Today I am sharing a little wall in my country kitchen with you.
I changed it out for the holidays and then basically put it back the way it was last fall.
Soon I will share the rest of the kitchen... including my new burlap curtains once I get them lengthened a bit. They are about 6 inches too short for my taste. Soon!
If you are not a blogger.... please enjoy the rest of the pictures and continue on.
Okay, I will tell you before we get too far, I am not a social media person.
I do not twitter... except for my automatic posts from the blog.
I do not Instagram... Hometalk... Ect.... I have accounts but they are idle.
But I have been a FB junkie for YEARS.
I loved Facebook... I met so many bloggers, gardeners, antique lovers....
Crafty... talented... wonderful new, inspiring peers to follow and learn from.
I soon started my FB page for the blog... and it grew... and grew...
And I worked it... I knew my numbers on Twitter were null... but FB was my go to.
It was normal for my to have 200 plus new followers per week.
It was fun, a happy accomplishment... I enjoyed every minute.
New likes went from several hundred to 20-30 per week.
New posts and photos were only seen by 300 of my more than 17,000 followers.
Back to facebook, I have told my readers to do the "Get Notification" trick.. but for me being a group and page owner... I cannot have a thousand notifications a day every time I open FB.
So here is what I dream of.... let me know if you want to join this little movement with me.
No we are not protesting... or deleting any pages.... it is better.
Lets all go to blogs and leave comments.
Lets join parties and share our posts.
Lets welcome new bloggers and invite them to visit our sites.
Lets leave nice notes to our long time followers saying thanks.
Lets encourage each other to keep going.
Because it was not like this when I started six years ago.
The web was a friendly, happy group that was thrilled to find others with common interests.
I still am that way, I would like to think I will always be too.
How about you?
Spend your time where it counts....
And right now there are better places to hang out than FB.
Here for example!
Thanks for visiting and letting my say my spill...
