Weekend Coffee Share Memo RE: 1000 Speak

I will not make a habit of this, but given the number of you who wrote about #1000Speak in coffee posts over the last month, I think it is appropriate. This tweet is pinned to the top of my Twitter profile.

One of the things I am doing is compiling a library of Tweets that @1000Speak admins can copy and paste to send from that account and from their personal accounts. I don’t have the time right now to go through four weeks’ worth of linkies and find your posts. If you wrote a coffee post that talked primarily about 1000 Speak OR a compassion post on Feb. 20 and you would like me to include a link in the 1000 Speak tweet library, drop  links on this thread and I will snag the tweets at my convenience and add them to the library.

A Facebook Note

Sourcerer’s page is 9 likes away from having 100 followers. I know that’s not a big number, but it was stalled around 80 for most of last year, so I’m pleased that it’s picked up a few likes over the past couple of weeks. I’ll send out enough invitations to push it over the top later this month if I have to. For now, I am waiting to see how close it can get to 100 organically.

We’re publicizing links from three blogs to that page: This one, Sourcerer itself, and Part Time Monster. I am also doing my best to share at least a couple of links with good photos there every day.

Basically, I am sharing things for a very small group of friends on my timeline and using the pages for public posts.

The reason I’ve connected this blog to Sourcerer’s page is that I can only connect one Facebook account of my own to the blog. That’s the busiest page we have, so I think it’s the one that has the best chance of growing this year.

My Just Gene’O page is exclusively for manually sharing links and photos for bloggers from my Facebook feeds. It occurred to me to do this yesterday when I realized I had four things I wanted to share, but nowhere to share them because I’d posted both on my timeline and at Sourcerer within the last hour.

The reason I am displaying Sourcerer’s timeline on the sidebar rather than followers is so our readers can scroll through that feed from the blogs and interact on the page when they see things that interest them. I use other bloggers’ Twitter widgets to retweet things quite often. I figure there must be someone out there who might use the Facebook widget in a similar way.

If you have a page for your blog, I am happy to trade likes with you. I use pages to keep up with bloggers on Facebook who aren’t personal friends there. So, if you call my attention to your page and I see a lot of stuff there that I think my peeps might like, I’ll likely put it on a list and give it regular likes to get it into my main news feed. I’ve been doing this for a few weeks now, and it is working well.

I am also playing around with making some memes. Just getting started with that, and not all of them will be good. Here’s a silly one I created last night because my stepdaughter suggested that I need an #AmWriting meme. I don’t think this one’s a big winner, but I’ll share it here for your amusement anyway.

spongebob_amwriting_quickmeme_byGeneOThis is my last free day before I go back to work, so spending the afternoon putting as much blogging for the next two weeks together as possible. I have four new contributors to announce at Sourcerer on Monday an Tuesday. From there, we’ll build back up to the pace we blogged at there during the spring and summer. Here’s to an awesome 2015!

I’ll have a coffee post here next Saturday. Probably not much else before then.
