The age of Social Media is still relatively new, and can be tricky to navigate. One question we all should be asking ourselves is: What message is my total online persona sending to the world?
You may need to step back and take an objective look at your social media presence as a whole. Look at your Facebook feed, your blog, and your Twitter feed over a couple of weeks. What kind of picture emerges?
If an editor is waiting for you to deliver a book, and they see you Tweeting and Facebooking about pretty much everything BUT writing your book, what will they think? If you are publishing with more than one publisher, but your online activity focuses on only one of them, what will that do to your relationship with the other? If you’re trying to get a job or a publisher, and your online presence consists of rants and negativity, will you appear to be someone with whom people would want to work?
Take a careful look. It’s worth a few moments of evaluation.
