It's October 1st, and you know what that means? It means it's IWSG time!
The first Wednesday of the month is set aside for insecure writers across the blog-o-sphere to share all of our individual experiences, the gud, the baaaaaad and the plug ugly. You can either click on the link at the picture, or on the IWSG page located at the top of this blog.
Today's post is a mixture of good news and a reality check.
First, the good news. I created a new book blog at Tumblr. Called Books By G.B. Miller, it's basically a referral/linky to my main book blog here on Blogger. The are only two reasons as to why I decided to do this.
First, I wanted to take advantage, however small, of blogging's dark side, and for better or worse, Tumblr is blogging's dark side. Any thing that your twisted little heart desires you can basically find on Tumblr, so I figure since my writings are flavored with sex (twisted to a small degree), why not try to take advantage of all possible mediums.
Secondly, and most importantly, I created a 2nd book blog in order to bail myself out of Facebook jail. Hard to believe, but I'm in the first level of Facebook jail, which is having to supply the CAPTCHA to any book blog link (and only my book blog) that I post to Facebook. The only reason that I can think of as to why I'm being punished, is that I went a tad overboard back in late 2012/early 2013 post links to my new (at the time) debut novel.
Realistically, Facebook is a double edged sword, in that they want you to pimp yourself/your product all over the place, but if you do it too much, you get knocked down a couple of notches. I have friends who have been put into Facebook jail for something as simple as thanking people for accepting a friend request. So my friends, always keep it in the back of your head that Facebook will punish you for perceived transgressions of excessive verbiage.
