The Big Reveal

Welcome to the Big Reveal
 

I enjoy reading author interviews, but often times they don’t ask the kinds
of questions I wonder about. So I’ve assembled a group of writers at
all levels, from un-agented to published, and every week I will
have a new question for them.
 

What social media do you use?

 

Ilima Todd
Blog, Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, Pinterest, Tumblr. I’m mostly on my blog and FB, and so far I only use Goodreads to keep track of what I read. Unlike the rest of the world, I don’t enjoy Pinterest and am thinking of bribing my daughter to run my account there, lol. Anyone want to come over and teach me how to use Tumblr? I still don’t get it.

 

Janeal Falor
Twitter, Facebook, Goodreads, and Tumblr, but only a little on the last one. My favorite actually depends on what I’m trying to do. I have a lot of writer friends and blogger friends on twitter. A lot of reader and blogger friends on Goodreads. And a lot of reader friends and real world friends on Facebook. There’s crossover mix on all of them of course. I tend to put my time where either conversations are happening that I want to follow, or wherever the people I’m talking to are.

 

Julie Sondra Decker
I have author accounts on Facebook, Twitter, WordPress (my main site), Blogspot (my main blog), Goodreads, and YouTube. I usually post something to Facebook every day, hop on Twitter a couple times a day, blog most days (but I’m trying to cut down), update the WordPress site when I have news, and plan to start using Goodreads for group discussion more once I get time to do that. I also have author accounts on AbsoluteWrite, Figment, Poets&Writers, the QueryTracker forums, SCBWI, Writers.Net, and YALITCHAT, and I check those at least once a week. However, I have some non-author-related social networking sites too–last time I counted, I had 21 social accounts outside of the writing world, plus a website–but if I listed those we’d be here all day. I think my favorite is blogging. I create a lot of content and love to read others’ blogs to comment too.

If a social media site exists, I probably use it lol! Most of my time is spent on Facebook and Twitter because that’s where most of my friends are.

 

Medeia Sharif
I heavily use Blogger, Twitter, Goodreads, and Instagram. My favorites are Blogger and Twitter.

 

Manda Pepper
I have my site (PepperWords) and another blog for media discussion/review (spooklights). I spend most of my time with them. I have Twitter but am hardly ever there, and my Goodreads, Pinterest, and Facebook are all personal accounts that I don’t use for author stuff. (I think my manager/husband set up an author Goodreads for me but I don’t even know how to log in for it!)

 

Rachel Schieffelbein
I’m on Goodreads and Pinterest, but I don’t use those to be social, I don’t even know how to. I blog, and I’m on Twitter, but I’m not good at Twitter. I use FB the most.

    I’m on Twitter, FB, Instagram, Pinterest, and Goodreads. But I don’t really use Pinterest as social media. I use it more just to look for fun/inspiring pictures.

    And Ilima–when you learn about Tumblr, let me know too. I’m just curious how it all works. ;)

  2. ilima says:

    Oh, yeah. I’m on Instagram too. Suzi, I will let you know if I ever figure it out. :)

  3. Love the new design! Oh, and I tried Tumblr but hated it. I’m starting to hardly ever go on FB any more either because so much of it is useless and dumb.
