You know that thing called Facebook? Used to be all the rage with the teens. Seems like they moved on and left us alone! Yippeee!
Everyone complains about Facebook. It's such a time suck. I don't care about what you had for dinner. More baby pictures??
But in reality, Facebook is a great place to connect with your friends and family. And an even better place to stay in the know with your favorite brands. Say, maybe, like ME!
I am so grateful for all of you who have "liked my page". You like me, you really really like me!
What I love about Facebook is that it is a fabulous way for me to connect with you right away. When I'm working on a project. When I've designed something new. When I have something I would like your feedback on. Or when I've had too much candy!
Facebook is usually the first place I go...next to Instagram (do you follow me there?), or my Weekly Gem.... I digress.... But truly, Facebook is my go to.
Here is the problem. Facebook is SO huge, immense, large, big, giant sized...we are missing each other. I know, it makes me sad too!
There is a solution. You didn't think I'd leave you hanging, did you? NEVER!
If you want to stay up to date with me there is something you can do.
Go to my page...just click here. Or in the Facebook search box type in StudioJewel.
Yay, you're there! You don't like me yet? No worries! See that cute little "like" button? Just give it a click!
Then click next to where it says, "Show in News Feed"
If you want to make it even easier to find what's going on, you might want to add me to one of your Interest Lists. See that option?
I LOVE interest lists. It allows me to put my family in a list, friends, shops I want to follow, basically ANY thing. Then you can easily access those lists with a simple click on your side bar. Want to learn more?
Click on "add to interest lists" and a new menu will come up with the lists you already have, and a button with a + sign that says + New List choose that. A window will pop up with my page (since that is the page you are on) along with suggestions as to what type of list to add the StudioJewel page to.
Click on the StudioJewel icon and then "next".
Here is where you can name your list.
"sites I like"
"blogs I enjoy" :)
you get the idea
...then decide if you want your list available for everyone to see "Public", only your "Friends", or "Only Me"! I tend to keep my lists private, but that's just me.
I called this list Studio Jewel - original, I know - but this way I can check on my posts very easily.
You can see all of your interest lists there....easy peasy!
Whew, thanks for sticking with me...and maybe learning a thing or two!
To reward you I would like to give away TWO $50 gift certificates to my shop. How do you enter? Just go to Facebook and update Studio Jewel to be in your newsfeed, or even add me to an interest list.
Come back here and leave a comment telling me what you did - don't forget to leave your email too! I'll leave the giveaway open until Saturday the 9th at midnight (EST).
