On Saturday, June 16, I had the pleasure of hearing social media guru, poet, and workshop speaker, Greg Pincus, speak to the Southwest Texas Chapter of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. In a captivating and entertaining style, he removed many of the fears that some of his had about getting involved in social media. His advice was not to feel forced to become active in the various social media realms but to jump in only if you want to do so. If you are interested in testing the waters, take small steps. He assured us that we would love the contacts we would make through our efforts. Sounds like good advice which I plan to follow. For those who want to know more about Greg, please see his blog (www.gottabook.blogspot.com) about children's literature and his web site (www.thehappyaccident.net) about social media.
