The site itself remains foreign. I go to my ubiquitous homepage that comes up if I merely blow on it whenever I post, to add the link and a teensy blurb hoping to catch a new reader or two. Has it made a difference? I can’t see much of one since my numbers relatively stay the same. I’m sure, the fact I do this at midnight doesn’t help the cause not being the most propitious time to alert the cyberly inclined.
So far I have 35 LIKES initially making me think, that’s pretty good, until my friend Mary told me she had close t0 2000. Despite my chagrin it made me laugh like hell.
You see, I just want to write. All this self-promoting, preening on the proverbial page is quite time consuming and takes one away from one’s art. Looky here at me just seems like one big bore.
HOWEVER…since any moment I’ll be launching an eBook on Amazon it just seemed like a good idea.
Being the Rainman of cyberspace, I find Facebook along with Twitter, something else I’ve tried, very much like having a second job. Tweeting especially drove me insane. I know people who Tweet every ten minutes…what they’re doing, what they’re eating…what they think about everything from soup to nuts…and that’s exactly what they are…
I will try, however, to improve my skills. My friend Alex, a wizard on the net, continues to mentor me which simply means, doing what I’m told. www.BlaisePhoto.com
I link, blurb and LIKE when I can find the button on someone else’s page when my own allows it. I never knew a page could be so competitive and bossy. Like an obsessive parent, it doesn’t want me to land anywhere but home.
We need a sit-down Page and me. She needs to understand we hail from Connecticut where manners mind their own. If someone LIKES me I need to LIKE in return or at least send a thank-you note if cyberly can manage it.
Alrighty, 32 Tiffany notes coming up.
But wait a minute, when will I find time to write?
See, that’s the problem…LIKES be damned.
Will you excuse me while I pen essay number 742?
That’s what I really hope you’ll LIKE, not something that isn’t even here yet…like Christmas and New Years.
