she clarified her usage of the links. Well done, Maria, and thank you. I hope this is now officially over. Let’s get on to the backlash to the backlash.

Frankly, what I can’t get over is the comment about women being happier bloggers. Seriously? Is this a joke? Or is it simply the best you can muster in a passive-aggressive attempt to blatantly disregard Maria’s success and petulantly put her in her place?
