Social Media

Social Media....where to begin?

So, I was one of those people (the minority) that had not joined Facebook...that was until a couple of weeks ago. I was not on Twitter, hadn't skyped and really didn't feel the need to jump in.

But times are ch-ch-ch-changin.... and it was time. In a week I went from only having a blog to being on Facebook, Twitter and Skype. My hubby could hardly believe it when I told him, lol. Whew...I have been trying to catch up ever since!

You may be wondering why I have held out so long, especially on Facebook. First off, I didn't have the time do it for a long time and well, to be honest, I really prefer talking on the phone and writing "real" letters but I was not able to keep up with as many people as I would like to that way. (or most people weren't willing to keep in touch with me the old fashioned way).
I also must admit that I just really do prefer to be private about a lot of things. BUT I realize that I still can be private about the things I want to be private about and share the things I want to share :) I do like encouraging people and making them smile and I hope that I can do that through my Facebook and Twitter accounts.

It has been fun though getting back in touch with people that really are my friends that I haven't talked to in a while. Moving around as much as I have since high school has been amazing. It has allowed me to see so many different parts of the country and to make friends all along the way. Now it's so much easier to keep up with them all!!

Also, I have been able to network for my business: J Pate Designs . I still have a long ways to go to get my business page in shape, but little by little I am sprucing things up.In the near future I will be hosting my very GIVE AWAY! FREE STUFF!! (it's very easy to enter and have a chance to win so stay tuned!!)

I still do not jump on there ALL the time and I have figured out how to link my twitter to my facebook. So whatever I post on twitter automatically updates my status in Facebook. This is very helpful! I am also going to be more committed to updating my blog regularly so be sure to check back soon (and often!).

For those of you left that are still not on Facebook, that's alright. I'd love to have a phone call from you any day! (or an email!)

So, if you are on Facebook or Twitter, "Like" me or "Follow" me if you want :)
My twitter name is @JPateDesigns and my business Facebook page is J Pate Designs.
