Hello there friends. Today, I have a little bit of an announcement to make. I am going to try something new on The Exquisitely Unremarkable Facebook Page.
Yup. As the new season gets underway, not only am I fluffing and (literally) feathering my nest, I am shaking the dust off of my old ways and shaking things up a bit over there.
One of the greatest things about sharing my DIY and crafty how-to's each week is the responses I get from readers.
When I write and share personal stories and my view on certain topics, people open up in the comments and add to the narrative with their own experiences.
I am always touched by the fact that so many are so willing to join the conversation.
As a writer and creator, nothing could be better.
A lot of you do not have a Blogger or Google account and therefore you do not/ cannot comment, even when there are giveaways, which people have told me they love. You can reply directly to my email posts, but I have been told by some that it's not something they feel comfortable doing...and I know that there are times when you would like the input of the community not just this humble author.
As much as I hate the admit it, (because I despise social media and have tried to leave it before) it is much easier to have these kinds of interactions on Facebook.
So, what's a girl to do?
Get a new perspective and...umm...well...this.
This is what I posted there this week.
So what does it mean? Well, roughly that I am going to try to be more present on Facebook and use it as an extension of my site.
Some things won't change on Facebook.
I will still share my posts there and when I see something either extremely thought provoking, gorgeous, helpful or funny, I will share that as I have been doing all along.
But. I am going to try a few new things, too.
I have a neat week long event planned in October. Look out for details!
I am going to host Fan Fridays where I will encourage you to share your newest craft or decorating project. I know that a lot of you don't have blogs, but you are amazingly creative. I am hoping you will inspire us with your own talents.
There will be Decorating Dilemma days, so you can let us know when you are looking for a solution. They will go hand in hand with Crafty Question days if you have process or resource inquiries.
Back in March, my husband to referred to ExquisitelyUnremarkable.com as a KIMmunity, because so many readers shared in the comments, speaking to both me and each other. I want to further encourage that kind of conversation and camaraderie.
That's my goal anyway.
I will also be holding tiny pop up giveaways, offering a little something to brighten your day every now and then.
**CLOSED NOW** For example, I just gave away a $5 Starbucks gift card. (I did say tiny after all!) All you had to do was comment on this Facebook post and you'll be entered. Keep your eyes open for a new one soon!!
It's just my little thank you for hanging out with me.
So...if you like what you heard here today and want to follow the fun, you can find me at Exquisitely Unremarkable/Facebook.
Handing out smiles!
And my way of making social media easier to bear.
*JUST TO CLARIFY: I will still be blogging here exactly the same as always, just adding the new Facebook stuff for the many who enjoy that platform!
