Oops, sorry. But I still can't believe how TOTALLY happy I feel at having found these books.
On to the post for today. Yep, I do have one. :)
Do we need social media? What say all of you?
I think we do. My reasoning for my quick response is this: (it was quick, you'll just have to believe me.)
A. Connecting with other writers, agents, editors=learning as much as we can about the publishing world.
B. When that GLORIOUS day arrives and we have our baby (BESTSELLER) in our hands, we think book sales. A lot of authors have blogged about how many sales come from social media connections or folks that heard about their books from social media sites.
C. Uh, my pal Tess recently joined Facebook. WHOA! http://tesshilmo.blogspot.com/2010/08/how-to-make-book-trailer-1.html#comments;) BTW, she's doing a month post on book trailers. Pop over. LEARN.
Which is better? Facebook, Twitter, Stumbleupon, LinkedIn? Or are they all about the same? I am on Twitter and Facebook. My blog is where I most like to connect, but Facebook is faster.
Do these sites take up too much of your time? Promise yourself to only spend x amount of time on them. The writing is THE most important thing. And why connect if you're not writing? What say all of you?
Short post, but sometimes shorter is better.
