Well, I know it's 2013, but I've finally joined the Twitter bandwagon! I've always wondered why anyone would want to listen to be blather on about the mundane details of my day, but it's what the cool kids do, and maybe my mundane details are more fun to someone else? Who knows. Either way, I'm there, and you can follow me @1dogwoof.
As of right now, I think I'm almost all caught up on the social media thing. It's amazing how much we have to put ourselves out there, and yet, it really widens our network of support and friendship. You only hope that the people who follow on all the different outlets are supportive and friendly, or at least respectful of your so-called privacy. I was a pretty shy kid and sometimes had a hard time making friends. I didn't like to share. I mean, I share stuff, but it's harder to share about yourself, for fear of judgment or being the laughingstock of school, or apparently from Glee, for fear of being slushied. But here I am, on a blog and sharing, and now sharing on a whole bunch of different platforms. So go ahead, follow and like and join and subscribe and any other fun active verbs that pertain to whatever it is we bloggers do to tell people we want to hear about all the little details!
You can find me on:
Facebook. You might not see any of my posts due to FB's realization that they're giving away free advertising and are locking down the number of people who can actually interact with you. In this world, interaction breeds interaction. Or, put me on a favorites list. Or whatever.
Twitter. Short sentences and razor sharp hashtags. This is a lesson in condensing my thoughts to a sound bite, and #Ineedacrashcourseinhashtaggery.
Pinterest. Of course. So much fun, so many pretty pictures, so much time wasted looking at pretty pictures. I see it as the 'prior art database' of the crafting world. Got an idea? Look for it on Pinterest and see if it's been done before. Follow the etiquette and respect the intellectual property. Grab a glass of wine and scroll and scroll and scroll.
Stumble. Grab a glass of wine and stumble and stumble and stumble. Lots of fun stuff out there, not enough hours in the day.
Instagam. My phone stinks. I use a stinky prepaid phone that has a stinky camera that takes stinky pictures. Still, I appreciate the VERY low monthly costs, and unlimited data, so I can't complain too much. I'll live with the stinky-ness. Doesn't make my son or my dog any less cute.
Google+. Um yeah. Haven't quite figured this one out yet. Maybe it has to do with the fact that I have too many accounts and feel like the performer who's juggling plates on sticks and hoping to keep all of them turning fast to stay put. I'll get right on learning the Google+ thing. Promise.
RSS. You get my feed in your Google reader or whatever reader you use. Get all your feeds in the same place. On some days, it'll be like perusing a big ol crafting newspaper. On others, it'll be like reading a book.
GFC. It's still around? Yes, if you so choose. I've gotten over my obsession with numbers. It's the friends that count. GFC or RSS - same big bloggy newspaper/magazine/encyclopedia. Your choice.
And because no blog post can be without a picture, here's a stinky photo of my beautiful new floors, being stalled this weekend by Yours Truly and Mr. Your Truly. Mostly the Mister. I choose the wood pieces; he wields the power tools. Although, I've been manning the chop saw, so yay!
These are hickory floors for the attic craft room. Hardest wood my money can buy, so hopefully, it won't dent when I drop that bolt of cloth or the 20lb guillotine paper cutter. Of course you'll see it when it's done. You really think I won't be plastering the results all over every social media outlet available to me? Duh.
So, there you have it, 8 different ways to keep in touch. Or you can just email me. I always love emails!
