Why this "Go-getter" is Not on Twitter---A CONTEST
"To be or not to be?"
Shakespeare posed this reflective question many moons ago in contemplating some of the complexities of life.
Today, I find myself faced with a question of much less gravity, but important nonetheless.
Recently, a client asked me to sign up for (Twitter/Tweeter?) as a way of providing more exposure for my work.
But, I'm not convinced just yet.
Don't get me wrong, in theory I have nothing against those who tweet.
I think it's sweet.
But I'm concerned that tapping into all these different social media outlets will perhaps make me more "social" but not necessarily more productive as a writer.
Which, in my mind, is what writers should be devoting their online efforts to.
Am I wrong?
"Here's your mission if you should choose to accept it"...
Pen and Prosper presents its 1st Contest
CALLED GET THIS "GO-GETTER" ON TWITTER!
1. In 140 words or less, tell me why I should join the pack in terms of signing up for this popular social media phenomenon. I already have a successful writing career and I'm already on FaceBook. How is Twitter different? Help me fill in the blanks.
2. Post your "entry" in the comments section of this post.
Winners will be judged on originality and compliance with contest rules.
The best two creative ideas will be awarded with either gift certificates, a title, both, books, or gift baskets. It depends upon their choice, my cash flow and product availability.
Deadline? May 12th
So go for it, and have some fun!
