Communion Of Dreams

Sometimes, you just gotta admit that you’ve been defeated, and move on.

No, I’m not talking about my decision to have someone with a tractor come and till my garden this year, rather than doing it myself because of my recent muscle tear (which is actually healing quite well, thanks).

Instead, I’m talking about going on Facebook. Yeah, in spite of their privacy policies and the whole high-school-popularity-competition nonsense, I bit the bullet and signed up. A personal profile in my name, and when I can get a handle on the best way to do it I’ll also set up pages for my business, BBTI, and Communion of Dreams. If you have suggestions or pointers, feel free to drop me a note, leave a comment here, or (gods forbid, I can’t believe I’m saying this) post something to my ‘wall.’ And yes, you’re all invited to be my friend.

Well, now I feel like the last one standing. As such, I’m really interested in knowing how you were “defeated,” or how you came to “admit” being defeated. I have a lot of motivation to avoid the whole thing myself, but I always welcome any food for thought.

Hope you and Martha are well. Take care,

Heh – understood, Dan.

To be perfectly honest, I decided that this was a good step as a modern marketing technique for CoD and HFY, and that it would be better to have an established presence on Facebook as a real person with real friends prior to trying to promote the novel or memoir. The side benefit has actually been making connections with old friends who don’t tend to use the web the same way I do.

It’s an interesting culture. I’m not going to start telling people that they should join up, but I can see how some folks use it.

Cheers –

Jim D.
