Are You A Part Of Our Facebook Community?

For those of you who may not be aware, I have a Facebook page for my blog as well. To be honest, between blogging and social media, it can all become a bit much to keep up with, so I try to keep the content at each site fresh so that no one is overwhelmed by a lot of repetitive posts.

At my Facebook page I share a lot of fun seasonal, vintage images, as well as posts that **hopefully** (we're struggling a bit, here), encourage readers to chime in and get to know each other, such as the Autumn Would You Rather image above. I posted this early this morning and queried my readers if they prefer apple picking, or picking a pumpkin from the pumpkin patch?  So far no one has responded, but it is early, so we'll see. It's difficult to know exactly what might prompt a reader's attention, and I've spoken with several others on various blogging groups that I am a part of, and they seem to struggle with their Facebook pages, as well.

All that being said, I'll do the work, but in the end I'm not really all that concerned about algorithms and numbers (though the **experts** would advise otherwise). I share and write for the pure joy of it, and if it catches people's attention and is ever even remotely successful, then so be it. I really much prefer old fashioned blogging when we shared for the pure joy of it.  Once blogging became a "business", it lost its soul.  At least, that's my opinion! But I will say, having a Facebook page does give me an outlet to share other things I love as well, without writing several posts a day here at the blog.

Anyway, if you like what you see here, then I hope you'll consider joining me over at Facebook, and if not, and especially if you don't want to get sucked up into the world of social media, I completely understand!

Your FB group looks like fun, but I've chose to stay off FB. I hope you are able to grow a sweet community there, though.

I COMPLETELY understand! Were it not for friends and family in Texas that communicate with me regularly there, I would ditch it all together. :)
