I though I would be okay today... Really...
I was managing to handle my current truckload of "social networking" sites,
including;
- Facebook author page
- Facebook book page
- Facebook personal page
- Blogger page
- Twitter feed
- Google Buzz
- GoodReads page
- Shelfari page
- MobileReads forums
- KindleBoards forums
- IndieBookLounge
- maintaining both an author website and book website
- other things that I can't even remember

But then, last night, I joined Google+... Big mistake...
This morning, while trying to put something "relevant" on just half of them,
my head asplode!!!

Thank Godzilla It's Friday!

I know the feeling, so a couple of months ago I scaled back drastically. It helped a lot. Now I just choose a few sites and I like it so much better. What might help is to schedule certain days for certain sites. Just a thought...

That is an exhaustive list and I know that feeling well!

I'm with you on this one. I feel like social networking is a full-time job. And uh...when am I supposed to write? That's what all this is for, isn't it? But I think even with a big publishing company, you still have to network to be successful. It's just what comes with being a writer.

That list, as lengthy as it was, is on top of working a 9-hour day, lengthy commute (I work in DC), and raising two children under the age of 8.
I need to stop talking about it or my head will "asplode" again! (love Strongbad, btw) ;)

Lmao :D Try doing that x6, as I have to. And I wonder why I rarely get any writing done. Oh, and I have to fit work and a life in, too LOL. My main reason for wanting success is so I can hire a PA.
