Well folks, last week I promised to be a more regular blogger and here I am and what a week it's been!
If you recall I wrote that I planned to get to grips with my online presence and I have since realised just how little I know. I started off by emailing my good Twitter friend http://www.sljewelleryandaccessories.co.uk/ to ask her what I should do. She, bless her, sent two very detailed emails about increasing this and that and I didn't understand much of it at all so I realised 'Huston - we have a problem'!!! Now I know when I'm defeated and whilst we didn't have slates and chalk when I was at school, we didn't have computers either so I've acquired my skills through work and play (my greatest skill being shopping!!) so time for some more formal learning. This came in the form of an ebook from Pete Mosley called Make Your Creativity Pay which I duly read and which was very good. It explained the whys and wherefores of having a good web presence from a creative perspective.
So far, so good. Another Twitter friend http://www.shellybobbins.blogspot.com/ asked me if I would like to be involved in a feature on her 20,000 visitor celebratory blog and of course I said yes and donated a couple of pieces of jewellery for her to give away as a prize. This kind of took the brakes off!!! As a result my Twitter account was getting a lot of action and it was pointed out to me that I only had a Facebook group and not a page where people could like my work. Oh dear I confess that I got into a bit of a kerfuffle and made things a lot more complicated than they needed to be which resulted in a telephone call from Shelly and her daughter who talked me through putting it all right - they shall be sainted!
Anyway as a result I have a bright shiny spanking new Facebook page where you can 'like' me! http://www.facebook.com/pages/SlickSilver-Jewellery/241037522592328
