Hello everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful week. I have a question for fellow bloggers today and hope to get some feedback from you on the importance of social media and your blogs.
I’m not a social media user. I use Goodreads for book reviewing, but I’m not on Facebook, Twitter, or any other site. Honestly, I’ve been against it because I don’t see how I can keep up with more than Goodreads and WordPress at this point with all of my life responsibilities and everything else. I worry that it would cut into reading time, time with my family, or just free time in general to do some other activities that I like to do.
I see the use of social media frequently and notice that Facebook and Twitter are often connected to giveaways. I noticed that fan pages on Facebook are quite common for blogs. I’ve also noticed the option to follow many authors on Facebook and Twitter.
Here are my questions…
- I’d like to know how important you think social media is for your blog and whether or not you think it’s absolutely necessary. Is it possible to have a successful blog without social media?
- How exactly do you use social media with your blog?
- Do you think it takes too much time and just leads to added stress?
Thank you all for your time!
