Social Media Efforts

Well, there was a time when I was actually trying to do this thing called social media on a regular basis.  It had its fun times, but it also was a lot a of work that seemed to take me away from other work. 

After a looooong hiatus from blogging and tweeting and facebooking -- I'm trying to ease myself back into it.  The goal it to come up with a schedule or plan of action that makes sense. 

One of these things I came up with is a strategy I heard some writers do.  Commit to one page a day.  I read once of this author who says she commits herself to writing at least one page a day.  On some days, that page comes out in less than five minutes and she ends up on a roll and might do ten, twenty pages.  On other days that one page might take 12 plus hours. 

I certainly don't have 12 plus hours to commit to social media each day, but I am committed that my "one page" will be that I will do at least on social media activity each day.  Like that writer, there may be days when I get on a roll and become inspired by an event in my life or an epiphany of brilliance may occur that I feel I have to share with the world.  But I know on most days, it might just be one tweet, one facebook post, one viral video on YouTube....or one blog post.   Can you guess what my "one page" is today?
