- Comments: I'm talking comments on blogs, whether it may be responding to comments on your own site or commenting on posts of fellow bloggers. Knowing that someone out there is reading your stuff and taking the time to share a word or two really can make a world of difference. Though I may be late in responding at times, I do believe it is better late than never. Personally, I always think it is fun to receive comments on older posts. It's good to know that they are floating around in cyberspace with the potential for more love!
- Facebook: I maintain a Facebook page for this site. I feel that there are a number of readers out there that want to talk books, but may not use other social media networks. And, I really enjoy talking books wherever I can get it!
- Twitter: This is by far a great way to connect with a large and varied audience! I have followers that are authors, publishers, book bloggers, book lovers, and so much more, and I follow many of the same. I find connections, small talk, and a commiseration of book love all over the place, from #fridayreads, #indiethursday, and so much more, including Twitter parties for such activities as #ArmchairBEA. There are so many possibilities out there, but I also truly believe that the important piece is the INTERACTION between the people. The purpose is to network and it is a great place to do just that!
There are a number of new trends out there in the world wide web, but due to time constraints, I have chosen not to get involved in them. I choose to participate in only so much, not spreading myself too thin, and still allowing for quality interactions. I will be really curious to find out if anyone has discovered the secret to finding more time in the day (maybe Hermoine's time turner or Well's time machine). Can you imagine what we could do then?!?
