I really like talking to everyone every day, but it doesn’t give me much time to do everything else I need to get done. It’s something to get a handle on. In the meantime, working on figuring out the best way to do stuff.
For example, I’ve been reading the great advice that I found on lifesfinewhine. Especially the advice about bringing visitors back to your site. I have managed to schedule one post ahead…and I need to look into doing more of that, but for now, I’m rather enjoying the break from “real writing,” though I have a lot of editing to do too, so I need to figure that work into the equation as well.
I don’t spend as much time on Facebook as I used to, but it is a good way to interact with people. For example, the Coffee With Songs By Rie Sheridan Rose event today was a lot of fun. Lots of great comments and Marc Gunn was in fine form. He even sang “Scouring the Shire” for me!
I make sure that my blog posts all appear on Facebook and Twitter, and also share life events and fun stuff as well as other writing news.
I need to do more on Pinterest…mainly because it is a good place to storyboard and collect reference materials. I do have several boards so far. One for my photos pinned by other people. The aforementioned reference materials. And The Conn-Mann board among others.
There isn’t a photo spelling out Twitter, but this is one of the places I feel most successful. My impressions have been going up. It helps that I’ve been posting all the tour stops. We’ll have to see if it keeps up after Friday…
I am always looking for help with marketing and promotion, so if you have any advice or insights, let me know in the comments. 🙂
