You could probably tell I’m on several social networking sites.
However, one that I never had listed was Facebook.
I am on Facebook with a personal profile, but I mostly kept it private and hardly mentioned it to most people.
Recently, I’ve been chatting a lot with acquaintances I met elsewhere on FB and did not have on my FB friend list, as well as FB pages (who cannot comment on even your public posts).
While sharing photos with one of those pages (waves “hello” in case he is reading this 😉 ), I realized it was getting difficult to remember where the best place would be to post something where he and others could see it, without having it show up in my main galleries (Flickr, deviantART, etc). And he still couldn’t reply to that image directly for various reasons. Not very convenient for either of us!
So I decided to create a Facebook page for my sewing and art projects.
You can find it here: CFGriffith Projects — as well as in the right sidebar with my other social media links.
I think I will continue posting things on my FB page, such as the tools I use for sewing and drawing, or in-progress images and sketches. The types of things I most likely would not want on my blog, Flickr, or deviantART gallery. Not to mention, also to post links to finished projects on deviantART, my website, and photo albums on Flickr. A bit more of a “chatty” and quick/less-detailed updating place, if you know what I mean.
Also, I’m still currently on a bit of a break from sewing, so I’m mostly focusing on art at the moment. I plan to eventually balance both, but I suspect it will be a low-traffic page unless I’m really working on a lot of projects quickly. And then, I may not be doing much updating so I can focus on those.
