Also, you know that social media recommendation of posting 5 times a day to each account? So not happening. Instead, I have decided to divide my postings in the following manner:
1. This Blog. My goal is to continue posting weekly Tripped Up Tuesdays blogs. Think of these as a "Mistake of the Week" column--accounts of the "Stupid Stuff I do in the Studio" in hopes that you won't do the same. When ever possible, I will try to post a remedy to that week's mistake. This is the sort of posting where one really does hope to run out of topics, but sadly, I seem always to have fresh new material. Right now I offer links to my other blogs on the sidebar, which I update and change weekly. Soon, however, I hope to organize secondary pages for past Tripped Up Tuesdays posts and for "What I'm Working On" pictures. I also hope to create a secondary page that will provide brief overviews of my Hubpages posts.
2. Hubpages. Longer, magazine-length articles that I hope to post monthly. Although many of these will be related to jewelry and jewelry making, I am also looking forward to discussing more esoteric topics, such as the economics of playdates. This month's blog gave a short personal tour of other businesses with the name, "Naiad" in them.
3. Facebook. Uber-brief comments posted 2-3 times a week. I think of Facebook as a running diary of notable day-to-day experiences; store events (e.g., sweepstakes, flash sales); and fun, interesting news from others. In my opinion, Facebook is the most user-friendly forum for getting feedback and having a conversation with others in the blogosphere, so I hope you will consider liking my page: I'd love to hear from you!
4. Tumblr. Most people seem to use Tumblr as a photo diary, and that's what I do as well. I typically post a picture of "What I'm working on now" once a week along with a few tags. I also repost summaries of content from my other blogs (including this one) as it arises. I find Tumblr the most mysterious of all my accounts.
There you have it: My first baby steps into the blogosphere. I think now I'll go and make a necklace. See you next week!
