This is serious work! Not only was it hard to create the campaign, but it’s hard to make it move. An online friend and fellow crowd funding person said it was probably less painful and more productive to just get a job at a fast food chain and earn the money that way. But I had to try it!…it’s the thing to do, I’m learning a lot about social networking, which is cool…It only took two threats, one from Twitter and one from Facebook to get me to fly right.
Can you believe it? It doesn’t seem possible but yes I was threatened by both websites to have my profiles removed…little old me??? what the heck could I have possibly done wrong?…Evidently it’s not cool to tweet celebrities…unless you are telling them how fabulous they are…I thought that was what Twitter was all about? You know getting your info into the hands of people who would normally not listen?…well not only are they listening, but they are complaining. I tried to see who it was that tattled, perhaps gaining clues by finding my profile blocked by someone like Sharon Osborne or something…I did Tweet Chaz Bono too…and today there is an article that he’s lost 60lbs…maybe it was him? Maybe my tweet was messing with his mojo?
Well I don’t have the time or the patience to try to figure out that mystery. Suffice it to say I pissed someone off! same on Facebook. Tn that case I was putting peoples email addresses into the search engine on the page trying to find their Facebook pages. REALLY?? What the heck is wrong with that? With all the things I have to do, I offered to make a Facebook page for the Detroit Society of Women Painters and Sculptors (DSWPS), they are great organization…but need a little help getting things into the 21 century. I know I would certainly attend more meetings if I got a notice of them on Facebook and trust me their meetings are well attended and fun. What they need are some young people to join the ranks and the only way that is going to happen is if they have a web presence.
Well I set up two pages one just a info page and one a group page…I invited all the members I knew already but I did not know very many people at all. So I invited the past president and the current president to be administrators and told them to invite the membership. Now it’s almost a year later and there are only 30 members who have connected…5 of those are new in the past few days since my wee campaign to friend them all and add them to the page. Yes and that was what got me warned that I was using the site for inappropriate purposes. WOW!
Yes I tend to believe I never do anything wrong…but I think in these cases…I didn’t. It’s all a learning curve I guess, anyways it’s a funny story at parties…My husband as he likes to be referred to in my musings ( no names please ) took great pleasure telling people this weekend on the golf course that his wife is on Twitter and CrackBook for all of 24 hours and manages to get warnings about termination of her accounts. I’m really “OUT THERE” he says..and he is very “IN THERE!”…and that pretty much sums it up in a nut shell.
Please go Check out my Indiegogo page!…http://bit.ly/dietersunite . I’m not sure what will happen if I have to get more “OUT THERE” than I already am.
of course you are out there-that’s what we love about you…people get very sensitive about weight issues, as I’m sure you know so no surprise that you got in a little bit of hot water. Your work depends on a certain amount of boundary-pushing for its success, so I’d say you SUCCEEDED.
Thanks KA…I hope I can succeed in other ways too.
