Default Do you use the Gallery here, Facebook, Tweet, Blog, Pin or ?

I'm just curious...

Do you use a combination of these?

I have a blog....I was doing pretty good, ok...I was doing ok...haha! But then I lost 260lbs I mean got divorced...haha...and so have been away for a couple years. Times change, people change...technology definitely changes.

So what are your two favorite ways to show the world your goods!

Only one favourite for me, here .
My blog is lucky if it gets a couple of favourite cards each month posted on it, I use it more for photography.
And since I can't get on Pinterest without signing up for Facebook or Twitter first, I'm currently doing without all of them.

Not on Facebook, have no blog, cannot get sucked into Pinterest. I an on Twitter and I do have a gallery here, but it has been long neglected. Not because I'm not making cards, just haven't posted anything cuz life gets in the way sometimes. I still stalk the daily additions tho.

I have a gallery here, and was uploading quite a few cards. However I was not getting many comments or visits or favorites, which hurt my feelings UNTIL I realized the cards that people did respond to were the House Mouse images in which I used decorative paper and ribbon. That's what seems to be popular among a lot of SCS members. I rarely do that type of style though. SO, I began to post my work on my Blog. In that way, I have found a group of people who share a similar style. I regularly visit several blogs and keep in contact with those bloggers.

I rarely do cute, bows and decorative paper just aren't my style. I love the discussions and people I have come to know on SCS. I have gotten great information, and inspiration from the talented people on this site. I've made some wonderful friends on this site and I visit it several times a week. However, my sensitive ego likes it better when I post my cards to my Blog.

I probably will only post here. I love the idea of a blog etc but as you ladies said it is time consuming...we'll see.

SC Magnolia, it's interesting with all the people here there only cards with House Mouse gets noticed.

Jimmi, you are cracking me up...I use to be like that! Wonder if it will happen again when I get comfortable with my work again. As for now...NOT! LOL

Thanks ladies

I don't have a blog or facebook either but I do use Flickr. I use Pinterest to "pin" cards I see around the internet. I'd love it if SCS's gallery had the "pin" feature - I could pin even more lovely cards!!!

I mostly share my cards by mailing them out or gifting them. I started a gallery here, but got a little discouraged by all the "CASE'd and didn't give me credit" threads that were popping up. It's a new year, though, so maybe I'll start uploading again and see how it goes. No twitter, blog, pinterest or the electronic face for me -- nothing against them, just not really interested in knowing what my niece's friend's sister had for lunch today .

No blog as time won't permit that. I am most active here on SCS, visit SU's Stampin' Connection few times a week. Just joined Pinterest but haven't pinned a thing yet. On FB every day mostly to connect w family across the country. No twitter for me.

I really do use it all, except Facebook - Twitter won that one. I really like my blog and have a ton that I visit regularly. I like the blogs because you get stories, funny antics, etc. They just come with a more personal touch and I like that.

I love the boards here and on a couple of other sites for the galleries and also the discussions.

Yep. I'm an addict.

SCS is the only place I post cards . I use the gallery and a couple of other blogs for inspiration. I am not on Face book, twitter, Pinterest or any other social network site. I don't want all of my spare time spent on the Internet.

Wow, interesting to read how many are not social networking! Well I do all those things...except tweet. But if my kids had there way (and they may soon lol) I would be on twitter. I don't post any of my craft stuff on those places thought...probably start to build up my gallery here and maybe blog. That's it though!

Thanks for sharing!!

I am active on my blog and Pinterest..I have a Twitter that automatically tweets my blog posts, but I don't really do much there. Pinterest is ANOTHER story altogether! I'm totally addicted and love it!! I am very visual so I guess it appeals to me with all the pretty pictures!!

Check my blog for a link to my Pinterest and check me out anytime!!

I was talking to my DD the other day and I asked her what the "...difference is between a TWEET and a TWEXT?" I got my tongue all mixed up with my "T's" and my "W's." We had a good laugh over that one.

I have a Facebook page, but I don't post any of my crafts there.

I joined Facebook after getting laid off from a local newspaper two years ago, when journalism took a nosedive into the economic toilet. I was in the last major round of layoffs. In all, the downsizing affected more than 200 people during a 13-month period. Facebook lets us keep in contact, even though many of my former coworkers were forced to leave the state to find work.

Since then, my local scrapbooking group created a Facebook group where we plan our semi-annual weekend retreats and occasional crops and a few school chums and former neighbors have tracked me down. It's kind of fun to reconnect.

I have a Twitter account, but don't post on it, don't read it, don't do anything with it.
My theory: Only twits tweet on Twitter.
No offense to those who use it! I'm mostly joking!! Mostly . . .

Actually, I found that the people I knew (unknown and lesser-known authors, some published, some not) who posted on Twitter were sending out self promos that nobody else read. It's kind of like sitting in a stadium, everyone rooting for themselves, but nobody is listening to any voice but their own.

I am on facebook and love pinterest, I don't post cards though. Since I mostly copy cards I love I don't bother putting them out there.
Sometimes if I am in an especially creative mood I will post my card here (and assuming I remember to take a picture).

I have a blog, fb, pinterest, a twitter account that I never use, and I post to the galleries here and a few other sites, but my favorite is YouTube. I started making videos of my mini-albums and posting them to YT and that's where I've found the biggest audience. It helps drive traffic to my Etsy store. My blog has been sadly neglected ever since.

The "CASE'd but didn't give me credit" threads kept me from posting my cards also! Not because I thought people wouldn't give me credit but I was terrified that I would pull an image from the recesses of my memory, use it on a card, and then upset someone by not giving them credit because I can't remember it was someone else's idea first! I am convinced that I've never had an original thought LOL!

Lydia convinced me to not worry about that when I started the HYCCT challenges last October. I'm so glad she did because I won the Scrapbox!!! LOL!

I only post my cards here. I'm on FB but hardly use it - just stalk my teenager daughter. I love Pinterest but I haven't posted any of my cards there. I usually make my cards about 15 minutes before I need to give them away -heck, there's seldom time for photography LOL!

That's exactly it! If I made something that was CASE worthy, I'd be thrilled

I'm not familiar with the HYCCT challenges . . . I'm going to check that out . . .

They run all through October in aid of Breast Cancer Awareness - it's a big card drive for the MD Andersen centre in TX. So you'll have to wait a few more months to participate in this year's one, but you can still find the threads from last year here: Hope You Can Cling To Challenge Forum - Splitcoaststampers, and the gallery link is here: Stampin Up!

Thanks for the info, Sabrina. My mom is a breast cancer survivor, so that is something I would be most interested in joining.
