I Haven't Got Time To Tweet - Should I?

Manifest Destiny Mixed Media by Drew Shade
Have you seen the Creative Mixed Media Blog? It’s good and full of delicious information. Rice Freeman-Zachery has a great article about having a presence on the Internet. You have got to admit the fact that it’s really hard to know what sites might be an important factor to your voice, vision, and your business. Rice has made this a little easier to navigate with her article.

This is a quote from the article titled - Blog? Website? Facebook? Flickr?  "If you’re pressed for time and can’t manage a presence on every single site, where should you focus your energy? Rice asked several top mixed media editors what they’d recommend – where do you go when you are looking for new talent?"

It’s a very informative and eye opening article. You can click on "Creative Mixed Media Blog" in the first paragraph to access the article.  In fact it’s pretty great for all of us who are short on creative time and looking to focus our voice and marketing time to media that is the most useful.

Thanks for sharing the link to this helpful article. I abhor attending, updating, and reading a bunch of social media sites and I think it can be a huge time waster. On the other hand I know how important they are to people selling their wares, so I was glad to know others feel the same. I do have a blog, FB, and flikr site, and often all I remember, or have time for, is my blog. Hubby updates my website, which I'm thankful for. I don't have the desire to tweet, and I never think about FB as a good way to get my jewlery out there--something I need to do better at.

Thanks again, and have a great weekend!

Not sure if tweeting has helped me much. Mostly I just upload new work to it just to put it out there. I don't "talk" on there any more. It felt like a huge waste of time. FB and my blog as well as flickr are where I concentrate my time. I have made many sales from my Etsy shop by using those external sites.

I agree with you guys. I never did Tweet - I thought it a time waster and who wants to know what I'm doing every second of the day. I think Facebook and blogging are an excellent way to attract attention and new friends. It made me feel better about my efforts too!
