    The internet is seductive and if we new authors and marketers are not careful we will get sucked up, in and burn out like last year’s birthday candles. Now I’m speaking directly about spending time on the internet trying to get your message out there in a marketing sense not in a playing sense.

    Penny’s teleconference last week stressed finding our “niche.” Now I know what that means so her words made me shake my wildly optimistic head up and down, yes, yes. In the beginning I thought the internet was just one big “niche.” Oh, it can be a black whole my friends if you don’t budget your time wisely.

    Heed Penny Sansevieri’s advice: stay within your niche, especially in the beginning. If you have written a mystery what’s the point of blogging on a monarch butterfly site! And good luck to all you writers out there. Stay hopeful, stay positive and remember to make Every Day Matter.
