Let’s Talk About Your Online Platform – Truth Time

Okay, so all week I’ve been talking about your online author platform and how to make it not suck with some easy steps…. but I am about to burst your bubble.

So, prepare yourself.

Are you prepared? No… I’ll give you a second.

Okay, I’ve said it before and I’m saying it again. Heck every agent, author, editor, etc. out there has said it several times–you just need to listen.

Don’t do it if you don’t like it.

Seriously, writing is already a tough gig, and if you’re spending your WRITING time tweeting about crap you don’t care about or playing facebook games because that’s what you think you should be doing (It’s not… just let those crops rot.) then you are wasting your time.

Only do what you like. If you love blogging- BLOG, but if you hate it– DON’T BLOG. Seriously, that’s the beauty of the internet these days. With such a focus on user based content, people are savvy and they can tell when you don’t love what you’re doing.

Elana Johnson hates twitter. So, she doesn’t really use it. To her I say KUDOS girl… don’t do anything you don’t want to!

So, today in the comments, we’re going to do something a little different. I want you to tell me your LEAST favorite networking site, and why… rant on people!
