Here is a rundown of where you can “find” or “friend” or “follow” me on Social Media:
My email list (via MailChimp) — a great way to stay informed about all my endeavors! Once every few months, I send out an update with all of my upcoming events, new books & writings, music releases, and so on. 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for as little as $1 per month) you will get behind-the-scenes updates, plus access to some of my in-progress and unpublished writings, and the chance for rewards such as free e-books or signed copies of my books!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 (now “X”) (@juliaserano) — this has historically been the social media platform that I have been most active on and where I post my day-to-day musings. 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).
In the wake of the Musk-induced looming Twitter collapse, I have started posting semi-regularly at these other places (listed in descending order of how frequently I currently use them):
Instagram (@juliaserano) — I will sometimes post photos of my latest publications or events, or odd or interesting things I encounter, but I am not very active there.
TikTok (@softvowelsounds) — I just joined and hope to post videos on a regular basis moving forward. Also, if you’re interested in videos, be sure to check out...
YouTube (@juliaserano) — if you SUBSCRIBE to my YouTube channel, you will get notifications every time I share a new video, including book readings, spoken word performances, music videos, and “explainers” on a variety of topics.
Medium and Substack — this is where I publish my latest online essays. New essays are cross-posted to both sites, so feel free to follow or subscribe to me on either.
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*.
Ye olde blog (via Blogger/Blogspot) — lots of old (but worthwhile!) essays and personal posts. These days, I mostly use it to post updates about my writings, performances, interviews, etc.
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!
ResearchGate and Academia.edu — sites where I post my academic/research papers. Relatedly, I also have a Google Scholar page.
Linktree — provides links to my many websites and social media accounts (much like this webpage, albeit less thorough and wordy).
LinkedIn — I have an account there, although I have discontinued using it. So please do not bother trying to connect with me there.
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...
