It's official. My new author business cards are on order, without a Gmail, Facebook, or Twitter presence. Updated to include only my (non-Google) email address, author blog, and Mastodon handle. (Since it may be confusing to some, I added descriptors for handle and instance.)

@BickeringwiththeMuse Thanks! It's been a slow transition away from everything Google, Facebook, Twitter, and Amazon. I've got two cons coming up in the next few months, we'll see how the new biz cards play out.
