For the past couple months, I’ve used YouTube in the most simplistic sense. I’ve just been posting videos and referencing/embedding them on my site.
Yes, I’ve been violating the a major rule of social networking! I’ve been using a platform and building a list of followers (700+ in the last month) and have not fully filled out the profile information and set up the YouTube channel correctly by adding a welcome video and fixing the cover image artwork….
So, I need to step it up a bit. Over the next week or so, I’ll remake the clunky welcome video, make some playlists, organize the channel, and fix the cover image. You can check my progress here:
In the meantime – authors 🙂 please take a good look at your own social media sites. Are there ones that need the rest of your information? How does your Goodreads Author page look? Does your Twitter page have a link back to your web site? Does your Facebook page clearly show that you’re an author?
Feel free to post your a link to your author page below. I’ll be happy to take a look!
One other note, Congratulations to Sandy X. for winning the Stephen King book “On Writing.” If you didn’t win (and haven’t read the book), I’d really recommend picking up a copy or checking one out from the library. It’s my favorite book on craft and he has some amazing stories about his writing journey. Sandy, I’ll send you an email this week and can get your copy of the book in the mail!
