Do you Facebook?

For a long time I resisted joining Facebook. I already belonged to several online groups, mainly writing oriented, and these groups took up enough of what spare time I wanted to devote to online social interaction. I didn't need or want to spend even more time online.

Finally I broke down, at the urging of some of my author friends who already belonged to Facebook, and signed up for my very own Facebook account. It was like joining a secret society where I didn't know the secret handshake. I stumbled around the site trying to find my way.

I joined a couple of groups that looked interesting to me...writer related of course since that is my main interest. I discovered a few people that I already knew from other online groups that I belonged to (not Facebook groups) and invited them to become my Facebook friend. I searched for other people at Facebook that I might know, found some, and invited them to also become my FB friends. One thing led to another and first thing you know I had people inviting ME to become THEIR friend.

I created my very own group, Fans of Kristie Leigh Maguire, and invited people to join. I finally figured out that I could have my very own Official Public Writer Page and created that and invited people to join that.

I now have 109 fans at my Official Writer Page, 463 friends at my regular FB page, and 74 members at my fan page. AND I am enjoying Facebook! Wonders never cease. :)

I have a goal of having 1000 people join my Facebook Official Writer Page. Would YOU please help me reach my goal by joining?


  1. I haven't worked Facebook out yet! I go there but haven't a clue what I'm doing, or even why!

  2. Neither did I when I started and I can't say that I know all about Facebook even now, Lizzie. It's great networking though and an author needs to network wherever they can. Hey, a good place for you to start is by joining my FB Official Writer Page! :)
