Hello, hello! Well, I’ve been busy testing out several things and wanted to update you on the results. You ready?
OK, enough shenanigans, we need to get through this post. Our Fan Page features a lot of links to stories and profiles that I find around the Internet that don’t necessarily translate to an entire post — but they’re still very cool to look at and read. I also post (what I think are) amazing images, too. I try not to cross-pollinate much because I like fresh content on both the blog and the fan page. But I did do this…
The updated menu on the side has an All About Fauxology tab which links to our Mission Statement and other cool things, including a Contact Us form. We’ve added our Twitter feed and the brand-new YouTube channel. Best of all, there is a Contests & Giveaways tab which can keep you updated on all the current opportunities you have to win a great prize. It’s divided into three categories: The Deets (which is currently showcasing info on the gorgeous Royal Stencil Crèmes and a Giveaway), Week-long Series opportunities (only a few days left to submit your Column projects!) and the Photo Contests. The next Photo Contest is in June and it is a great prize. I hope these enhance your Fauxology experience on Facebook!
Our YouTube Channel is new but we will be updating it with videos on both decorative painting in design and online marketing bites. There’s a very cool announcement coming up about Twitter as well. That’s all I can say for now since there’s so much more to come to compliment our Building Your Online Brand class at IDAL.
A personal triumph for me is that we sent out our first Fauxology newsletter this morning — it rounds up the current goings-on here at the blog as well as a sneak peek into what’s coming up in June. If you’ like to sign up to receive future issues, the form to join our mailing list is on our Fauxology home page.
As a final, I wanted to let you know that yours truly is being featured in the Faux by Kathy website as both a blogger (home page profile) and as a Preferred Decorative Artisan with images of our work. On the blogger article, you find out exactly what jumpstarted Fauxology. (It involves the word “Intervention”.) Faux by Kathy is a fantastic site for faux finishers as they post info on products, workshops and offer a slew of resources, including a free Finish of the Month series. It is run by the lovely Kathy Carroll and is definitely worth checking out.
Any thoughts on the improvements and coming attractions? Have a great day!
