Navigating Social Media as a Freelance Writer and Editor

I am excited to update you all that I am making professional strides in my writing career. If you’ve been wondering where I’ve been these last few weeks, I’ve been catching up to the 21st century and navigating the dark waters of social media – quite a feat for this 30-year-old who recently found another grey hair.

I created a few accounts for Paper Crow Blog so that I can start connecting with potential clients and the larger writing community as a whole.

Those of you who know me personally will remember that I am not good with technology. Twitter has been around since 2006 according to Google, and yet I’ve just gotten around to exploring it this week, in 2019. 13 years it has taken for me to understand what a tweet really is (did you know you can’t edit those things?) My God!

But long story short, I did manage to set up a Twitter account, so come follow me and help my boost my sad number of followers (currently at eight).

I have also created a LinkedIn account, Upwork profile, and Facebook page and am on my way to using these platforms to share my writing and hopefully land some writing opportunities. While I don’t use any of them for personal use, they make a lot of sense in terms of connecting with people that need writing and editing services.

I am looking forward to connecting with more people in the writing world. Feel free to connect with me on any of the sites mentioned above, but I will keep updating this blog with my adventures in writing.
