I've been struggling with this issue for a long time. As a writer living overseas, I spend a lot of time on social media sites and learning about social media tools (although I still feel hopelessly behind the curve!).
But something frequently nags at me in the back of my mind: should I be spending less time on social media and more time on actually writing the stuff I'm purportedly trying to build a platform or network for?? And how do I judge what a good balance is, a productive balance?
Sometimes I wonder if I'm just enabling my inner procrastinator, or, put another way, if social media is really just self-perpetuating, but very little of anything really valualbe comes out of it for all the time we put into it (besides She Writes, of course!)...
Anyone else have any thoughts on this, or even have struggled with it?
Best to all (and thanks to Tamara for starting this list),
