Here’s a confession for you. I am a grade A technological ignoramus. For all of the six years that I’ve been blogging I’ve avoided widgets like the plague and nodded along to talk of RSS when I have no clue what they’re talking about. I pretty much did a lap of honour around my house when I first figured out tag clouds.
A few days ago I decided I needed to get my techie on.
It was a means to an end really because friends and family were reading my blog, liking it but telling me they didn’t really want a wordpress account, so couldn’t click on the ‘like’ button. I looked for a loophole – there doesn’t seem to be one. But one way around it is to optimize social media for readers. And so, after a glass or two of sangria, I was talked into creating a Facebook page for the blog. I’m still cringing. It’s feels pretentious. But I’ll see how it goes.
Now already I’ve stumbled in my techie ways. There should be a shiny link on the side of my blog to connect to the Learning to be mrs C facebook page. WP Admin says it’s there, so it is there people, apparently. You just can’t see it. Bear with me, I’ll make sure it’s visible and clickable (officially a techie word) soon.
So… At the risk of looking incredibly inept and well, plain silly, I’m going to stick to good old links for now.
If you’d like to have a look at the blog’s face book page (I hope you do – I spent bloomin’ ages choosing a profile picture for it) please click HERE
Liking the page will mean you’ll be kept up to speed with what’s happening over here, if i’m not blogging then why I’m not, some extra photos and links to things that made me laugh and cross my legs before my weakened bladder let me down. It also will mean I don’t feel like a right pratt with no likes. See it as your good deed for the day.
Right, I’m off to blow up birthday balloons, wrap presents and drink Cava.
