Now that I have your attention, I am offering a giveaway to go along with my burning question. If you make it to the end of this long winded post, leave me a comment and one of you will receive this little quilt as a parting gift.
Actually, it is a two part question – 1) are you on Facebook (or other social media) and 2) If you are, what is the percentage of your time spent on other social media vs Blogging?
I ask this question because, I feel like a 19th century woman hopelessly trapped in the 21st century. In 1994 we bought our first computer. It was really for the children to use as an educational resource. I swore that I was NEVER going to use it and I kept my promise for quite while. Even after the 4th or 5th computer I found I was still only using it for e-mail.
Then my friend Cyndi (Busy Thimble) said she had started a Blog. What???? My friend, my cohort, my inspiration for so many of my reproduction quilts was heading over to the dark side! How could I let her get trapped in this world all by herself? I spent the next few years “lurking” around Blogland until I started my own in September of 2014.
It has been a wonderful experience. I have “chatted” with so many wonderful quilters and have even had the privilege of meeting a few of you face to face. I enjoy the slower pace of a Blog and I do not plan to give it up any time soon.
I have however noticed that a lot of people are moving to the faster paced and perhaps easier to post venues. I am on Facebook, in fact I have two accounts. Both were set up by other (well meaning) people and I can’t figure out how to get the older one down (see what I mean?).
My dilemma is how to best utilize my time. I am not willing to ignore my Blog buddies only to scroll through Facebook for hours on end (it takes me hours because just when I see something I like, whoosh, it’s gone and I spend way too long looking for it again – see what I mean????).
So, I thought if I had input from all of you as to how you spend your Internet time it might help me in my quest to organize mine!
Thanks for working your way down to this point. I’ve kept you so long I promise I will add a few surprises to keep the little quilt company in the package.
I will use my random generator (grandson picks the number) and announce a winner on Thursday May 25. If you are a “no reply” Blogger, please make sure to leave me your e-mail address so that I can contact you. Thanks for your time!
