So, just spent the better part of the morning perusing, posting, and updating my Google+ account, my Twitter account, and my Pinterest account, and I am feeling just that...spent. There's so much social media out there nowadays that I am finding it really difficult to keep up with it all. I'll say to myself, "Oh, don't worry about your Pinterest page, nobody even looks at it." But then I'll get an enticing e-mail saying that someone repinned one of my pins! Ermagurd! Then I feel like I have an obligation to pin more stuff. It's similar with Google+ and Twitter. I pretty much totally forget all about them until they send me some reminder. I have to wonder though just how effective these platforms are for promotion since there are very few people I feel use Pinterest, Google+, and Twitter over Facebook. Am I wasting my time with the others or does every little bit help? Sigh. I guess I won't know unless someone specifically comes up and tells me that it was a Tweet or a pin that got them to go buy one of my books. Comments on this subject would be appreciated. Does anyone else out there spend a significant amount of time on social media platforms other than Facebook? Which do you feel are worthwhile?

My name is Jen Haeger and I have a degree in Veterinary Medicine as well as a Master's in Forensic Science, so I decided to forget all that and write novels. I used to read quite a bit as a youth, but was not introduced to truly spectacular writing until my husband showed me the works of Jim Butcher, Neil Gaiman, Philip Pullman, and others. We are both enormous dorks and enjoy Science Fiction, Fantasy, Board Games, and RPGs, but also try to get out backpacking every once in a while (much easier to do when we lived in New Zealand). Cheers!
