As an author, I am constantly reminded and urged to have a social media presence. Now when it comes to social media, the big three come right to mind: Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Three very different platforms that are all very important and require a lot of time to do 'it right'. I find myself scrambling a bit trying to figure out how to come up with interesting content for all three platforms. Just the other day, I received a message from Facebook that my posts were now 'more visible' because I had, somewhat by chance, consistently posted engaging content. Needless to say, I was happy that I had managed to figure out at least one of the platforms. I think the thing I enjoy most about my social media pages is seeing how people react or comment on my posts. What we have in common, mostly our love for books and reading, and the fact that they believe I have something to say. It is not about agreeing but sharing a point of view. Everyone may not understand my enthusiasm for all things Jane Austen, but that's ok just as long as we all share a love of reading and realize the importance of it in our lives. So, I am still in the process of figure out how to make social media work for me and have the time for all three platforms so that readers know about me and my books. I guess with everything else......it's a work in progress.
Until next time.....
