  1. If you followed all those lists how would you have any time to write anything?

    • I know – that IS an issue I have as well. It’s a tremulous balance.

      Not to mention, it’s highly important to find where READERS are going (and find hashtags for them)… not just one’s that only other writers would use.

      Still, very helpful to have this info.

  2. Great point Danyal! Writing before all else, but if you need a little break, we’ve found that Twitter is a glorious distraction.
