Supporting each other on Social Media and Websites - Post your Handles and Links

Postby Eagerink » Thu Nov 05, 2020 7:01 pm

Hello Everyone,

It has come to my attention recently that having a visibly strong online following is a positive sign for publishers and may help one to be published. Since I have virtually no following, I thought I would start a place were we could share our social media handles, websites, amazon pages, goodreads, etc. I think some of you may already be supporting each other in this way, but I wanted a place were our info was more organized and where anybody could add a post.

So I will start off with what I have now. I'm just getting started so don't have much but really, but I will update this when I get more platforms. right now I'm just starting out with facebook. I have one that is a Page where you can follow me for updates (this is where I want to accumulate followers, which is what I want to do). If you would like to friend me also, you can do that through the second link. These are two different actions -- the first is for people to follow what I post, the second is for people to be friends with me in which case I will also be friends with you. So feel free to friend me because that is how I will support you. However, I'm not always going to have time to log in, so if I end up liking your post two weeks after you post it, that is because I'm trying to support you but I don't have time to keep up with it all wotf001 (hopefully, I'm too busy writing.)

The link to my page is https://www.facebook.com/Aster-Glass-107534161051446 and the link to the place where you can friend me is https://www.facebook.com/aster.glass.94/ If you don't like clicking links you can find both of these by searching Aster Glass on FB. The one that says it is a page is the page and the one that doesn't say page is... well, the other one that you can friend me on that's not the 'page'. (But technically I think they're both pages???)

I will add more later. In the meantime, everyone please post away wotf013 I look forward to seeing everyone's posts. As a note though - if it's not clear from your username or signature what your name is, add that to your post so we know who is who wotf008

I'm not super active on Facebook (although I do have a lot of writing friends there now thanks to SSWS 2020), but I do hang out on the margins of Writing Twitter. My username there is @lizticknor .

This is a cool idea. I have this: https://awakennightmare.wixsite.com/yelenacrane/my-blog

I'll be deleting my fb soon, too toxic for me.

Disgruntledpeony, I see that you have a website link in your bio. That's a good idea too.

And totally understand both of you on the FB thing, I try to avoid it as well, but I've heard it's the best place to advertise so that's why I started there. As an added note I keep things very positive
in case anyone was concerned.

Good idea! Feel free to add me. FB’s a mixed personal and professional page for me and the other two are writing/reading focused.

I'm not very active on any social media, but I do have them (and keep them updated with any important news!)

Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Beth-Powe ... 1331259356 (since I use FB as a page rather than a profile, it frequently won't let me do things like comment on other people's posts, follow, or message anyone, so if you try to get in touch with me there and I don't respond, it's probably because of FB and not me!)
Twitter & Instagram: @DrBethPowers
And my website has all the links and a follow button: https://bethpowers.com/
