Are you tired of hearing bloggers complain about the constant changes to Facebook? If I wanted to hear whining all the time I’d work in customer service for an airline.
I’m all for the changes Facebook is making. First off, and I’m talking to you bloggers, no one gives a shit about your reach. LITERALLY NO ONE. Second, I really like my newsfeed with the changes Facebook has been making. Kitten content has increased by 67%!
Know what? I love the crappy little community we’ve built together. I’ve come to think of you as my
relentless stalkers annoying relatives dear friends. And I was sad when a few of you emailed back in December to tell me that you missed most of my Ginger 2017 updates on Facebook. I guess it has something to do with alligator rhythms?
I’m hoping to post more often on this ol’ blog because it won’t ever be affected by changes to algorithms or whatever the hell people keep telling me I should be worried about. Apparently this space is my ‘real estate’ and I should be treating it like the precious flower it is.
That said, I’ve learned that most of you don’t comment and interact in this space — that you prefer Facebook. Like, you come here, read the post and then go back to Facebook to leave a comment. This might be because sometimes my blog acts all weird and I don’t know how to fix it. (Do you think the internet will eventually ask me to leave?) SO! I’ve created a little Facebook group for us! Members only (because it sounds dirty), pants optional. Let’s face it, I’m not overly concerned about reaching a bunch of strangers who don’t even care about the ridiculous things 2.0’s been getting up to this week. So why fret about the reach of a public page?
You can find my Facebook Group – Crème de la Crap – here. There’s a button you can click to join this almost-exclusive club. It says something like Join Group. (Vague, much?) I refuse to add any of you without request – not even my mother – because I loathe being automatically added to groups, don’t you?
I plan to post in the group every day. Unless one of the cats pulls a stunt and we have to go to the vet. You can post there too! So if you’ve been wondering about how it is that I became so goddamned awesome, you can ask away.
My official Facebook page will continue to exist, so don’t fret. I mean, it’s probably good if we continue to interact with regular people, right?
