I know it's all the big deal now to get involved in social media, like it's our responsibility as authors. And I believe it is! But like any job, there are always new elements to add, to keep yourself sharp and viable, and to keep from getting bored with the work.
Master blogging, move on to Twitter. Got Twitter happening, then figure out Pinterest.
For me, the key to keeping things fun on social media is to set goals and challenges, because I'm a goal-oriented person who likes to do hard things. If something gets too easy, it can become dull. But I also like routine, so I too often fall into a rut.
Utilizing guest posters on my blog has really been fun for me and I hope for them and you, too. It has freshened the blogging experience.
Another arena I really enjoy is Twitter. If you haven't done much with Twitter, I suggest you jump in with both feet and go for it! It can be a challenge if you're new to it. It has its own culture and language and methods that seem really different and strange when you first start out. But that's part of what makes Twitter exciting.
What have you found dull on social media lately? What have you found fun and exciting?
