Where I lurk…

I’m spending less time here, at the moment, so I thought I’d share some other places you can find me 😊

Facebook – this is where I talk about my writing, share articles about books and occasionally some book reviews

Twitter – all manner of random stuff comes out of my fingertips here!

Goodreads – I don’t really use this site as a social media platform, but I do review the books I’ve read

Newsletter (link takes you to the sign-up page) – I guess this is the reason why my blog has taken a backseat. My newsletter comes out once a month, I try to talk about things that both readers and writers will be interested in, and there’s always a small giveaway attached to it. Click here to find out why I give away the things I do.

I don’t plan to give up this blog entirely, but at the moment other things are taking precedence. I’ll probably see you over on your blog too x

    1. Hi Alex, yes I follow you on Twitter – it’s so crowded though, I sometimes miss people. I really need to get my head around using lists. Last time I said that, I set them up, but I don’t automatically use them to see tweets. Thanks for subscribing to my newsletter – one day, it might even be interesting 🤞


  1. Hi Annalisa – having just got ‘slightly’ involved with FB … my time is being taken up and it’s so nebulous – well a lot of it! But I’m an eclectic blogger and do spend quite a lot of time ‘researching’ projects … I suspect I’ll keep doing what I’m doing – though may branch out into Twitter … just to get a handle of it. I only comment on FB … time?! But good to know where you are – and I really should look at Goodreads properly – cheers Hilary


  2. There seems to be so many different avenues to connect these days, my blog has taken a back seat this year. Twitter is good for writing community I find, but I don’t do Facebook.


  3. It’s understandable to want to redirect your time and energy to other things, including other forms of social media. I like Twitter best because I only have to come up with a line or two of writing at a time and I can retweet the writing of other people as well; it’s less work than blogging.


    1. Yes, much quicker and more immediate – and random. I don’t feel I have to stick to writing-related subjects… Indeed it’s frowned upon if you do. I often unfollow people who do nothing but talk about their own books!


  4. I’ve been blogging less and I’ve noticed many others doing the same. I miss the old “magic” of blogging. You won’t find much activity from me these days on the internet, but I do lurk the blogs of others now and then.

    Tossing It Out


    1. I remember when I first started blogging there were many online articles about how it was dying. Then there was a resurgence. I think we’re ebbing the other way for a while, but it’ll come into its own again. I met so many lovely online friends through my blog, I’m not going to give it up entirely, I just need to know I’m not tied to it. Thanks for stopping by 🙂


  5. I think you do such a great job on your newsletter! I am always impressed with it.
    I’ve barely been blogging or on social media at all but I am trying to get back to it for the rest of the year. I have never been able to feel comfortable on Twitter – just feels like so much noise to my introverted soul LOL. Blogging is really the only form of social media I’ve ever genuinely enjoyed so I don’t want to give it up entirely.


    1. Aw, thank you! I know what you mean about Twitter – it feels like standing in a really busy room, shouting loudly and hoping someone hears, while simultaneously walking past people and commenting on what they’re shouting about. I’m slowly getting it, but not quite 🙂


    1. Yes, now I’ve stepped back from blogging (and from reading other blogs so much) I’m upping my other social media usage – I’m trying to get to grips more with Twitter, which doesn’t come as naturally to me as Facebook.


Thanks for reading. I'd love to know what you think.
