For several weeks now, I've been toying with the idea with starting a Facebook Fan page to for my photography. It would be a nice place anyone could go to view some of my work without having to be my "friend," because I'm just not one of those people that will friend just anybody.
I mean complete strangers don't need to know when I'm having a "Monday" or my undying love for Pumpkin Spice Lattes, or when my cooking goes and awry and I burn my dinner (which I just did by the way.) Probably my Facebook friends don't even want to know this but it's part of the package of being my friend.
I know your saying, "Why not just post more on your blog create another website?" Facebook is easy. Easy to upload to, organize, comment, share and tag. That, and practically everyone is on Facebook now. Heck, even my 85 year-old grandma is on Facebook.
Anyway, I hesitated in doing a Fan page because I worried that it might be viewed as conceited. I posted this question as my status a while back, and all my friends said to go for it. I told myself, "Why not? It's only Facebook."
So I am.
I know I'm not Adams, Liebowitz, Avedon, or Stieglitz. I'm also not [b]ecker, Jose, or Jasmine (West Coast wedding photogs, whose blogs I follow.)
As I state on my page: I'm just a girl that likes to play with a camera. Thank you for checking out my work. I appreciate your comments.
I'm truly humbled by the number of fans I've already acquired. I feel like Sally Field accepting the Academy award. "You like me. You really like me." Then I have to remind my self. It's only Facebook.
Oh, and if you are interested in friending me on Facebook, send me a message first, and be forewarned. I do LOVE Pumpkin Spice Lattes.
