Facebook Fan Pages

A lot of crafting folks these days have gone to personal Facebook pages and Fan Facebook pages. I thought about doing that some time ago but then decided not to for 3 main reasons...

  • 1. Fans are fanatics and by definition that means... a person with an extreme and uncritical enthusiasm or zeal. Now when I read it that way, and took it for what was defined, it actually scared the chit out of me. I am not sure I want anyone to be extreme zealous of anything about me. Okay maybe Denzel Washington or Sean Connery, but that is where I draw the line *okie smiles at the thought of Denzel or Sean stalking her and swears Sean could be 105 and she would still do him*.
  • 2. I would have to post on two different pages. *okie does a few sideways glances* and we all know I am a little to lazy for doing such a thing.
  • 3. I would have to separate *okie is so glad for spell check because she spell separate wrong every time* my crafting from my personal life and's impossible. Crafting is such a huge part of me I don't think I can separate it. I have been crafting since I was 8 years old and have always been working on one thing or another throughout my life.
I can understand why some people have separated their personal Facebook pages and their Fan pages, a lot of crafters I know sell things or teach classes...well make a business out of it and I think it would be easier to keep it all straight for them. Seems like it would take a lot of time to keep up with two pages and a website along with everything else and that would take more time away from crafting for me.

But let's face it my dear friends....I haven't done it because I am too dang lazy and I just wanna make chit!! *okie crosses her arms across her chest, smiles and lifts her chin in a 'that's that' manner and gives a nod*


  1. I agree with you totally !! I used to be a facebook addict but now I'm a blogger addict!! I'm sure some of the blogs I comment on think I'm stalking them - I'm not, OK!! I just love seeing what everyone is up to, I don't have the time to hit facebook anymore. Happy days :-)

  2. I totally agree with you on this topic and by the way, I think I'd also do Sean Connery no matter how old he was!!!

    You made my day reading that!

  3. Glad you didn't go that route since I'm not a facebooker :)

  4. Sean IS just about 105. But I agree, I would, too, LOL.

  5. Glad you made the choice you did Okie, love you just the way you are. Seems like Old Sean would be a very busy boy, cause I'd do him in Macy's window! hugs, eileen

  6. I too am Happy that you made the right choice
