Paging Facebook

be social

Attended a fun reception at AdFarm yesterday in their beautiful new St. Louis digs. Only the creative minds of an ad agency could figure out how to make Lucas Park Grille the company kitchen. Divine.

At the party, guru Jay Baer discussed social media with the crowd. I also met the striking Katie Pinke, a fifth generation farm girl who doubles as marketing strategist and blogger extraordinaire. Katie generously offered to help me on an upcoming post I’m writing about farming and food.

“I’ve read your blog,” she said with a smile.

“Oh, really?” I said. “Thank you so much. I haven’t been at this long.”

“Yes,” she said. “I’m a fan on Facebook.”

“Oh,” I said, puzzled for a moment. What was she talking…

“You know?” she said. “On your page.”

Oh, yes. On my page. That’s right, my blog has a page on Facebook.

Thank you for reminding me, Katie. I went home straight away and updated the FB page with all my posts since March 4, 2011, when the page started.

But you already knew that didn’t you, Katie? Seeing as you’re my one and only FB fan. Yikes.

Okay, dear Readers, I  know you’re out there. Here’s your chance to join Katie as a fan on FB. Search on FB and like the page.

I announce new posts to personal friends on FB. So if you’re one of those and you don’t want to receive duplicate announcements from the page, no worries.

Just become a fan, then simply block the posts from the page. Same way you do your Bon Jovi concert updates. (Come on, admit it. You know they’re touring this year.)

If I don’t know you from Adam and you’re reading my blog anyway, first of all, I’m honored.

Second, you too can get FB announcements of new blog posts by becoming a fan of the page. Or you can become a fan to show your support and then block the page posts. See instructions above RE: Bon Jovi.

Thanks for reading, everyone. May this be a comfortable place for you to visit, comment, like, share, and send friends.

Ah, community. That’s what the blogosphere is all about. Right, Katie?

Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken. Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 NLT

Ode to Jon Bon Jovi

O Jon, I will forever love you and your hair.
Looks like we’re both Livin’ on a Prayer.
Though your 80s tresses resemble a parrot,
The memory is sweet and worth the link to share it.

  1. Aimee,
    Liked, Twittered, and shared. Hopefully that will help out some. I had a couple of graveyard facebook pages in my history so I relate. The difference is yours are very nice. People need to get over there and give it the attention it deserves! Sounds like a fun time at your meeting. Hope you and everyone are having a great week and I look forward to your coming posts.


    • Rodney, thanks so much! I have no clue if I need a page on Facebook, but it seemed like a good thing to do. Truth is, I think everyone’s still figuring out social media. It’s like throwing spaghetti up on the wall. You see what sticks!

  2. Oh Yeah! I knew you were a Bon Jovi Fanatic! How can you be of the eighties and not be? Wink!

    • Closet fanatic… Shhh! Don’t tell my husband!
      He really can sing. I especially liked seeing him on an unplugged-type show a few years ago singing Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah. Unexpected and beautiful. Sigh.

  3. Aimee, thanks for this great blog post and yes I am a fan! It is all about community. I absolutely love the community I have built through blogging and can’t wait to connect more with you. But why didn’t we get a picture together? We’ll do that next time. Let’s chat again soon.
    Happy Easter!

  4. Thanks, Katie. The pleasure was all mine. And yes, next time we will get a picture together. I’ve got farming and food on my mind, so I’ll be in touch soon. Happy Easter to you too!

  5. Hi Aimee,
    Great blog! Thanks so much for coming — it was great to finally meet you,
