They have an app/site for what now?

Seriously, there are so many bloody apps I can’t even wrap my hand around it.  When I think I’ve gotten a hold of something through all my stumbling, here comes along something new.  I mean seriously, I’m not old.  I’m not a teenager either though.  I so need someone to walk me through every media there is out there.  Even the ones that have nothing to do with marketing (although while I’m thinking about it HEY ANYONE WANNA MARKET ME? I can only pay in sarcasm witty banter.  It’d be wonderful on not having to focus on that).

Lets do the lineup and see what i think I may have gotten used to.

WordPress: Blogging, author site…..I’m doing okay, don’t you think?

Facebook…..my bff, and the author page is a nice touch

ImageMyspace: that sucker I gave up a while ago, meander there every now and then.  Went there the other day and its totally changed.  I freaked out when I thought I lost my pictures, but it let me retrieve them only once.  I kind of like Facebook better, especially now.

ImageGoogle +: all I can say is I don’t have one for my author account.  In all honesty why would I?  I went there with my personal page a while back in an attempt to veer from FB and all its changing but the whole flow of it just felt wrong.  Not saying I won’t give it another try, but until I can figure out how to utilize it I see no real purpose.

Twitter: Well we all know how well I am at at that (NOT!) Still don’t know what to say and usually end up feeling like I’m talking to myself or a select few.  Would love to hear what people want me to say that’s even worthwhile.  So I’m still in need for twitter school.

Goodreads: I haven’t been on there a bit.  The message boards are good, finding other books and their reviews are good, but what else could I possibly do?  I’ve run a promotion and, well, no feedback, review, anything. Am I missing something? .

ImagePinterest: OMG I am a pinaholic on a personal level.  I used to be worse.  The geek and humor sections alone have me pinning like crazy.  But that is my personal page.  They say authors have one for just them? Why? What would one do?  I would think you could only go so far.  I try my hardest to keep my personal life and work life separate although they tend to blend at times.

ImageInstagram: First things first.  Pictures?  I’m okay with pictures, but does a person really want to see stupid images of a self-conscious me or my food?  Don’t people take tons of pictures of food?

ImageSkype: sure  Its great to call dad or grandma. lol.

 

ImageYoutube: on a personal level I use it okay, as long as I’m looking up something, but how would I utilize this as an author?  I have nothing to really contribute. I hear people making trailers or something, but for a book?  I’m so missing that point.  It may be a good one, but I’m not a techie and have no clue what to do.

ImageThis brings me to a new one I was introduced to the other day.  Vine.  What in the world?  Its youtube for ADD I think.  Not in a bad way cause my attention veers quite quickly.  But silly stuff in an 8 second format?  What in the world? Please navigate me through this.

I think I have a few things I attempted but have abandoned due to the “no clue” issue and got frustrated.

I am sure I have missed many.  I can guarantee it.  I have omitted entertainment or reading apps because those really have nothing to do with my biz.  If you think something is important that I HAVEN’T mentioned, by all means let me know.  If you can walk me through some of the other stuff, let me know.  If you want to take on the task and market for me….I’ll be your best friend cause I seriously am fumbling in the dark on that one.
