A while back, I talked about my “social media dilemma.” A lot of you had very insightful things to say, and after thinking them over, as well as reading this post about Facebook pages, I went ahead and took the plunge.
So… click below to Like me?
I’m not gonna lie, setting up a page for myself felt a bit… Odd. Narcissistic, I suppose. But I hope y’all know me well enough to know that this isn’t about ego. Bottom line: I just wanted some separation between Personal Facebook and Writing Facebook.
Now friends and family don’t have to read all about the writing stuff unless they want to. And now my writing friends (and hopefully future fans?) won’t be bombarded with 900 pictures of my dog. Everybody wins!
Of course there will be some overlap between the two audiences, and that’s fine. I will do my best not to double-post. And to that point, both Personal FB and Writing FB are managed by yours truly, so the interactions are completely genuine. My Writing FB will not be just about promotion.
(But don’t worry, both groups will hear about nothing else if/when I get published. :P)
Other things the Writing FB will include:
- blog feed (since it’s mostly writing-related)
- book giveaways (because I’m out of shelf space)
- “Writerly Wednesday”-type things that don’t make it to the blog
- other cool stuff TBD
Anyway, just a heads-up about what I did and why. Hope to see you there!
