Okay, I need help. I have a fan page set up on Facebook to build an audience for the paranormal stories I write. One of my ‘fans’ sent me a direct message regarding my blog site. She said under the About section I needed to put more personal information about myself. I’ve gotten the same feedback from a couple of other regular readers, and even my friend, Ren.
The problem is I don’t have the faintest idea what to write about myself. In this particular area, I feel socially inept. Yeah, I ‘tweet’ and I read and comment on other people’s Facebook sites. But when it comes to sharing stuff about me on social networking sites or on my blog, I don’t know what say. I don’t live a particularly exciting life. Do people really care what I’m reading? Do they care what I think about LeBron James or Lindsey Lohan? Will they truly be interested in hearing what a great time I had at my grandson’s first birthday? Or that I watched “Ninth Gate” last night?
When it comes to writing a short story or a novel, I know what interests me, so I write it and put it out there for others to read. But when it comes to sharing about my personal life, I just don’t know what people will care about.
So, if you ‘tweet’ on Twitter or comment on Facebook, tell me what kinds of things you write. And if you’re an avid follower or friend on Facebook, what do you read? What do you like to know about other people, especially your favorite authors?
Help me out. Toss me a bone. Give me clue!
