The Thing with Being a Writing Entrepreneur…

Now that I’ve decided to make a dead serious go of making a living, I’m having to completely rethink the way in which I’m spending my time.

And the thing is that I’m currently spending more time sorting out my social networking stuff than anything else. And there’s so many things that depend on other things that depend on still other things, that I’m finding it really difficult to decide where to begin on a given day.

So, to help myself, I decided to create a nifty, colorful mind-map to simplify things visually.

This is the result…

How are things going on your end?

  1. I thought I had a lot of social media… I post on Facebook… then Google+, Twitter and Pinterest… that is more than enough for me… I also use Instagram once a week or so but not for my blog… Twitter and Google+ are my favorite. All of it needs me to put a time limit on it or I would be on it non-stop … xox

  2. Yeah I just pick what I think is best. For my young adult/real name fiction I have Facebook, Twitter, Instagram (well I'm revamping this graveyard) and Pinterest. Google + is for my blog. With my adult work I have Twitter, Tumblr and Pinterest. I have never really gone to Youtube because I noticed a lot of successful authors don't have a big presence on that site outside posting some book trailers and maybe a few interviews. Do what is best for you and wishing you all the luck in the world.

  3. I guess if you can recycle the same posts for the most part on those, that is great. Otherwise, yeah, too much going on. Good luck figuring it out and I hope you have some time for actual writing left:)

  4. Haha. Yes, that's MUCH simpler… lol Wow are you industrious, doing Tumblr and YouTube and Wattpad and Pinterest and Instagram (etc). I've purposely been avoiding those. I'm a very visual person, so Pinterest especially would be a total time suck. Fun, but a time suck where no writing would get done. Best of luck!!

I'd love to know what you think, so please leave a comment!
