When Facebook Makes Me Smile

I enjoy trolling through Facebook.  Yes, it can be a time suck, but I consider it research for my job.  People post interesting articles, comments, bits and pieces of their lives.  (I follow my family separately, for good reason.)  It can be a great tool for authors and others to get the word out on their products and I admit that I’ll pick up on a book I may have otherwise missed.  Yesterday alone I downloaded 3 books of authors I hadn’t read before because they were free reads.  Sometimes there are nice surprises.


But, most of all, I get a kick out of some of the pictures and sayings posted (although I think there should be a whole different stream for cat and dog pics).  So, I thought I share a few of the ones that caught my eye this week.

    Hi Barbara….I just started facebook again, and after about 2 weeks I’m quitting it again! It certainly is a time suck and I’d rather be reading a book, cooking, sewing or spending time outdoors than on the computer. That’s just me!

    By the way, I visited Dianna Love’s web page yesterday and downloaded a free short story “Firebound” and I was pleasantly surprised! i didn’t think I’d enjoy that type of story but I did. Now I know who Phoenix is. I knew he was a gargoyle who enjoyed eating his “nuts” but now I know more of his personality and I love him. Good marketing on her side ;) because now I will certainly read “Alterant” and any of the others. What a smart woman who I greatly admire.

    My mother is a nursing instructor — does that count as a School Nurse in a roundabout way? :)

    You should see some of the comics we’ve been posting to Exit Laughing’s facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/exitlaughing). It’s one of my favorite things about promoting a humor book — you get plenty of excuses to laugh!

    Dee – you rock!!! Thanks so much for reading FIRE BOUND and for your very nice comments. Hope you have fun with the rest of the Belador books. I try to be careful not to get sucked into the FB vortex, but it’s hard to resist some days. :)

    These are super funny! Thanks for the smile so early in the morning. I don’t remember having a school nurse but I have a friend that is a nurse who’s receiving her Phd in nursing this weekend. I’m super proud of her.

    As a medical romance writer I love sharing stories of love about nurses that care with compassion for the people around them.


    Keep up the wonderful piece of work, I read few blog posts on this web site and I conceive that your site is rattling interesting and holds lots of wonderful info.


    I think other website owners should take this site as an example , very clean and excellent user friendly style and design . “He who lives without folly isn’t so wise as he thinks.” by Francois de La Rochefoucauld.

    I think this website contains some really wonderful info for everyone :D . “Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” by Ralph Waldo Emerson.

    That is the suitable weblog for anyone who wants to seek out out about this topic. You notice so much its almost exhausting to argue with you (not that I actually would need…HaHa). You positively put a new spin on a subject thats been written about for years. Nice stuff, simply nice!

    If the region you live in has tornadoes frequently, then building
    a storm cellar might not be a bad idea. There is also nothing quite like
    reading the blog of a young enthusiastic couple remodeling
    a 54 year old house. Try to approach projects with baby steps
    while keeping your mind open to new ideas.
