I've been strongly encouraged by many of my artists friends to get a facebook page.
These friends are also working artists
They need to sell in order to continue doing what they love.
They have face book pages.
And so do I.
In fact I have three of them.
One I want...so I know a little of what friends and family are doing..
as one of my daughters told me after I'd asked one too many questions about her life...
''if you want to know what I'm doing Mom, go to my FB page.''
The second one is a fan page...
the one I should put art news on as well as pictures of my Spirit Figures..
and I want this one too.
The third?....that was a mistake...
I think I must have created it at 3 or 4 am and just don't remember doing it,
why I would I since I already had two.
I'm thinking of facebook today because I know that I'm going to be strongly encouraged to get my fan page up and running again very soon.
And because I know it is something I really do need to do...
There are three things that seem to stand in my way of actually doing it though
1. I have password issues...
Very often it won't let me in..
There is a julie Micthell in Chico, CA. and facebook insists she is me and won't let me in because my password isn't her password, nor will it let me, find me.
frustrating...we go round and round and I give up.
2. I can't get rid of the third mystery page. There are people there wanting to be friends and I don't want to friend them to a page I'm not going to tend...so they hang there in limbo...ignored...makes me feel guilty.
And there seems to be no way to delete it and it's the one that I get taken to when I search myself trying to find the page I do want.
3. If I should somehow get lucky and break through to the page I like, I can't seem to find my fan page, and by then I'm just to bummed to do anything but read what others have posted.
I bought the book Facebook for Dummies, or maybe it was Facebook for Idiots...doesn't matter...and it seems that I am both an idiot and a dummy when it comes to this stuff.
Apparently the things I need to know are so basic they didn't even bother to mention it in the book. Like how to delete a page.
I can't find the book now...it's somewhere where books I deem useless end up
.....and now I want it....but now FB has changed the layout..
I'm gathering courage to do this...
be a Facebooker.
I have to...I have to overcome this frustration. I've stopped even trying to get in to see what that daughter of mine is really up too and I hate hearing it from people I know, who know both of us.....
I should at least be in the loop
So wish me luck
I'm gathering courage.
