Although writing is where I would prefer to spend most of my time, in these early days, as I establish a framework for publishing content and managing the submissions of StoriesDadNeverTold contributors, my time has been instead been occupied by other work: Web development, creating the STNT presence on Twitter, FB, and Pinterest, as well as executing and managing social media and email marketing.
At times, this work makes me cringe, as it’s tedious and time consuming, but despite the urge to focus solely on writing (which comes easily to most authors), it’s critical to first set-up your web presence and marketing systems (something that does not).
Otherwise, you risk creating an unmanageable volume of tasks that will take far more time to fix in in the future than if you take time now to create systems for managing them upfront.
(If this is an area where you don’t have any know-how, let friends and colleagues know you need help. You’ll be surprised how generous others can be!)
