Most of the people I interact with through my blog or on Twitter are writers at various stages of their career. What I have not been able to get over is how incredibly generous they are with their time, knowledge and experience.
I have never reblogged anything but this post inspires me to keep going. I don’t have a large amount of followers but every time someone comments, my heart skips a little. And there are a few friends out there that are writing or thinking of writing… I write the blog for them as well as for me.
I know I will love reading my posts years from now.
I hope you enjoy this post by Eclectic Ellen.
Why do authors need to use social media?
It turns out that some agents will Google a new writer when they receive a query to see what the author’s social media presence is. This is because agents just don’t have the time to teach new authors how to use Twitter or set up a blog. Some agents have indicated that they will not even consider representing a new author who does not have a social media presence.
