If you're like me, you've often wondered about the necessity of social networking, websites, twitter, Facebook, blogging, etc.. Obviously, if you're reading this, you're at the very least, blogging. Do you participate actively through comments or are you a passive follower, the kind that scopes out all of the up-to-date sites and soaks in all the information provided but prefers to remain anonymous? For a long while, I was a passive listener, and many times still am, as I wonder who would want to hear what I have to say.
Anyway, this past weekend, March 15-17, Route 19 writers enjoyed exciting master class sessions with Emma Dryden, http://www.drydenbks.com/ where she briefly discussed social networking. Check out the following link http://writerunboxed.com/2013/03/18/5-industry-trends-requiring-every-writers-attention/for a site she recommended, and after reading, decide for yourself the type of social networker you want to be and if you should get involved.
Also, if you're interested, and haven't yet heard of the following website, check out this link. As long as you're a writer, whether you're an active participant or a passive follower, this site should interest you.
