In an attempt to keep marketing myself, from a nobody, into someone that people might be intrested in, I've been reading on KindleBoard about where I might start - and so I joined Goodreads, and Facebook, and even got a twitter account. I just wondering how much you might spend on this stuff a day? (Right now it looks like it will take me about an hour) No one knows about me or my work yet, so I am just a nobody.
I'm active on Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, Wattpad, Shelfari, and Pinterest. I check in at different times throughout the day, whenever I'm taking a break on the book or if I get up to get something to eat, but it comes out to a total of about an hour and a half to two hours. The more you do it the faster you'll get, but as more people engage with you it takes up more time. i spend a lot more time on facebook than I used to, but it's worth it because I get to interact with my fans.
Authors tend to use Kindleboards as a place to go when they're taking breaks from writing (at least the Writer's Cafe), or when they need to ask specific questions. The other parts of KB are more geared towards traditional social media.
Thanks heaps for info. Yeah, I've been using it for about an hour right now - but now I have my twitter linked with my blog, I don't have to post on both. The main problem for me is finding something intresting to post.
