Up North asked:
Interested in how other view things . . . where do you draw the line drawn between spamming and self-promotion? I participate in an online reading club and there are some members who are doing more of the former than the latter. And, after reading some messages on this board it appears the line has gotten even thinner.
Up North, in response to your initial question, I'll explain what works for me. I have no problem with a person promoting themselves as long as they are equally as active in posting other things related to the discussions going on, sharing other information, etc. I have a problem when you ONLY hear from a person who stops through to talk about themselves, their book, their services, their blah blah blah...
It would depend on what type of group it is though. As far as book clubs go, it's VERY annoying when questions are posed as to "What are you Reading" and authors come back with the titles to THEIR books...that's tacky.
