Social Media for Writers

In Off-Topic on May 4, 2013 at 4:38 pm

I’ll be the first to admit: I’ve been a little slow on the uptake with using platforms like Twitter and Facebook to get my writing out there. First, it felt a little presumptuous to create a fan page for myself when I haven’t actually published anything yet; then it just seemed like I could never have enough to say to fill up a Twitter feed or timeline.

I’ve been at this blogging thing for nearly a year now, so it’s about time. Now let’s see if I can get it off the ground!

If you’re really feeling particularly lovey toward me today, why not follow me on twitter, too? @pinionpost
