Building A Web Presence

At a recent conference several Inkers heard that you need to build a large web presence before you get published.  What are your thoughts on this?

Is a blog good?

How about a Facebook page for your blog?

What else can you do to get your name out there?


  1. I think building a web presence is as much about becoming part of a community as it is about blogging or facebook. The platform is blogs, facebook, and twitter, but the presence is about showing up and being in touch with other people, which includes following other blogs and friends as well.
    Not always an easy task in this busy world.

  2. I have to say I have gotten a lot of good information and insight into the writing/publishing world from following folks in the industry on Twitter. To me, any connections or word of mouth you have in such a competitive industry is a plus. Like Donna said, personal connections are best, which is why I enjoy attending conferences.
