I wanted to start by thanking Fel and Dawna for hosting a great Indie Block Party.  I had fun sharing a little about myself and my work and meeting other indie writers. 

The best social media tip I can offer anyone who wants to create an online platform is be consistent and watch how the greats do it. 

By greats, I mean:

Alex J. Cavanaugh – Blogfest Master, he makes networking seem effortless.
Marcy Kennedy – Writing instructor and Twitter expert
Kristen Lamb – Social media guru and creator of Wana International
Felicia Wetzig – website therapist
The bloggers of NA Alley
The bloggers of Wise, Ink

These people are super supportive and are doing it right.

Share with me your favorite social media and networking tips.
