Exploring the future through the present. One day at a time.
|I will spend more time here.
I keep saying I'll do a lot of things I never end up doing.
Will 2021 be any different? In this case, maybe. With all the upheaval of many social media platforms as well as certain internet hosting sites eliminating content, I can't help but think my own online days are numbered.
Here, though, with it being largely private and consistent with enforcement of its Terms of Service, I'm not concerned.
The only promise I will make here is I won't delve too much into political rants. I save Twitter for that since it's a cesspool of a dumpster fire anyway.
My only other concern about people disappearing from certain social media sites (even if I remain on said sites) is I'm bleeding followers like crazy. Since many agents and publishers look at social media follow numbers for their prospective authors, that I've lost so many decreases my chances of finding either.
The same holds true if I self-publish. How am I to gain readers if I continue to lose followers?
Then again, the Internet isn't the only way to market books. I can always travel to local events where people sell their wares, book expos, signings in libraries and book stores... the only real limit is my imagination.
