Pausing to Explore Social Networking

Paws at the Keyboard























Today I'm taking a pause from beads.
All week I have  been thinking about the vast wilderness of social networking .
Soooo many opportunities ...Sooo little time!
 I believe all the available venues give us a valuable chance to interact with like minded people.
We can have some serious discussions and a few laughs too!
We can learn about anything and everything ,shop til we drop and advertise our own creations.
But, how to use these opportunities ???

Trying to figure them all out gives me a  Headache!
My co -workers are huge fans of Facebook.
Every fact and photo of their lives seems to get posted there.
We even have a page for our hospital !
 http://www.facebook.com/pages/Jarrettsville-Vet-Center/189810707709994
 I know many people swear by Facebook  as an adverting tool .
 I set up a business page a long time ago .But, I just don't seem to be able to figure out how to use it to advantage. I would very ,very be happy for suggestions!

I also have explored Twitter.  But, I don't think I have time or inclination to tweet regularly.
Recently I discovered Pinterest .
ETSY makes it beyond easy to use. I have to admit ,I find it addicting!
I am always finding great new things on ETSY .
 Now I can share them by "pinning'.
I am also finding that other peoples"pins" are a great source of inspiration.
Plus ,I've found some items that I really,really  need ...LOL!!!
I am still trying to learn about Pinterest.
Yikes !!! they made some changes today !!!
If you use it ,let me know so I can look you up.

 ETSY forums and  the world of blogs are great for  networking too .
I do visit the forums .But, rarely ..OK..never comment.
Sometimes the discussions get a little heated!
I  am a  confessed blog addict .I'll admit, I am remiss at commenting there as well .
 But, I do read my favorites regularly .I am sad when good ones disappear( I miss you ChiliCats and  Lanyardlady).
I am inspired and educated by all the  beautiful bloggy  beadiness  out there!
I here by promise to try to make more comments ,so that  people will know I'm  interested in what they have to say. Because I truly am !

The thing I need most of is time ...
time for blogs,time for beads, time to stop and smell the roses.....
This week I am revisiting  /rethinking the world of  social networking .
I am trying to discover which forums give me best personal value for time spent there.
For now Pinterest seems to be the best bargain for me.
This week
enjoy your favorite computer connections
and
Bead Happy!

  3. Yes, not enough time to do all I want to do. I am also addicted to Pinterest, so many interesting things out there. Alos, not enough time to hit all the blogs I want to because of working full time, making the pendants, making jewelry, photographing and posting on Etsy. But it sure is fun :)
