Social??…yes & no

I know, it’s been a long time…you can thank A.PROMPTreply for motivating me to get back to this blog.  She messaged me wondering where I had been.  I’m still a day late, since I promised her I would try to get back here on Saturday, but suffice it to say, I’m extremely busy with little to no time for blogging.

I didn’t really know what to call this post, thus the reason for my title.  I do have some very strong opinions about this Social Media stuff and will just briefly touch on them.  I am now BACK on Facebook…thus the reason for my absence here.  I have been BACK on FB for about 6 months (since Thanksgiving) and I think I mentioned my reason in an earlier blog.  Primarily to promote my quilt & cord cover making business.  In order to set up a business page on FB, you first have to set up a personal page.  It was with reservations that I did so, but so far it has been a good thing.  Nuff said.

I am very much (what many would call me) a “social butterfly”.  I love to socialize and have lots of friends.  I don’t have any problem in large groups of people, have no reservations talking in front of a group of people, and am definately an extrovert!  On the other hand, I don’t really like Social Media.  I believe it is often difficult to know a person’s true personality thru ONLY the written word and one can easily be misunderstood.  Once again – Nuff said!

The FB “business” endeavor has been a profitable and successful one – for that I’m grateful.  It has gotten my name and my creations out to a larger audience. I still sell my creations on eBay and Etsy as well, but have found it pretty hot and cold.

So what have I been up to?  Same as the last time I blogged (which was months ago).  I am still sewing in the eveniing and taking care of grandson(s) during the day.  I only have one grandson now to take care of and only two days a week.  Before I had two grandsons and had them 5 days a week.  That has allowed me more time to sew during the day and work on building my clientele.  Yep, you guessed it…still that adorable grandson, Jackson that I take care of…he’s an absolute JOY!! Our little 15 month old “ginger”…I was gonna post a pic but they have changed things up somehow on here…and I’m finding it virtually impossible to figure out how to post a pic.  Tried several (it case file was too large) and it’s not cooperating.

The bad news is I lost my mom last month.  She would have been 91 tomorrow but on May 4th she left this earth.  The good news is I was able to travel to North Dakota to see her on Apr. 7-10 and she was still lucid and alert.  I hadn’t seen my mom in 5 + years so it was bittersweet. My brother had been keeping me informed thus the reason for my trip.  I opted for a trip to see her while she was still alive rather than a trip for a funeral.  So glad I did.

If you wanna stay in touch…just look Linda Stevens up on FB…that is where I “socially reside” now! LOL

Still debating on whether I will keep my blog here (due to renew in Sept).  I would like to turn it into a “business blog”…but I’m not real sure how to do that either.

For now, just know that those of you who have commented and followed me – many fond thoughts.

    I have been waiting for this post! Am so happy to see you back on here but so sorry about the loss of your mother. I know that has to be very hard, but I’m so glad you had a good visit with her before she left. I bet you are really putting alot of your “grief” into your crafts now…..I think that would be very healing…..well, that and chasing Jackson around! Unfortunately, I don’t do FB or any other media aside from this, so here’s one vote that you just keep on writing on here. Am very happy that your business is going so well too….but mostly just glad to see you back on here where you belong……you may not know all your followers personally by face, but you know good intentions when they come at your and I’m sure you’ll recognize the virtual hug I’m sending you now! 🙂

    I’m sorry to hear about your Mom, but am very glad you got to go see her. I’m not on FB, so if you leave, I’ll be sorry to see you go. That said, new endeavors require some sacrifice! Take care and God bless.

    I tried to find you on FB. Looked through hundreds of Linda Stevens, but couldn’t find you.
