Social Media

Welcome everyone. It's a little cool in the garden. Fill up a plate and poor a beverage and have a seat.

Social Media. What is there to say about it? It's a forum used to keep up with people, celebrities, events, and much to my dismay some people even think it's a political foram and / or a house of worship. That aside, it's still a good place to promote your book, song, or product. But there are so many of them. Every day a new social media pops up.

And there comes my dilemma.

There are only so many hours in the day. I would love to write full time, be able to set aside some promotion time. But with a day job, any time for promotion takes away time I could have used to write. How to know when to use the time for promotion and when to forgo the promotion and just write.

With minimum time, it's important to choose wisely. How do you know? is there a tutorial for social media? Is there a place you can go to find which best for your art? Whether it be art, song, or books.

I'm truly asking, because if there is I don't know how to go about finding out.

Thanks for listening to my rant.

Social media is time suck. I've learned to work with about three that seems to serve my needs and let go of the rest. The trick is to make it serve you, not the other way around.
