something to honk about
I’ve read the blogging advice out there that says you should establish social media pages that connect to and promote your blog site. So I made a Facebook page for the Honking Goose pretty soon after starting this blog. On individual posts and pages it shows the ‘Like on Facebook’ widget. It sat there for a few days, lost and lonely, with zero likes. I thought to myself, “Instead of feeling bad that I don’t have any likes on the page yet, I’ll just make a joke out of it.” So I typed in a prompt, “You could be the 1st person to like the Honking Goose on Facebook.” I figured that might be incentive for someone to click the button, too, and it was. Soon I noticed the page had two likes. So then I thought, “I’ll just change it to ‘You could be the 3rd person to like the Honking Goose on Facebook'”.
This has turned into a running joke on my blog. Every time I see there has been another ‘like’ on the page, I just update the prompt to one more than that. Now instead of 😦 about how few likes there are, I lol every time I see it. And that makes me feel 😀 . I hope others are noticing it and getting a kick out of it, too.
And remember, YOU could be the nth person.
