Going social

So – and possibly against my better judgement – I’m now on Facebook. This is in part to give my posts a little bit more reach (even if I have exactly no friends yet – not because I am a social idiot, but because I don’t want to be friends with my actual friends – see Covert Operations for why).

It will also let me source for/share relevant content a little bit more easily. I struggle with not being able to share news articles more effectively (without paying for a Business plan to be able to use plugins). Any advice on this is welcomed.

It’s a little strange – being a visually quiet WordPress user, and now being a faceless Facebook user. Yet, I realise that there are also communities there (and everywhere) that I could learn from, and people out there who might benefit from some of my stories and experiences. Will it work out that way? Who ever knows.

Anyway, if you’d like to interact there as well, do hit me up/follow the posts. If you’re sufficiently irked by the Cambridge Analytica fiasco to not want to, that’s not a problem.

Let’s see where this goes.

Question to my followers/readers: are you also on Facebook and has it worked out better for you?

  1. I have to say – I haven’t plucked up the courage to join Facebook again. I don’t think I’m strong enough to see the pictures of bumps/pregnancies/scans/babies but I agree it’s definitely got a huge reach on social media. It’s still one of the best outlets.
    I do have twitter and instagram, but I don’t update twitter nearly enough and my IG doesn’t feature enough about miscarriage/trying to conceive etc.. It would be interesting to see if you find the Facebook route more beneficial! Let us know how it goes 🙂

    1. For now it’s really limited. My friend list includes me, myself and I. But I have joined an infertility support group that seems vibrant, and I guess because I have done this four times before, I can help with a couple of questions… The interface is also more immediate, familiar and friendlier than some of the forums, I find.

      But I don’t see how it will change the reach of the blog unless I start dishing out my posts in the infertility group, which I am strangely also not ready to do. Does this even make any sense?? Haha. I’ll keep you posted!

      1. Haha, not it totally does! 1 step at a time! Just being on it is enough just now 🙂 It’s nice that you can offer a bit of advice – I still feel a bit lost about the whole I.V.F thing as I’ve still not started my first round yet, so I’m sure there’s plenty of people out there with questions needing answered!!

        I’m sure before long you’ll be ready to put yourself out there a bit more! x
