Amazon, Goodreads or Blog?

Question for publishers and publicists (and authors):

Are reviews at Goodreads and Amazon as valuable as blog posts?

Let’s say, hypothetically, someone didn’t want to write blog posts anymore. Would publishers send said person books if they posted reviews on Goodreads, Amazon and/or other assorted retail establishments or social media channels?

Writer's Block, Book Burnout and Podcasts

I periodically get in funks where nothing quite seems to “work” for me and I find myself reading three or four books at one time looking for something that will connect or get the juices flowing again; something that compels me to write because I want to get my opinion down rather than writing because I haven’t written anything here for awhile.
