I did a guest review on Dom Giordano’s blog. I would be so grateful if you would pop over there and let me know what you think. For nearly 20 years, Dom Giordano has been one of the country’s most popular and respected talk show hosts. I have been a fan since 9/11.
I hope you will stop over and leave a comment, I am trying to make a good impression:)
The first Wednesday of every month, I join hundreds of other insecure writers for the monthly Insecure Writers Support Group. You are so very welcome to join us…
“It’s time for another group posting of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group! Time to release our fears to the world – or offer encouragement to those who are feeling neurotic. If you’d like to join us, click on the tab above and sign up. We post the first Wednesday of every month. I encourage everyone to visit at least a dozen new blogs and leave a comment. Your words might be the encouragement someone needs. “
When I started my blog three years ago it never once entered my mind that I might actually meet people-you know like in real life-
I merely wanted to share my WIP, give and receive support and to figure out how to create one of those platforms all the marketing types talk about.
Once my books release was imminent and events were being scheduled I thought great, between Facebook, my blog,twitter, LinkedIn, and G+ I should be able to fill those book stores to capacity.
Such a silly woman I am.
Do not get me wrong, I had a lot of events this past year, most were very well attended but they were well attended because of word of mouth, actual mailed invitations and because of the real media. There were a few people that did show from twitter and Facebook and without a doubt, they will be forever friends. Unfortunately, most of those that sent an RSVP via social media did not show.
Why is that? Do people feel too timid or shy? Do they feel pressured to buy a book? Or do they just not give a bother?
So far what I have figured out about social media is- you get what you give-well maybe…
I am committed this year to attend as many author and or other events that I possibly can within reasonable distance.
My blog is suffering from a lack of meaningful comments lately so I am visiting as many blogs as I can possibly read and leaving comments relevant to the post. It is all starting to work-maybe…
I am extremely shy and this is jolting me out of my comfort zone but I know it will be well worth it maybe…after all seven years ago after a year and a half of a long line of boring, sometimes scary first dates I met and married the love of my life-the day after I decided to give up online dating…
So, are you comfortable with just online friends or are you trying to develop relationships?
Have you met someone via social media and become besties?
