Here is a rundown of where you can “find” or “friend” or “follow” me on Social Media:
My email list (via MailChimp) - this is a great way to stay informed about all my endeavors. About once every two months, I send out a message listing all of my upcoming events, new books & writings, music releases, and so on. So click the link to sign up for my email updates! If you are primarily interested in my music, I have a separate *soft vowel sounds*/Bitesize email list for that.
Patreon - I am a creator there, which means that if you choose to support me (with monthly pledges for as little as $1 per month) you will get behind-the-scenes updates, plus access to some of my in-progress and unpublished writings, and the chance for rewards such as free e-books or signed copies of my books!
Twitter (@juliaserano) - this is the social media platform that I use the most. So if you want to be privy to my day-to-day musings, this is where I typically post them. I have two additional Twitter accounts that I use less frequently: one for Kat Cataclysm (my fictional character) and one for *soft vowel sounds* (my current music project).
Facebook - the link will bring you to my Facebook writer page (which you should *like*!). I also have a personal account where I generally accept all friend requests. But let it be known: I typically only use Facebook to get the word out about my writings/events/etc., and am not real active there otherwise. Also, if you need to contact me, please use email (below) rather than Facebook.
Instagram - I will sometimes post photos, mostly of my birds and odd things I encounter, but I am not especially active there.
Mastodon - I just recently joined, but haven’t posted much yet.
YouTube - right now, my YouTube channel is currently arranged into 3 playlists: my trans-themed spoken word, Kat Cataclysm (new fiction!), and *soft vowel sounds* (new music/videos!). If you enjoy what you see there, be sure to give it a “thumbs up” and SUBSCRIBE to the channel!
Bandcamp and Soundcloud - these are sites where you can listen to and/or buy my music (with Bandcamp being the far more comprehensive of the two). Those links will bring you to the corresponding pages for my now defunct noise-pop/indie-rock band Bitesize. I also have Bandcamp and Soundcloud pages for my current solo music project *soft vowel sounds*.
Medium - these days, if I have an article or essay that I want to get out into the world as quickly as possible, this is where I publish it. Follow me there!
My blog (via Blogspot) - a mix of essays, updates about my writings/performances, and personal thoughts about current topics.
Goodreads and Amazon - my author pages for these book-related sites. If you appreciate any of my books, PLEASE GIVE THEM GOOD REVIEWS THERE - it really helps with internet searches & recommendations!
Academia.edu - many of my academic/research papers are available for download on this site, all you have to do is sign up (and it’s free!). I am also on the similar site ResearchGate, although it seems like you need to prove you are a researcher in order to join...
LinkedIn - I do have a LinkedIn account, but I don't really use it. I only accept connections from people that I have worked with and/or know personally, or people whose bylines make clear that they are active in the fields of writing/publishing, music/performance, activism, and/or biology.
Google+ - I want nothing to do with Google+ . . .
Email - if you want to contact me (e.g., about booking me for a talk/performance), this is the best way.
So that is it. If your favorite social media platform is not listed above, then I am probably not on it. Sorry. . .
