I was reading a few funny blog posts the other day from writers who were getting a little frustrated with social media.
They didn't want to blog or tweet or Skype or sell - they just wanted to write. And while their comments were funny, they were serious.
I could relate. While most of the time, I'm very enthusiastic about blogging and tweeting, sometimes my inspiration just flags. And I'm an extrovert - I can't imagine how difficult it is for an introvert.
So I try not to think of it as a chore. I just think of it as chatting. To me, it's all about meeting people. Maybe new readers. Or other authors. Or even other moms, or friends I've lost touch with over the years.
I've met some great people since I've gone online, and I know if I keep plugging away, I'll likely meet more.
Writing can be a lonely business. It's good to know you have friends out there.
That's what keeps me going. One post, one tweet, one page at a time.
