As you may notice, my blog is now directly tied into Facebook so that everytime I update my blog, it updates into my Facebook. Neat, eh? Well, here’s something else that’s neat.
I’ve finally done it. That’s right, I’ve done it.
My obvious and overwhelming arrogance over the wee bit of attention generated with my photography has prompted me to start my own Facebook Group/Fan Page. I mean, really, how much off-putting can you get?
Okay, this is the real reason behind starting the page. It’s been a fun first 5 or 6 years doing photography and never would I have thought events would carry in their current direction. Someone obviously had better plans for my life than those I laid out for myself. However, the conundrum of marketing of my art on the internet and maintaining my Facebook profile has posed a personal conflict of interest. Therefore I’m separating my personal profile (private) from my fan profile (public).
The fan page will be used as a communication center to anyone and everyone who desires to keep updated on anything related to my photography. This means exhibit announcements, sales and giveaways, my blogs, external photo news and links, an occasional model call, and finally yes – my actual photographs. This way those who want to keep up with my fledgling photography pursuit are able to, and those who don’t won’t have to. Likewise, outsiders who want to follow my photography without knowing me personally (or freaking me out) finally can.
Though I will no longer post photography-related items to my private page, I will still continue to use that account personally to keep in touch with the people in my life including all my friends, peers, volleyball cohorts, a wayward Red Sox fan, and childhood friends who I haven’t spoken a single word with in like 15 years.
Eventually, every “friend” on my Facebook will receive an invitation to join the group, so don’t be surprised if you receive a notification as such.
So if you’re interested, that’s cool, I’ve always appreciate your support! If it’s not your cup of tea, I won’t take it personally if you don’t accept! However, I will passive-aggressively guilt-trip you with my wounded over-the-top ego, wondering why you’ve completely abandoned our Facebook friendship.
