Social Media is has become such a big part of the writing life and in a very short time. At first it was daunting to me, now it’s as if I’ve always Tweeted, commented on fb, done reviews on Goodreads. How quickly we adapt. I guess we have to if we are writing books and hoping someone will read them.
What I’ve found is that as I connect with people, there are some that become a part of my Media Life and stay there. Some I wish lived next door. Others come and go. Some I can’t relate to.
I’ve been amazed at how personalities come across the distance in the words people choose, in the way they respond to posts or comments and in the subjects they write about.
Jane Friedman posted The Secret to Twitter and verified what I’d suspected all along. You can’t pretend to be who you aren’t. You have to be yourself and that means not everyone is going to like you, but a lot will.
So thanks to all of you stop by and stay connected. I appreciate you a lot and the ones who are my regulars are the ones I visit all the time. We’re a diverse group, but interesting and I never would have met any of you without Social Media.
