How Much Social Networking is Too Much?

Social Media Marketing is obviously a common way for bloggers to generate some exposure for their own work. But at the same time, if the time that you spend using social media is not limited, it's possible to spend all of your time doing things that will not directly bring results to your blog. Before I get into this post, it should be noted that I'm approaching this subject from the perspective of a blogger who is primarily using social media as a means to generate traffic and make connections with other bloggers.
