Just this morning I see a note saying I should sign up for Pinterest. I mean, for heaven's sake, I could spend the whole day just updating my social media accounts. Twitter, Facebook, the MuseitUp Publishing Blog, my own blog, my website and a host of other places I have a presence. Does it never stop? It would seem not.
Not to mention that once I get the hang of posting and tweeting and Lord knows what else, they go and change the dang thing. If something isn't broke please don't 'fix' it. Seems like ever few months one site or another gets a 'new look', whether its a new timeline or a new feature which I can now access but will never use, something is always changing. I suppose maybe it is the way of the world now, a whole generation has been raised with the expectation of instant gratification. No longer do we have to wait for the mail to bring us news of loved ones, email does that. Pictures and images appear instantly on our computer screens, no waiting to have them developed or to arrive via snail mail. Weddings and family gatherings are at our fingertips and with Skype and other similar media we can be there virtually.
Now, I'm not saying there is anything wrong with this, per se, but there is something to be said for learning patience.
To get back to the point, however, I'm just not sure how many more social media sites I can juggle. But I do have to admit, the thought of one of my book covers going viral is very appealing. So, perhaps I will jump on the Pinterest band wagon and try not to fall off and be ground into dust by the ever quickening wheels of social media. See you on FB, twitter, Triberr, etc Don't you think it would be cool if one of my covers went viral??? Oh, be still my beating heart!
