I have a couple of related requests for information and a question. 1. I'd like recommendations for good sites on which to keep a blog that people will actually see. I guess linking it to other social media is the way there. 2. I'd like to hear people's experiences of using Twitter and/or Instagram in conjunction with Facebook, or anything along similar lines, in a bloggish manner. How well that's worked for you, generally. Any tips/advice. I might consider sticking with this for now as the better option. 3. I haven't linked my Facebook page on my profile, as I wasn't entirely sure if that was within the rules. It should be. I think it would be ok, but if anyone knows, I'd appreciate the clarification as it is my 'progress journal' amongst other things, and I don't really have the energy to write more than one. Background thoughts to the above requests: Firstly, it occurs to me that these days blogging and similar are rather important tools for promoting oneself as an author (when that time arrives). I've noticed in particular a lot of indie writers use social media to promote themselves. I'm nowhere near ready to publish. I've set a schedule, taking into account my health, family responsibilities and other factors, which disappointingly means it's likely to be twelve to fifteen months before I'm ready to consider submitting the finished product. I know finished in fifteen months is better than never. So anyway, I've set up a Facebook page to start with, and it's sort of become a self-motivtional tool - similar to progress journals here - and is setting the scene for future promotion. I'm not bothered about lots of fans at this stage, but it's on my mind. Basically, I seem to be using it as a blog. As I have limited health, I don't want to use up too much of my health & energy blogging instead of writing my book. However the Facebook thing seems to be working. I'm debating whether to have a blog which I can link to Facebook, or perhaps something I've seen others do, which is using Twitter and Instagram the same way - linked to Facebook. So I don't have to overstretch myself in a way detrimental to my writing.
