Facebook Drama, TPT Sale, & INB GIVEAWAY!

I typically stay away from facebook because of the drama that ensues from it's news feeds, timelines, and comments. However, about 2 weeks ago, I decided to put my personal issues aside and FINALLY create a facebook page for my blog. So, I did. It was great! I started following all of you and learning about giveaways, linkys, and teacher tips from all over the blogosphere with just a scroll. I was commenting and liking and posting and within a week I had earned 0 followers.

Boo! I was sad.

"Why is this?" I wondered. Then, I realized I had created a facebook profile and not a facebook PAGE. Lightbulb! So...I googled and googled and finally found how to turn my profile into a page.

But then, "Oh, no!", I had BOTH and I didn't know how to control either., google, google; and then I merged the two. Voila! "Finally!" I thought, and then I went back to see what you guys were up to and no one was there. You had all vanished. I couldn't search for you, I couldn't see you, I couldn't like you.

Wah!, google, google. Apparently this is a pretty big bug issue for facebook. There are a ton of pages out there that lose their entire news feed and it really hurts their business. I felt only slightly consoled by the knowledge that I had company in my facebook misery. So long story short (although this has already been pretty long), I had to create a new profile to become a second admin to my page. Then I had to follow all of you, hundreds of you, all over again. But, at least it works, right? (I still can't like or comment as my page from the app on my phone, but that is for another day.) I currently have 2 likes. I know, I know, it is pretty pitiful compared the the tens of thousands of likes some of you have, but I cherish both of those likes deeply. This led me to a thought to help jumpstart my facebook page, a giveaway.

Before I get to that, I want to tell you about the TPT Sale coming up on August 4th and 5th. That's tomorrow, YAY! Everything in my store, as well as many other stores, will be 20% off.  Stop by to check out some of my interactive notebook bundles!

I decided I wanted to host a giveaway to help build up my brand new facebook PAGE (not profile) and help someone get some extra goodies during the sale. The giveaway will be open until Midnight on August 4th, so the winner will have time to spend their gift certificate during the sale.
There will be 2 Winners!

Also, one of you amazing blogger-teachers should write a blog post about how you manage and maintain your blog, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter accounts all while creating new products for your store and spending time with your family. Seriously, I don't know how some of you keep up with it all!
