  1. I usually share photos cause I'm such a shutterbug. I have a hard time coming up w/ FB statuses....I used to update a lot years ago, but Russell doesn't like that I share too much personal info, so I keep it down to one or two a day.

  2. That's quite a list and most helpful. Thank you for compiling it. :)

    I find that I'm pretty much ignored on social media sites. I'll "like" other peoples' posts and I leave comments but hardly ever do I get a like or a comment in return. Maybe it is just me, I've always been shy and introverted and people read me wrong - they seem to think I'm stand-offish or worse,that I'm stuck-up. :(

  3. These are great prompts! Thanks for the inspiration. =0)

  4. Great list. I can definitely turn several of these into blog posts!

  5. Great list Valerie! I don't do much with social media because I usually don't get a response. If I start selling my things again, I will give it another try though.

  6. Just the inspiration I need lately. Thank you!


Your thoughts and ideas are an important part of the conversation, thanks for sharing!
