Lately I’ve been spending my time filling out the Ramblings of a Misguided Blonde Facebook page, which you can find here. I’m hoping to eventually create a community there that wants to have in depth conversations. Right now, as I’ve just set up the discussion boards, I’m having a conversation with myself! I visualize it as a place for readers to plug their blogs, discuss what books they just finished, and share ideas as to what they’d like to see here. I want to make Ramblings of a Misguided Blonde truly interactive. Currently I have 50 members, myself included. There is always room for one more.
In addition to finally fleshing out the Ramblings of a Misguided Blonde facebook page, I’ve also spent some time developing my Twitter account, @russelllindsey. If you take the time to follow me, I follow you back. Currently Ramblings of a Misguided Blonde, each and every post, is broadcast to 162 Twitter followers.
Twitter and Facebook aside, I’ve also gone through my GoodReads account. You can find me on Goodreads here. While I don’t have the details right now, a conversation or two I had on GoodReads may have a huge impact on the future of Ramblings of a Misguided Blonde. Stay tuned!
Even though it has taken me a lot longer than I would’ve liked, I’m glad I’m finally starting to truly use social media to promote Ramblings of a Misguided Blonde. So, I’m curious – to all those writers out there: What social media sites are you using? How often do you use it? How do you create an audience for your work? I’d love to hear about all of your experiences. Good, Bad, and Ugly.
