Lately, I’ve been receiving a lot of invites from friends on Facebook. I think it’s great, but I’m probably the last author on the planet who is NOT on Facebook. I’ve chosen not to join Facebook for various reason, but the main one is I don’t have time for anymore social networks. I’m on Twitter, Google+, and Goodreads. Goodreads, I do for myself. I needed a place to keep track of the books that I’ve read or am in the process of reading. Prior to Goodreads, I kept sheets of paper with my latest purchases, TBR’s, and completed books. I go in every once in a while and update my list and leave a few reviews. I don’t do bad reviews because frankly I don’t finish books that I do not like. Is that a copout? Possibly, but it’s the truth.
Now getting back to Facebook, I get that it can be a fun place to connect with readers and friends. I really do, but I can barely keep up with my blog. I’ve had authors tell me to sign up and just have my tweets or my blog entries go to my Facebook page. Seems reasonable, but also boring if I’m never dropping by the page. Maybe someday I’ll change my mind, but for now, I’d rather focus on the books that I need to write and leave the socializing to others.
