Making Facebook Work for You
I admit I hadn't figured out Facebook. Until yesterday.
Because I don't display my face there, and I don't use it as a way to keep up with old friends and family, I've been a little stymied. The place is called FACEbook after all, and I hadn't found a way to show my face— at least not a way that intrigued and challenged me. (Don't get me wrong; I love the little chats I have with you, but that's not something I can plan. :)
Then yesterday I started a page for T. S. Poetry Press. And I've been trying to discipline myself all morning, to stick to only three updates. (That seems more than enough for a day.)
Only time will tell if this is a passing fancy, but for now I'm excited by the thought of creating a place (a face?) that shares...
• short-and-sweet daily writing tips
• great info on the business of small-press publishing
• ideas for practicing poetry
• guides to where you can get published
• fun writing projects
• and just some really good stuff to think about in the world of poetry and writing
I told someone the other day that the Internet has become a place of minor fatigue for me. I think it's because there's so much to look at, that's not necessarily connected to a face, a persona. This new Facebook place? It's me, picking the best for you. Maybe that could give us both a little rest, in its way.
How about you? Are you using Facebook to share your most excited face? To be a place of rest for yourself and others?
I'm going to try. And I'll let you know how it goes. Maybe even in a status update... on Facebook :).
