You might have noticed the two links I've added to the right side of the page.
My friend Doselle suggested I check out MySpace, and I'm glad he did. While I don't intend to use all the bells and whistles there (for example, I doubt I'll do much blogging there, as I'm not inclined to split my focus away from this blog), it's a good way for authors to network and to get to know their readers, and I've been enjoying the conversations there.
Some MySpacers have been skeptical that the profile actually belongs to me, which is totally understandable. Not every MySpace page is set up by the person in question--take this one, for example. And Neil Gaiman apparently had someone on MySpace pretending to be him. But the http://myspace.com/nicksagan profile is in fact me.
I suppose all this falls under the category of "extending my web presence?" I was an only child growing up; I don't mind solitude. It's very easy for me to play the hermit. But really, how much fun can a hermit have?
