Farewell to Facebook

Just a quick note here to tell folks that I have closed down my account at FaceBook (which would include the 'pages' I was maintaining). It was never a very good place to promote myself and has become even worse as they have made their changes.

Yes, it was nice to be able to keep up with a few folks but I don't really need FB for that. And I suppose if I do feel left out I could restore my account. Don't count on that, though.

The fact is, I can do much better for myself by concentrating on my blogs and website -- places that show up in search engines and actually bring interested people to me. I doubt I have ever sold anything -- book, art, tee shirt, whatever -- via folks finding me on FaceBook. This blog, on the other hand, is far more effective. So expect me to post more here to make up for not doing so at FB.

I realised some time ago that FB wasn't for me. I didn't even bother to promote my book there and I haven't missed the place either since permenently leaving.
