Decided to join Facebook.

I decided to join Facebook a little while back now. This was the result of trying to get a little more of a social vibe out and about. Twitter seemed to be more of a place to find salespeople selling their stuff (not much unlike what I was doing), but you could meet some fantastic people on there too! Facebook seems to link up more with people I have not probably seen for many years.

I did find it strange how a social networking site wanted to know your birthday, and such. That is the thing I liked the most about twitter. You just needed a name, and a password to get in. I do not think it is a good idea to put all of that information on a site, but many people put that and much more on there.

I still prefer twitter over facebook, for now. It is probably because I love its format, and its ease of use. I find  facebook so far has a bulkiness to it. It appears awkward, but maybe after I experiment with it I may come to enjoy its features much more later on.

Just that I done some searching for book clubs and what not, and could not really find much on the facebook search engine. Maybe it is me being cumbersome, not putting in the key words for the search. With twitter I can really focus on a search just by typing in the genre of book i write, and it will take me to people who are conversing about it. Twitter does have some amazing strengths...

I will have to keep experimenting with Facebook to see what it can do for me... Till next time...

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
