Using Google+ and Pinterest to Broaden Your Reach

Google + button

Google+ is slowly becoming the new ‘hangout’ on the web and it’s probably because it features the hangout feature. This is an wonderful feature where you can follow chats with friends similar to private messaging in FB and chat on Twitter only it’s in very real time. You can also set up group hangouts and talk to several people at once. I love this. Even better, the hangout feature allows you to have video chats, both individual and group.

I’m still getting used to all the things that Google+ does but I believe once it catches on, it’s going to really catch on! In the meantime, it’s also a great place to meet new people, make new friends, Google+ screenshotnetwork, and post your thoughts, share your ideas, talk about you, your blog, your book, or whatever strikes your fancy.

I highly recommend checking out Google+ and start growing your circles of friends and followers.  It’s a wonderful way to broaden your reach.

 

 

Pinterest share buttonNow, about Pinterest – well, I’ll just say this: Pinterest is one of the most addicting sites you can visit. If you haven’t got time to spend at least an hour perusing all of the delights on Pinterest, don’t go until you do.

Pinterest.com is a place where people share their favorite everythings. It’s also a great place to promote yourself, your blog, your favorite things, and your books. Set up a board, pin some of your favorite things there, pin from others’ boards to yours and watch your followers list grow. Set up a board specifically for your books, your favorite reads, your favorite delights, or whatever strikes your fancy. It’s fun, it’s addicting, and it’s also a good place to find new things, meet new people and just have fun.

When I first joined Pinterest soon after it was created, I set up a writing inspiration board. Every so often, I visit it and update my inspiration. After all, a writer’s inspiration can change as quickly as our muse decides it should  -  which is way too often. When I see something that just makes me say ooh, I pin it to a board so I have it for later. I may never use it but it sure is nice to look at.

Check out Pinterest if you haven’t already but I’m giving you fair warning now, be prepared to waste a whole lot of time there. There is just so much to see!

Happy Writing Everyone!
