I’m as politically minded as anyone. But I don’t tweet my politics. Why? I want to appeal to folks of all political persuasions. I’m not playing to a particular side for my readership. As an unknown author trying to become known by selling my books, I simply can’t afford to shut anyone out of my fan base.
The same goes for political posts on this blog. Those of you who followed me last year during the U.S. elections, know that I supported the current president. But what you may not know, is that my support of any politician is subject to how they perform when in office. If they screw up, I drop them like hotcakes. I can’t promise that I will not blog about politics at all, only that I will not do it very often.
