Aw..oh...a serious spark time interference factor!

Monday, May 06, 2013

emoticon Call me fickle...but I always love to be on the cutting edge. Sometimes it just takes me a while to find out which edge to cut! emoticon

I seriously love my Sparkpeople...I mean seriously! Usually every free moment I can squeeze out of my day is right here in Sparkdom.

BUT....since we had a lovely article written about our little consignment gallery (see yesterday's blog) I've gotten all kinds of e-mails and telephone messages saying "WHY aren't you on Pinterest?"

The hubs did set up a skeleton account a while back waiting for me to tweak it (which of course I never got around to) and he kept telling me that it was RIGHT up my alley because it is so visual. He knows his artist wifey life is color, and texture, and beautiful visual delights.

But still....I have my Sparkies to think about and I love you all so much I just didn't think I really wanted to take the plunge to have something else pulling at my sleeve for attention. emoticon

I don't even do Facebook...much to most people's shock. Maybe it's because I know all the people on it so well that I don't really have much more to interface with them on via the cosmos. Or maybe I don't really want to..that's probably it. emoticon

All of our beautiful Josh's friends are on there and the hubs loves to keep track of them and always tells me when they need some Bobbi time which I'm delighted to offer.

BUT...then I'm thinking about Pinterest and my potential for more exposure for the gallery and so I bopped over there on Sunday...and well...

LOVE! emoticon emoticon The heavens parted and the sun came out to shine full force! emoticon

There's NOTHING hard about it...and golly gosh I KNOW we all spend WAYYY too much time hunkered down in front of our computer screens..but seriously this tells me why this is the biggest growing website in recent history.

LOVE! Can't help it! emoticon emoticon It's just so DESIGNED for ME!

Check me out if you like and honestly don't be mad at me for pulling you into this delightful addiction. I'm just going to have to set my handy dandy timer...and it AIN'T cuz I'm cooking!

Happy pinning my lovies~ emoticon

    Loved your page. I have stayed away from Pintrest because it is so addictive!

    Maybe I'll check it out, later. Right now, I am focused on a new job that works me 7 days a week, BUT I still want it! I don't face book, either..... maybe I'm missing something, but SP is all I can handle right now! emoticon

    I like Pinterest. I will look for you there. When I suggested you do it on Facebook, I meant setting up a business page, not a personal one.

    Pretty cool page!! I hope it brings you some new business. emoticon

I used to be on Facebook and didn't like because of their privacy problems so got out. I started Pinterest but didn't really get it so haven't done much there. For your business, though, it is perfect. emoticon

I really like how happy and upbeat you are and love, love, LOVE pinterest too! It's very addicting. I followed you on there, but your link was separated in the post. I think it should be:

    Yep Bobbi...I finally took the Pinterest plunge recently too. It is addictive, and I have to limit my time there...I'm also limit time on FB. Just not enough hours in the day otherwise. I'll check you our on Pinterest...good luck with the site. It's great to be back on the Teddy Bear Team with you again.
Blessings, BevBear

Update: couldn't find you on Pinterest...pasted link but didn't get to your page. emoticon emoticon

    Facebook is huge for local businesses. You just need to know how to manipulate it so it doesn't cost you. Pintrest has been vital for those with larger inventories. I'm on a PR committee for Dunedin and am always looking for the most effective ways to hit market demographics. Embrace the technology..and abuse it, Bobbie!

    I am sorry but something is not right with the link. If you use the add a link it would make it much easier.
