Being a Self Published author and Facebook


Being a Self Published author and trying to market your work in a saturated industry is hard enough. Add to that trying to use a networking site that was once upon a time designed for networking makes frustrations mount into an ever growing brick wall. Facebook is eating posts that people are subscribing to, and forcing us to purchase views. I’m clearly not understanding how 100 Jedi memes and 50 “share this and you’ll get money” posts are considered more important than networking. Facebook has certainly gone downhill in a special way.

On the other hand, not being one to allow things to defeat me so easily, I’ve found that keeping up with my blog here affords me several benefits.

1. I have to write more and that helps me get better with my work.

2. I get to share a little about who I an with my potential audience solidifying who I really am, why I do what I do, and I get to talk about what upcoming books I have going without worrying who’s seeing it.

If you’re reading my blog, you really want to know about what I’m writing about. And that’s worth more than paying five dollars for more likes, to have them never see what’s on my page anyway.

Thank you for everyone who follows me. I’m not the biggest socializer around but I’m working on it! My goal this year is to be a more active participant on everyone else’s blog.

So let’s get to know one another!
