I'm a Facebookin' Fool

Been spending way too much time on Facebook lately. I don't know if that's a good thing or what.

Although I've had a Facebook account for quite a while, I never got into it much. No special reason. Just didn't.

Then, at the end of January or beginning of February, I started a "Fan Page" for people who grew up, went to high school, whatever, in the same town as the one I grew up in. That would be Ridgewood, NJ. I figured it would be a great way to attract a few old friends and such.

As of today, that Fan Page has over 2300 members! I've reconnected with lots of old friends as have many others who grew up in Ridgewood. The page has been written up in the local newspaper as well as other, North Jersey, publications. It's been mentioned on local blogs and is listed by the town's library as a "historical resource." It's mentioned on Ridgewood's Wikipedia page and it was even talked about on an NBC morning television show!

Tomorrow, there's a local city election in Ridgewood. A couple of groups have asked us to endorse two city council candidates. Most on the page don't live there any longer and, as such, can't vote. But many on the page still have family and friends who do and who can vote.

Last weekend, I decided to start another "Fan Page." This one designed to pimp the Pretty Girl Shooter blog. As of writing this update, it has 655 members and continues to grow. I'm hoping to hit a thousand by the end of this week. We'll see.

I don't write updates on the FB page like I do on the blog. Instead, I post links to any updates I post here. I've also been posting lots of pretty girl pics on the page. Many that I've never posted here. Also, because "fans" have asked, I've posted a bunch of BTS shots showing the lighting I use.

Obviously, it's Facebook so all the photos I'm posting there are "R" rated at most. I have posted some inferred nudes and other pics that go right up to the line, the nudity line, but that's as far as I've gone. Don't want the page shut down so that's as far as I'll continue to go.

If you're a Facebooker, have a look and click the "Like" button. Here's the link to the Pretty Girl Shooter Facebook page. Check it out! Click "Like" and send me some love!

BTW, I posted a permanent link, in the right-hand column, to Ed Verosky's eBook, "10 Ways to Improve Your Boudoir Photography Now." At $9.95, it's a most excellent deal! It contains great information for anyone pursuing boudoir photography, whether you're doing so already or want to add the genre to your bag of tricks. I've exchanged emails with some peeps who purchased it and they, like me, have good things to say about Ed's eBook.

The pretty girl at the top is Kayla. It's the most recent photo I posted on my Pretty Girl Shooter Facebook page. I call the image, "Interrogation Time."
