I only recently realised that a lot of my favourite sewing blogs have Facebook pages. Why? Am I missing out? Should I start one for Crafting a Rainbow? Fill me in, people!
In truth, I’d drifted away from Facebook in the last years, until I became a Curvy Sewing Collective editor – we do all our planning in closed a Facebook group. Once I started spending more time there, I realised that lots of people I’m friends with on Twitter and Instagram are also active on Facebook… and when I became friends with them, Facebook started suggesting I might also want to “like” their blog pages.
(Myself, I only update my status once every month or two, and prefer just to comment on other people’s posts… and because of my profession, I try to keep my Facebook security really tight so students and their parents can’t find me!)
Which brings me to my current conundrum:
- Why do blogs have Facebook pages?
- Are there any readers who would rather follow me on Facebook than on Feedly or Bloglovin’?
What do you think?
