Back on Facebook with a new Page and how to Get Buttons
Here is my new Lisaedesign facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/lisaedesign
I hope you will stop by and "Like" me. I tried Facebook about 4 years ago and I didn't care for it (actually that is putting it politely.) However, I have to realize that everyone is not like me. (I know that amazed me too! :-)
Quite awhile back, I received some advice. You have to be EVERYWHERE on-line to get your message out. That doesn't mean that you have to participate heavily with every social media available. I don't think anyone could do that and get anything else done.
The person who gave me this advice suggested picking the one or two things I really love and devote the most time to them. However, be sure to have a presence in all areas. Just because I like or dislike one service doesn't mean everyone feels the same way.
So I have a Twitter account, Flickr account, post in multiple galleries, use Pinterest, participate in scrapbooking message boards, use YouTube, and blog. I haven't tried Instagram yet. Perhaps that is next. Who knows, I might love it.
YouTube and blogging are by far my favorites. It is highly doubtful there will ever be information on any of my other accounts that isn't here on the blog first.
So however you like to enjoy social media, I hope you'll find my posts and videos.
By the way, I love using Pinterest but I realize I haven't been good about posting my own projects there.
You'll find all my social media links on the little green buttons in my sidebar. Aren't they pretty? I can't take credit for them. For ages now, I've wanted to consolidate my various links. I've seen this on many websites but couldn't find a gadget for it on Blogger. I finally did a little searching and found the step by step process here on Sew Many Ways blog. This is a sewing blog! Yes, a fellow crafter gave the best step by step instructions for setting up your blog buttons.
And the pretty green watercolor button images? Those are from Rose at Everylittlepolish, a makeup/style blogger. So thank you ladies for providing the means to get those cute and convenient little buttons on my blog.
Why is it again that those Google and Facebook people make all the money when we bloggers are sharing all the ideas?
Thanks for stopping by! I love papercrafting, learning from the crafting community and sharing my ideas. So again, here's my Facebook link or you can use the little button if you "like" https://www.facebook.com/lisaedesign
