I can identify with anyone who has trouble with technology. However, some things are easy and fun...even for techno-phobes like me.
I just took a course from a social networking expert recently, and she made the point that I've suspected for a long time. People enjoy the "social" aspect of social media. That means, yes, they do want to see a picture of the cute sandals you just scored for 8 bucks. You should be careful what you put out there though. Say you just got back from vacation, not that you're going away for a week with the whole family. Crooks do look for these things. And never fill out the profiles with actual identifying information...especially if you write sexy stories!
Constant promo is obnoxious. That's another item she pointed out. It actually turns people off. I've never been good about blogging anything but business, so I resurrected a cheeky advice column I had tried a while ago. I enjoyed the heck out of this, and if WE enjoy our social media (blogging, facebook, twitter, etc) so will others.
Check out my tongue-in-cheek advice column if you have a chance and please send your own letters to email@example.com I won't reveal your real identity even if tortured.
I hope I delivered the best advice possible. See what you think?
Now, because I did just have a novella released, I want to make folks aware of that too. Ironically, it's about a 300 year-old immortal who can't keep up with technology and wants to off herself because of it. (Ever felt that way?) LOL http://www.jasminejade.com/p-9862-immortally-yours.aspx
