How to make your Facebook easy to find

Does your Facebook account have a lot of numbers after your name?

Looks something like this…

Why should you personalize your Facebook URL?

  • Well, one reason would be to enable people to find your group or page easier.
  • Another is setting up a Facebook email address enables you to send out mass emails to your followers.

It’s easy peasy to personalize your Facebook address. 

Whether it’s a personal, business or a group account, the process is the same. All it takes is two steps and you’re done.

  1. Open your Facebook Account or Group and click on “…More.”

2. Arrow down until you see “Web and Email Address.”

As you can see I’ve created one as an example. If yours isn’t customized you’ll see a list of long numbers instead of your name. See illustration above. 

That’s all there is to it. Now you have a special name attached to your URL and a special email address where people can contact you about your group or products.

Have you done this yet? 

Has it helped? 

In case I didn’t explain the process very well, I’ve added another post link below.

Good luck.

How to make writing in first-person easier

Do you struggle with first-person narratives?

I do. Even though it’s my favorite point of view.

I love writing, and reading, first-person point of view stories. But getting it right can be a struggle. I was thrilled to read a recent post on writing techniques from Bookfox

Writing in First Person: 4 Tricks and 6 Pitfalls

The article breaks down the simple do’s and don’ts that make writing in first-person simpler and easier. And reminded me, there are some wonderful, famous authors who wrote in first-person. In addition to thousands of classic works of literature. Selecting first-person POV need not be a hindrance to good writing.

How these writing techniques clicked for me.

  • To find a character’s voice, give them attitude.
  • Do not let the narrator be dull. Don’t want to put your reader to sleep.
  • Showcase your character’s blind spot. We all have them and so should a fictional character.
  • Decide as an author how much your reader can trust your character. Pathological liar or only tells little white lies.
  • Direct the attention on to another character. The narrator has the power to showcase other characters.
  • Make the narrator’s faults interesting.
  • Don’t trap the reader with a one-sided conversation.
  • Give good strong supporting characters for your narrator.
  • Remember writing in first-person is like acting. Leave your personality at home and embrace the fictional character.
  • Avoid filter words. We all know about those.
  • Create sentences that imply the word “I.” It’s easy to overuse the I.
  • Don’t get carried away with monologues and introspection. A little goes a long way.
  • Make obstacles for the narrator, this will encourage you to be more creative.

In addition to several good tips and tricks, the article also explains the different types and techniques for writing in first-person. There is also a cool instructional video.

Okay, now I want to know…
