Sometimes, when I’m inundated with advice on what I need to do as an author, I want to pull my hair out and go screaming into the night. But like a good girl, I do what I can.
Blog: check (weekly blogs)
Facebook: check (pretty regularly)
Goodreads: check (with author profile and rss feed of my blog)
Shelfari: check (but I don’t go there much if at all)
Amazon profile: check (with rss feed of my blog)
Writer’s loops: check (daily)
Kindle Forums: check (once in awhile – but it’s scary over there!)
Reader’s loops: check (daily digest skim)
Newsletter: check (you can sign up for this here at the website) 🙂
Filed by: check (author page)
Google +: Nope
The next thing: Nope
As you can see, I’ve put my foot down at Twitter. Yes, everyone raves about it, but I simply cannot add one more thing to my writer’s plate, my chest gets tight just thinking about it.
It feels like all this cross media-ing (I’m coining a phrase here) is a huge room of people yelling at each other, with no one listening. What’s the point?
I ask you – WHAT IS THE POINT? Can someone out there give me a reason to add
Twitter? Or anything else?
Convince me of the advantages of Twitter (I don’t mean how many friends you have and how often you tweet a day, but actual results, sales spikes etc. from your twitters) and I’ll give you a romance book. (You’ll have your choice from four romances by various authors.)
Until next week, make it agreat one!
