I’ve been using social media to promote myself as an author for quite some time now. I have a Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, Goodreads, and most other profiles that are useful for me as an author. Until I was accepted as a contestant in David Wellington’s Fear Project it was never that much work to maintain the sites and make posts. Now that I’m a contestant, it takes a couple of hours a day to keep up with everything. I’m not complaining, in fact I couldn’t be happier that I’m a contestant and I do enjoy posting about it as a way to alleviate my excitement. But only now am I realizing the amount of work that can go maintaining profiles on so many different sites.
