Is facebook still relevant?

Is Facebook still relevant for your business? For my business is not really. The truth is Facebook was never really relevant for my business. By the time I put my professional presence on the web Facebook was basically over. They ha already stared to limit the post people see in an effort to ENCOURAGE people to pay to boost post.  Barely any of my post were shared or commented on. Now I don’t want to act like I don’t care. I was sooooo  disappointed.

 

My Facebook account

My Facebook account

 

it is possible that my friends and fans just din’t care what I was doing or didn’t care to  share or comment. At the same time I was struggling to get noticed on facebook My Pintrest , Hometalk and Twitter accounts were taking off. So I just focused on those accounts to promote my store and projects. my hometalk account was the star of the bunch. It’s small focused community, enthusiastically clicked and commented on my projects and blog posts. I always and continue to post to facebook but don’t get the interaction and interest I get from the other sites

It’s simply easier on Pintrest, Twitter and Hometalk to find other people who share your interested and connect.

 

So as it gets harder and harder to reach fans and friends on Facebook I shrug. I have a personal Facebook account and one for my business. It’s fun but for me nothing more than that.

What has been your Facebook experience.

Follow me to Hometalk a place for you and me!!!!!!

Hometalk how I love you, let me count the ways. I have been meaning to write this post for a while now and now I have the perfect push. Hometalk is having a contest for Bloggers. I am the accidental bogger. I just intended to have a website and the next thing I knew I had a blog and people were reading it.

So I was just making my little posts and sharing on Facebook and Pintrest. The Printrest peeps were coming over and reading it was awesome. I knew of

Hometalk and I sniffed around it a little I clipped a few posts. For those of you wondering Hometalk is it “is the largest online home & garden knowledge hub” Basically it’s a website full of people just like me who love all things Home and Garden talking about and sharing DIY ideas and everything in between, amateurs and professionals alike. get over there and LOOK! So decided to make my first post to Hometalk about what I was doing. I was having a Shiny Spray paint party. So I posted my first post to Hometalk From Trash to Shiny, I also posted to Facebook and Pintrest as usual. My Blog traffic shot up like a rocket. I had my usually Facebook and Pintrest traffic but my Hometalk traffic was through the roof. It doubled my best day. I was amazed. It was the same time every time I have posted a project and DIY ideas. I found my peeps. I’ve found them yoo hoo! A sweet pocket of Do it Yourselfers like me. I actually posted a poem to Hometalk on  their Facebook page. It went something like this:

Hometalk how I love you let me count the ways
Where people click on and comment on my post like no other.
Its the land of the DIY peeps like you and me.

As you can see I’m not a poet, but I was so darned excited. So follow me to Hometalk. It’s the place for DIYers like you and me!

4 Amazing Furniture Transformations

4 furniture RedosI wanted to share some Furniture Re-dos that I thought were awesome. The thought for this group is seeing an amazing  transformation in something I would think had almost zero potential. Now that’s me thinking it has zero potential, my personal opinion. Now Create Inspire’s table is quite lovely before but I would have walked right by it because I tend to stencil and with the raised detail it might now work for me. But…… after seeing how she refinished it. My mind is totally changed I am now looking for a piece with a lot of detail so I can glaze that sucker up. I hope you find some inspiration like it did.

The Finished Table My Epic First Stencil project. I learned a lot making this piece. If I did again right now it wouldn’t take me as long. I am sure proud of this Beauty. Read more and check it out in my Shop.
teal-table This is little Blue table that blew my mind and showed me the potential of glazing a piece. Can I say I love Blue? Check out the full transformation on Create Inspire’s site.
1-1 I love this piece because it shows the power of paint. To me the piece before is dated and boring. I wouldn’t have looked twice at it, but look how lovely it is with after Carrie’s crisp white paint job. It got me looking for a majorly underwhelming piece to transform. Read more at her site Painted Furniture Ideas.
Round Blue Table And finally the Round Blue table. This table I left at the a garage sale because I had no idea what to do with it. After I went home I saw a similar round table in a nice bright color on Pintrest. I went flying back for that sucker with fingers crossed and it was still here waiting for me. Read more and check it out in my Shop.
