Social Media and Writers

Everywhere you look: blogs, random search engine searches, obscure famous people quotes, people tell you that you have to get on the social media bandwagon when it comes to promoting your writing. Now, authors occasionally enjoy picturing themselves as Thoreau. They picture themselves as individualists hiking to the middle of the woods and penning their bestsellers from safe isolation. Now, I’m not crazily social, but every author has to eventually realize that social media is a very useful tool. It’s not mandatory. There’s no author handbook telling you what to do. But social media is a very good way to connect with your readers, to see how they spend their lives each day. 
But that’s just my viewpoint. Here’s another great thing about being an author, the decision ultimately rests in you. 🙂
