Help! I’m now on Facebook and Pinterest!

I finally did it. I created a Facebook author/blog page! I even figured out how to put the widget in my right sidebar here on the blog, although at time of publishing this it still wasn’t showing up properly in Firefox (although Chrome is fine… weird) and I don’t that’s something you see if you’re viewing the blog on your phone… But hey, I still managed it! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m still working out what I’m doing with it, but I’m getting there. In the meantime, if any of you would be kind enough to drop by and “Like” my Facebook page I would really appreciate it. It’s a bit lonely over there at the moment… *tumbleweed rolls past as the wind howls*.

If you have a Facebook page, please leave me a link in the comments below so I can return the favour ๐Ÿ™‚

Also, if any of you have any Facebook wisdom/insight of the “if only I’d known this when I started using Facebook” kind, I’d really appreciate you sharing it with me! Are there any groups I should join, for example?

And as if that weren’t enough, I finally got onto Pinterest too. So far I only have a few boards, but it would be nice to have some friends on there. If you have an account, please let me know in the comments below so I can find and follow you ๐Ÿ™‚

You’ll see I also put together a little bookish social media graphic to put at the bottom of my posts. Clicking on the appropriate button will take you to my pages on Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads and Pinterest. Looking forward to “seeing” you there. If I’m not yet your friend on Goodreads or Twitter, leave me the links for those too so I can put that right!

200 followers! Woo-hoo!

Seriously though, this is amazing. Thanks so much to all of you who follows my various ramblings and occasional pictures of cake.

I’ll stop now before I start gushing, but I will take this opportunity to keep a promise I recently made (to some bloggers who will remain nameless ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) by featuring a couple of random gifs of Ewan McGregor…

Blogger Recognition Award

blogger recognition award badge

Thank you so much to both Vivian over at Outside Hook, Lia over at BookLand, Analee at Book Snacks and Safa at Books Over People for nominating me for the Blogger Recognition Award! Once again, sorry it’s taken me so long to respond…

The rules for this award are:

  • Select 15 other blogs you want to give the award to. You cannot nominate yourself or the person who has nominated you.
  • Write a post to show off your award! Give a brief story of how your blog got started, and give a piece or two of advice to new bloggers.
  • Thank whoever nominated you, and provide a link to their blog. List who youโ€™ve nominated in the post. Make sure to also attach the award itself! (You can do this by right-clicking, saving, and uploading the image above or the one below – there seem to be two different images).
  • Comment on each blog and let them know youโ€™ve nominated them. Provide a link to the award post you created.
  • Provide a link to the original post on Edge of Night. That way, anyone can find the original guidelines and post if needed, and we can keep it from mutating and becoming confusing!
