That is the sound I hear all day long. The keys on my computer are always clicking and it’s not always about writing.
Just think back to ten years ago. Go on! Clear the cobwebs out of your brain and really dig back in there.
Think about how you communicated with people. People you didn’t even know. Didn’t even know existed!
It blows my mind how much social media has really made connections between people around the world. I love hearing stories of how adoptive siblings found each other through something as simple as Facebook. I also love how I can stay connected to my group of high school and college friends through social media since I don’t live in my home town or near my college friends.
As an author, having these social media tools have really helped me reach out and get to know y’all, my readers. Many of you have become my friends, even though we haven’t met in person.
Last year I was fortunate enough to met about one hundred of my street team members. Social media helped me recognize them right off and hug them! We had been “friends” in my head (because of social media) for so long that I was able to just pick up our conversation by asking about their family members, health issues, reading, and many things friends talk about.
I have to admit I LOVE LOVE LOVE all social media. Recently I have really gotten into Instagram!
My boys have used Instagram for a long time and leave it to me to be late to the party. Most of my readers aren’t on there yet and I post a lot of fun pictures and didn’t want them to miss out, so I attached my Instagram feed my website. It’s so cool. This lets my readers stay in the loop on Instagram without being a member of the social media.
I’m always trying to make it easier for the reader to connect with me.
