Thoughts on Social Networks
So how many social networks are you a part of?
Let's see, there's
Blogger (I have four blogs here; 3 individual and one group)
Amazon (three Amazon connect blogs)
MySpace (three myspace pages, each w/blog)
Facebook (only one of those, whew)
Goodreads (so far only one--as Allyson James, but I monitor Jennifer Ashley's page too, since I'm she)
Now I'm thinking of getting on Twitter.
It's getting ridiculous.
I like Facebook a bit because I can post a short update, and not worry about an entertaining, pithy blog entry. Plus I can put all my info, book covers, videos, etc. on one page (not six).
I like the Amazon plog, because I can post updates relevant to books there, plus link to them.
MySpace is getting unweildy imho--some pages take forever to load, and I have a super-duper high-speed cable modem. On the other hand, they're pretty and I can put all my info on one page.
Blogger is good as a running newsletter. Thinking of interesting posts is a bit of a trick. I like to save my creativity for my novels.
I hope in future to streamline all this to one page, one update for all my books/pseudonyms.
I have a designer working on overhauling my websites in prep for upcoming series. There will probably be an updates/blog portion. Looking forward to that.
For now, I'll run around posting on twelve social networks, my website, and my newsletter. :-)
