Social Media Day

Here we are sharing on social media. There are events all over the country whether it be marketing on social media or learning the industry. I’m sure all of you out there reading this probably thinks: Why is there a day to celebrate social media? You know there is a day for just about anything.  😉

My biggest challenge with social media is sharing bits and pieces of my life. I’ve been trying to share more personal stuff but still have my guard up. Maybe today should be the day I expand my presence on social media. This would include setting up my etsy store for my hand crafts, establishing Facebook, pinterest, Instagram and twitter accounts that connect to this blog. How else can I expand my social media presence?

Here is to everyone out there. Thanks for sharing pieces of your life with me on your blogs and posts on other social media. Have a great day!


New Year Resolution Status


I’m feeling really good about my resolution progress. My resolutions are: learn how to crochet, learn how to weld, set up a Twitter account, and refresh my HTML knowledge so I can improve my blog and possibly set up a webpage

I had some red & green yarn but no crochet needles. I got a 10 piece kit with 7 crochet needles, 2 large hole sewing needles in a case at WalMart. Next I found a video on YouTube for beginners and away I go. I can make a chain and make a couple of rows of single crochet. My tension is not very good yet but I will continue practicing.

We purchased a 90 amp welder at Harbor Freight tools. I got a new welding helmet, gloves and sleeves. Mac welded in the Army so he is helping me. I was able to weld 2 pieces of metal together but it wasn’t very pretty. More practice in my future for sure.

I did set up Twitter and Instagram accounts but haven’t made any tweets or messages yet. Not sure my life is interesting enough that anyone would want to follow me.

I took a college class on how to set up a webpage about 4 years ago. I can’t find the book and since I didn’t make a webpage I have forgotten what HTML codes to use. I also can’t find my HTML book so I searched online and found a sight that tells you what HTML codes to use to create banners, tables, marquees and more. So now I will be trying some different things on this blog and than move on to making a webpage.

How are your resolutions going on day three of 2017?
