No podcast this week. Yeah I know I just got started again.
I'll be moving my audio equipment to a different room, and I'll be taking this week to relearn a few things so I can get the audio levels correct.
I might release a mini episode later this week if I get everything working.
Thanks for all your support and feedback.
Last week's episode: blogoklahoma.com/blog.aspx?id=2225
Posted this rant about Facebook on Facebook last night. More people saw it than our last podcast announcement. Really??
Facebook doesn't like us. Feelings mutual.
Yes its time again for yet another Facebook rant, sorry.
Since we started posting here again, exactly 2 post got over 20 views, the rest are in single digits. (And we like each and every one of those views - thank you for liking us)
In the past we got more views for stupid random cat pictures than we did for anything else. So what's the point?
It appears Facebook won't show you our posts unless we pay them. Tell us we're wrong.
We stay on Facebook because you don't close off any opportunity to connect with your audience. So we trudge on though. We continue to share Blog Oklahoma updates, new member blog announcements, blogging and writing tips, and yes even stupid random cat pictures all in an effort to keep you informed and engaged.
We believe in the Oklahoma blogging community, and we'll continue in our efforts to keep you informed and connected.
Sorry for this rant, but Facebook is frustrating when you don't think you're reaching everyone you can. Its said you get more engagement and views when people "like" your posts, but how can they "like" them if they don't see them?
Again thank you for reading this and for liking, following, circling, and subscribing to Blog Oklahoma. We appreciate you.
Do you have any suggestions? Ideas? Random cat pictures?
Are you tired of not seeing posts from certain people in your Facebook feed? Well there is a way around that. Turn on "Get Notifications". Anytime that person (or page) posts something, you'll get a notification.
I just went through and checked "Get Notifications" for all of my family, some friends, and a few select pages. So now, hopefully, I'll stop missing those important posts Facebook doesn't deem important enough to put in your feed.
