It’s becoming versed in the cyber powers that be.
I’m on Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, Goodreads, Shebooks, Reddit, Pinerest and Tumblr. With the exception of re-posting a blog essay on the first two, the rest of the girls are virtually on their own.
The time required to man all these sites is mind-boggling. When does one have time to write when they’re so immersed in social media? Yet I know it can be done…have met masters at it, who man the helm like seasoned sailors.
I had someone ask how many blogs do I read?
Maybe 5 on a regular basis, 2 or 3 more occasionally. I just don’t have time to keep up with my bloggy brethren.
But that’s a poor excuse, I’m told, and not thinking of the advantages.
It would increase my visibility…get more followers and possibly sell more of those eBooks of mine, the latter of course pricking up my ears.
I ask myself, Susannah, are you just lazy? Can’t you attempt to try a little harder?
The mere idea, I won’t lie, exhausts me.
My friend Amy is a cyber wizard having anything scientific soaring through her veins. When she was a kid she built a robot from scratch and taught herself ventriloquism.
When I was a kid I rode a scooter and had an Easy Bake Oven.
It’s no wonder she’s a successful online business woman while I’m cyberly challenged, and still can’t cook.
Where am going with all this?
To the fridge to flip open a beer I bought earlier while I muse on this further.
I will say, self-promotion is an art. It’s right up there with selling anything, in this case it just happens to be you.
Preening for attention is a toughie for me. I know, but you’re a model…aren’t you accustomed to attention by now?
You would think.
I’ve always been the one who skulks in with a bag over her head hoping not to be seen en route to the bar.
I suppose when you think of it, it is the one advantage of a selling yourself online.
No one gets to see you…just the rumor and alleged myth.
Now there’s a possible selling point.
