Quick post with some thoughts about social media.
1, thank you again to anyone reading this who is following this blog. I tip my hat to you.
2, You may have noticed that I do not allow comments on my blog.
2a, this does not mean that I am an anti-social blogger.
2b, this does mean that I am a blogger who is aware of their responsibilities. I am responsible for every word put on this site. I don’t allow comments on this site because although my audience is small, it’s diverse enough for me to find it difficult to draw consistent lines about what would be acceptable for commenting without offending people. This is particularly so because I wrote a book which has some sexual content.
3, I am genuinely interested in building friendships with people who are interested in what I am doing. So social media is very important.
4, At the moment, if I had to rank my favourite social media, I would go 1) Goodreads 2) Facebook 3) Twitter. If you want updates on this site my facebook and twitter feeds get immediate links to all new posts. However, Goodreads with its message boards and messaging is perhaps a better arena for getting to talk about things in more depth. And depth is good.
5, If you’d like to be in touch with me through social media, the buttons on the top menu will help. I’d love to hear more from you.
