When going online, I hang out first on my email server. Although email isn't traditionally considered social media, I include it because I check the posts and news from the online groups I belong to via email. Another reason to include email as a 'hangout' is emails serve to initiate contact with other more traditional social media sites when the items are shared on them.
Facebook is next up. Scanning the timeline leads to sharing selected items on my author page. With occasionally a share to twitter.
Twitter usually gets the bulk of my hangout time. Reading tweets, re-tweeting, and programming messages for upcoming events, blog posts, and supporting other authors. I have lists set up for those I follow, people who follow me and my favorite groups @MFRW_org and @RomanceUniv.
Goodreads is an occasional hangout. I'm not there every day but check-in regularly. I love my readers and Goodreads is where the contact is more personal than some of the other sites.
To Blog or Not to Blog
The final online hangout is here on my blog where I share news of my writing, notes on writing life, and bits too long for Facebook and Twitter. A really good day is when a review is posted or a reader leaves a note.
Now that I've shared some insights, to find me at the hangout of your choice, click on the icons on the sidebar or the links below. Hope to hang out soon. And be sure to visit the other autors in the challenge.
~till next time, Helen
