The Importance of Social Marketing Optimization

I have asked a few of you that follow me on Twitter if you are going for quality or quantity of followers. What good are thousands of followers if your tweets are "lost in the stream of posts", unread, your links unclicked???

I choose my followers carefully. I don't automatically follow back everyone. If I find them interesting and fun, I follow back. OR they have something that I want to know about... enter James Dillehey..he is a well known book writer of Craft as a Business. Has appeared on various Craft television Shows.. a really interesting person.

We started a discussion about Art Fire and if he had reviewed it yet...not easy 140 characters at a time. And ended with James asking me to review Art Fire for publication on his blog!

So with out further ado... Craft Marketer Blog

Have you ever thought about

wanting a Commercial Kitchen?? One with a nice 3X6 foot gas flat top grill, a char broiler, a shiny stainless steel exhaust hood, and a sandwich board.

Just think if you had one of these well stocked babies in your kitchen! WHOO HOO! Midnight snacks would be on my list of things to DO!

Then I would also want terra cotta tiles on the floor and a sanitizing system built in..YIPPEE! I could just turn on the hose and spray down the kitchen squeegee the floor .. DONE!

But then reality sets in..commercial kitchen..I'd be in there cooking and therefore EATING...nevermind..

Rainy Days and Mondays~

Well I'm not DOWN! *smiles~ I'm looking forward to the germination of my seeds that I planted Thursday~

Today I'm taking the opportunity to cook a fabulous dinner from scratch~and catch up on a few household duties!

I started some beef stew..not something that I would normally do on the 1st of June..but today is quite cool..and rainy! I'll simmer said stew all day and add some potatoes and carrot an hour before serving..I'll also make some biscuits at that time.

I'm tackling Mount Laundry and I hope to get to the summit today!
