|Social Networking Used to Be Easy…phone by Jessiretro|
I interviewed one of my favorite Etsy shops a few months back and was in total shock when Mary told me she did very little (if any) social networking. With almost 2800 sales (not including a second shop that was open before) since opening in 2008, it only then occurred to me that some people, like her, are faring well without the social networking bug. She spends time in her shop and on her photos, making sure they are the best they can be.

Perhaps for some of you it’s just a challenge to get the camera working properly and photos uploaded to Etsy, and believe me I feel your pain (two years later I still don’t know what all the buttons on my Nikon are for…) I’m here to let you in on a little secret. Back in December 2009 I did not know what a blog was. I was working on my fantasy novel, and most of my freelance was written in Word and sent in Emails. Blogging, Tweeting and using Facebook was a whole new concept, and something I did not do. I was wondering what people were talking about when they were “Tweeting” and I thought it may be a fad that may pass. Boy, was I wrong.

It is important to remember that Rome was not built in a day nor will your social networking empire. I still don’t use the Twitter as much as I should.
