Do you know how to “read” a blog?
What ARE those icons to the right?
I will explain…
these are the different ways you and I can connect, via social media.
#1 is Twitter (we’re going left to right!)
If you click on this you can see my Twitter page. But you won’t be able to do much more unless you have a Twitter account, or establish one. However, you CAN see what I post on Twitter: scroll down, look over on that right hand sidebar , and stop at …ON TWITTER. There you will see my posts to Twitter.
#2 is Facebook
Again, you won’t see much unless you are my “friend” on FB. But please, feel free to friend me! That way you can see where I am on FB. Note: this is my personal page, not a business page. I debated…I had a business page set up…and then decided it just wasn’t worth it and I really don’t have the time to maintain one more page!
So, what in the world IS Pinterest? “Pinterest Is A Virtual Pinboard”:
“Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web….You can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests.”
Pinterest is FABULOUS! I am totally addicted. I can pin my favorite finds; I can find new things from other people’s boards; I find new blogs to follow; other people discover me; I can “get lost” for hours. If you want an invite, let me know, and I will be more than happy to do that.
Here’s the main link to Pinterest.
#4 RSS Feed
This is a way to follow my blog, through a reader. Don’t worry! If you’re not familiar with this, then, once you have clicked through to this page, just click on “Get An Eye For Detail delivered by email”.
#5 The Envelope
This will take you to a page where you can email me directly.
So far, so good?
Let’s keep going, down that right-hand column. Next comes the box where you can subscribe to this blog by email. Simple.
Then, our “Friends and Sponsors”. This will be growing in the very near future!
Now, we come to those gray and yellow boxes, each one with a different label. These are NOT finished yet…but you will eventually be able to link through each one. The top one, LW Associates, will be a link to my licensing and design business. Next, we have “Interiors”, “Travel”, and “Shopping”. Each of these will take you to a new page with relevant pictures and stories.
Scroll on down to “Popular Posts”. I’ve wanted to add this to the sidebar for quite some time. There are posts that just DO seem to draw a lot of attention! The lace curtain posts are my most googled , hands down! It seems there are A LOT of people looking for lace curtains… I will be adding, and subtracting, these stories from time to time.
And finally….. I will be adding some new “columns” to the blog!
“Fabulous Finds” will appear weekly.
“Inspiring Women” will be be a monthly feature.
“As Seen on Etsy” will be a weekly feature.
And, of course, one of my favorites: “Friday Flowers“
So there you have it. Naturally, these things all take time…so don’t hold your breath. But I’m working HARD to get it going and up. But I also have my business, LW Associates, and yes, am starting another business! I will reveal this one to you in the next few months as my partner, Delana of DuJour, and I get our act together.
It’s almost Friday and my work has just begun…Best wishes for a wonderful weekend everyone!
