*Just checked this post in my WordPress app reader, and the online reader, and the facebook embed pic does not show there…a nuisance! It does show on my site, thankfully. Perhaps I wont be using this option much at all, at least not as a header pic! However, this post still mostly make sense without it. 🙂 Oh well, to see the facebook embed pic, requires a visit to my blog. Hmm, always something to learn.
Within the ever helpful WordPress tutorials, I happened upon a way to embed my facebook posts. I do have a facebook widget, and I do use “publicise” to send my posts from here, to there. However, I didn’t realise, I could imbed a post from there to here; and at such a good pixel size. Like this idea!
In a previous post, I shared about a grand plan to publish more (short) posts on facebook: because it was quicker – wanting to save time, as always! – and (supposedly) to reach a wider, audience….and then rounding them up here for a longer post, occasionally…and so on…and on..
That hasn’t worked as I thought it would; not a time-saver as I’d hoped. Also, with facebooks new algorithms, it seems unless I pay for my page to be promoted – which isn’t about to happen! – facebook severely limits the distribution of my posts. I’ll persevere with facebook – for now… Instagram seems a good place to share art, but it’s now owned by facebook, don’t know if I’ll bother with it.
Thought you may find this of interest (though you may well know these, somewhat trivialities), whether my audience of is of one, two or many, doesn’t really matter too much – though it matters a little, else, I wouldn’t bother to blog at all! And to sell some of my art does require an audience of sorts; though I’m not good with the marketing side of things.
As for this facebook embed option, I’ll use it sometimes, when time alludes me…just have to paste the url in here, add a title, and tags…and away it goes.. Just have to remember to turn off “publicise”, when I publish it here. *As per my above intro…may not use it, much at all, at least not as a feature pic.
I do like mucking about with, links, widgets and such like… Learnt a lot more about these wondrous things, when I managed recently to put on a new static front page/door to my site. I enjoy occasionally updating my site’s gallery entrance, rearranging the furniture, sweeping the porch, putting out fresh flowers….There’s lots of links there, (pretty rosy pink ones, which come with this WordPress theme) to make my site easy to travel around. *The link on my facebook imbed, goes to my front door.
Along with all the iPad art I do, I built and, continue to put together (play) 🙂 with my blog on my iPad.
I’ve rarely used desktop, or laptop computers. Not a vital item, when tackling the washing machine, and other domestic duties.
Way back, during my study days: a pen and paper were my constant companions, with my electric typewriter – loved that quick erase button – being the height of my techno tools!
Thank you, for making it to here, through all my digressions.
Lastly, but most importantly, thankful to God, in all things…..
