Have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror and though, “You know what? I’m not busy enough. I need more things to juggle and stress me out on a regular basis.”
What’s that? You haven’t? Hmm…maybe I’m the one who’s a bit off here…
Okay, I’m making it sound dreadful, but here’s the basic long and short of it. I once had a Twitter account and an Instagram account, both simply under my full name. I used them moderately enough, and when I really got into YouTube I posted my channel-related stuff on those accounts as well. Eventually, however, my husband Jason and I re-designed and re-branded the channel, which lead to the creation of new Twitter and Instagram accounts to match everything up with the same brand name: Tracey’s Basement. When I talk about keeping up with the social media in my weekly review posts, these are the accounts I’m talking about.
However, after recent discussions with friends about how to better promote myself as an author – and my books, of course – I decided to open back up those accounts and actually use them again.
Because, yeah. I totally need more balls to juggle! I’m not totally off my rocker at all! 😀
The Twitter account, @traceylynntobin, was never really closed, and is actually where my posts have been linking to when I use the “Sharing” option through WordPress, but I haven’t actually logged into it and purposefully tweeted anything for years. I don’t figure it’s worth the time and effort to clean that one out and start from scratch, as it DOES still have hundreds of tweets of my blog posts on it, so I’m just leaving it as it is, with updated profile info, and moving forward from there.
The Instagram account, @traceylynntobinauthor, has been completely cleared out, new profile information added, and even follows changed to better suit the purpose of the account. It will be primarily a Bookstagram style of account, wherein I’ll also share random stuff about my own books and the writing process in general.
To reflect these new/old accounts, I’ve also updated the links on the social buttons to the right of your screen, so click those if you’d like to check everything out. And please do, because I’d love to feel like there’s a point to me putting in this extra effort. ^_~
