Conversation I had with myself yesterday:
Me: "I really feel like I need to have two separate blogs, but I wish there were a way to better integrate them."
Me2: "What if you created a Facebook page where you could post both?"
Me: "Like an actual page, page? Like for companies or brands or celebrities?!"
Me2: "Sure. Why not?"
Me: "But I'm not a celebrity. And treating 'SmoosieQ' as a brand seems so, so..."
Me2: "Savvy from a marketing/publicity/increased readership standpoint?"
Me: "Tacky. And narcissistic."
Me2: "You do realize you write about yourself, your life, your opinions, all the time -- and that you publish your writing hoping others will read it, right?"
Me: "You have a point."
So that's how I ended up with a separate Facebook page serving as a place to aggregate my blogs. And hopefully radio archives/links. And this is my self-conscious way of thanking those who've been kind enough to click "Like" in response to my invitation to do so.
I figure other bloggers whom I admire do it. It seems to be a marginally acceptable method of self-promotion. So...I'll give it a try, at least. Although now I feel some added pressure to regularly produce quality writing. Which might not be a bad thing. I guess we'll see. Anyway, thank you for *Liking* my page. I hope not to disappoint!
