Fun fact: the word “twitterpated” originated in 1942 from the movie Bambi. Who knew?
I’ve joined Twitter to promote my patterns and stay in the loop on the whole yarn and knitting front. I never ever thought I would, but as a vehicle for making quick connections and getting the word out about things, it makes sense. I’m still a bit confused by the whole hashtag thing but I’m sure I’ll get used to it with time. I am, however, completely lost as to who to follow and how to find people so if you have a Twitter account or know of some interesting people to follow, please let me know! You can click on the button to the right to follow me, if you’d like.
I’ve also created a Facebook page for Shoelaceswitcher Designs which you can go ‘like’, if you’d like. 🙂 This blog is still going to be my main point-of-contact as far as social media goes since, let’s face it, I generally have more to say than can fit in a 140 character Tweet or a random Facebook status update. However, I am happy to reach people through whatever methods they prefer, so if Facebook or Twitter are you’re thing, I’m there!
I’m also on Pinterest, which is a pretty fun site if you haven’t checked it out yet. It’s basically a virtual pinboard, kind of like visual bookmarks, where you post photos that link to stuff you like and people can see and then repin and share as they like. I have a board for knitting, spinning, recipes, and wedding ideas. I’ve also added one specifically for my patterns, which when you click on the photos link back to Ravelry. Useful! Let me know if you’re on Pinterest, I’d love to follow you there.
In other news, I’m getting things set up to publish my next new pattern and I’m getting all jittery about it! I think because this is going to be my first paid pattern it’s making me a little nervous. The pattern testers loved it, which reassures me, but the perfectionist in me is still wringing her busy little hands. Stay tuned!
