3 Responses to Putting the “Fun” into Functional Social Media for Authors, by Lori Ann Palma

  1. Love so much about this post, Lori Ann!. I talk to a lot of people about this, and we all seem to have the same problem: What the heck do I talk about as an unpublished author, because who cares about pics of meatloaf I made for dinner last night and the fact that it gave me indigestion?! I love the idea of engaging in discussions on books, using your posts to promote other people’s work, and just have fun beyond the all-consuming (and wonderful!) world of writing. I think that engaging with others who are reading stuff similar to what you’re reading (and writing) is a great path, since you’ll a) have something to talk/agree/argue about and b) probably find prospective readers when the time comes, but through a genuine relationship and shared interest. I write to connect with others, and it is that human aspect of writing that can feel like it gets lost in the effort to create a “platform.” Thank you for these great and thoughtful suggestions 🙂
