Will You Be My Friend?
Some of you will know that I've resisted Facebook for a very long time now. I did join once - years ago after friends suddenly started sending me Facebook requests. At the time, not only couldn't I work out how to use it, but my mind was elsewhere with toddlers running around messing up my house. So I shut it down.
A few months ago, some of my bloggy friends suggested I joined Facebook - they assured me it would be 'good for business' so to speak (promoting my blog). I really thought about it, but then decided I just didn't have the time to maintain something else besides my two blogs, Twitter, emails etc. Oh, and motherhood. Of course. I didn't forget that. Ahem.
Then last week, on a whim, I joined up. I can't tell you for the life of me why I suddenly decided to, but I did. Just like that.
And I'm loving it.
I love that I can connect with so many people instantly, and I can see what's happening in my News thread and I can check out what friends and family have been up to. I can follow other blogs and people can follow mine. Yes - it can be bit of a time-waster if you allow it to. You click on a link - that takes you to another one. You find a friend you haven't seen in 20 years, their profile takes you to more friends...uh-oh - an ex-boyfriend! Click away, click away, click away...
I'm still a learner driver there, and I suspect - just like when I first joined Twitter - there will be some bumps along the way. Any tips you have for me are very welcomed!
I have some more thoughts on Facebook too - it doesn't take me long to form an opinion - but I'll keep that for another post.
In the meantime, why don't you join me there? You can befriend me at http://www.facebook.com/JodieAnsted or like my Fan Page for my blog at http://www.facebook.com/MummyMayhemBlog (there's also a 'like' box in the RHS column of my homepage where you can...like me). Oh, and I joined Networked Blogs too! (What the hell? I'll sign up for practically anything at the moment - I'm on a roll...) You can follow me there too. (At the moment, I'm the only person following me there, which is, ah, a little embarrassing.)
AND - if you have a blog and a Fan Page on Facebook of your own that I haven't 'liked' yet (or just your Facebook page) - please leave me your link so I can go there and sign up! Ta muchly.
Look forward to seeing you around 'friends'. ;)
PS - If you're one of my IRL friends (that's 'in real life', Mum), just to let you know I don't put Hubby or the boys' names on my blog and won't on my Facebook page either. Protecting the innocent and all that. :)
