I was kind of surprised that I stumbled upon this new book recommending site while reading someone else’s blog, seeing as how I have been using Amazon a few times a week to update book reviews.
It states it is a “community-powered encyclopedia for book lovers.”
Well; that certainly applies to me. And yet; it reminds me a bit of Goodreads.com. So I have to say that I did not register with this site yet. I may, or may not. I have no shame in saying I have enough electronic sites that I struggle to keep up with as it is, so I certainly do not need to add another one right now. If this is a site that takes over the internet and becomes a platform for authors, I will then be left no choice but to sign myself up.
Right now I am going to continue trying to keep my blog(s) alive and thriving, keep better track of my about.me account, finish my profile for my brandyourself.com account, make sure my Google+ account is current, and while I am at it, I may even learn to use my Twitter account so that it is actually an effective tool for me. I have not been on my Pinterest account in who knows how long; my Instagram account has one picture on it after being live for months, and I am pretty sure I created a Flickr.com account for my photography, but as I have not checked back in since I did create it, I am thinking a month or two ago, I hope I remember my log in name.
So how do you handle the Social Media overload? Do you control it, or does it control you?
I do not handle it well, at all. I find just reading the posts of people I follow can take an hour each day. An hour when I should be writing. As to posting on my own blog, I don’t do it enough. My twitter account is a joke. Facebook ditto. I check in with WordPress and GoodReads because there are voices there I want to here from 🙂
If I believed in New Year’s resolutions I make one to be more socially savvy 🙂
Me as well 🙂 Here’s to good intentions!
