A day late and a dollar short.
It hit me this morning while washing my hair. I was contemplating writing and social media (Facebook, Twitter, blogs, etc.). I wondered how much involvement was too much. Is it even necessary? I thought, what a great topic to blog about. Then the light bulb went off. I totally and completely forgot. Yep, you got it - yesterday was my day to blog. Sorry for dropping the ball.
Obviously, I've figured out that I don't need too much. Right now I juggle twitter, blogging here and attending my writers' group monthly. Sounds paltry comparatively, but it keeps me connected and growing as a writer. Yet, I look at some recent successful writers and wonder if its necessary. For me, in this day and age, I think the answer is yes. But then the question becomes how much is enough.
So, what do you think? Is social media necessary to find success? If so, how involved should a writer become?
