  1. Oy, I knew this one was coming! I guess it is time to take the bull by the horns and just do it! I am going to create my Facebook page! I was waiting for a really cool graphic or blog button, but I am not a designer! I can set it up and make changes, right? Crossing my fingers!

  2. I really need to start using my facebook page more to promote my blog. I’ve had it for awhile but never really use it. It just updates when I have a new post up. Time to get some more followers!
    @Greeneyedmomma You can create a button very easily using Picmonkey. There is a tutorial video over at SITSgirls as part of their Pinterest Challenge. http://www.thesitsgirls.com/blog-community-2/how-to-use-pinterest/

  3. i find it really hard to keep up on facebook AND twitter. and once i’ve been off twitter for a while it’s hard to get back into it– like using it for the first time!

    here is another tutorial on how to create a facebook timeline cover photo. http://www.homestoriesatoz.com/2012/01/how-create-facebook-timeline-cover-photo-template.html

    i did mine and it was fun!! http://www.facebook.com/pages/SeriouslyAHomeMaker/372733000298

    excited to hear what jennifer will say about pinterest on friday!

    This is great! I’m learning new things every day. Now, I just need to put them to use. I just created a facebook page. There is a lot still to discover, but the process is so much fun!
    Thanks!

  5. Wow, that was a challenge! Thank you for giving me the drive to get my FB page up. It is a good start, but a work in progress for sure! Thank you so much for the Blog Awesome Challenge! Learning new things every week!

  6. Totally on the fence about creating a FB fan page for my blog (I’m think I’m mostly just self-conscious about it). Thoughts on encouraging people to subscribe to personal profiles on FB?

    Looking forward to your thoughts on Pinterest!

  7. Great post to encourage me to start tweeting!! I keep putting it off…next week is the week to do it!
    Cheers-

  8. I’m more involved on Twitter than FB, but I do have them linked and try to go through FB to post so that it shows up on Twitter.

  9. Off the fence. Going to try to set up a FB page this weekend.

  10. I love Twitter and Facebook. Recently, I’ve been trying to work on improving my overall engagement on FB and balance out my time on both platforms because they both have their own positives.

  11. Twitter & Facebook are equally addicting. My favorite tip here: Resist the urge to over post! One time a day (two max) is fine. (Preferably with a touch of humor.) That’s not set in stone is it? lol

  12. I’ve had a Facebook page for a while now, guess it’s time to buckle down and use it in full force like I was before!
