I think my next job will be to try an create a FB page.  We used to have one, but it has long gone.

I'd like to keep it simple to start - not much more than few pictures to capture the interests of current members, a few words to go with them, and a link to here to serve as a signpost.  

So - A rummage around and I have found some candidates:

Dandelions's chickens:

Ploshkin's sheep:

There are some piglets too if I can find them.

Quite a few pretty garden shots, but not so many of the edible garden.  I can probably find the odd photo of some woodworking I think.

Any more or better offers ?  I cute is good !

I've sent you a PM with a couple of veggie photos, Chilli Head. I know I made him (crochet), but I like this one for cute ....

So do we just post the pictures on here for you to copy? I can probably find a few vegetable pics...

I've just gathered some photos on here.  Lacking in words as yet...

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Initially I thought to make a group, but having decided to stick with the forum, I thought it was better to just make a page, try and preload it with some pictures to make it photogenic, and then copy occasional interesting or pretty posts from the foum onto there as a taster.

I have to confess I have little idea how to drive Facebook, so any comments from the more experienced users would be useful. Nudges Dandelion ...

I must admit that I'm learning as I go. I run the FB page for our local food bank - it's run more to inform users of the food bank and donors about particular needs (such as a shortage of a particular item) and any events which are running, but I also try to include recipes and any relevant news items. As it's a local organisation I think most of our 'likes' come from people who use or who support the food bank, but I'm pretty chuffed today to see a 'like' from BBC Hereford and Worcester!
I think the way to get started is just to set the page up, and get it going - FB does post helpful comments as you get going, about boosting your audience and adding embellishments.

That's a kind offer BJM.  What I need at the moment is for more people to see it ...  I see we have a little group of "likes" from Australia - thanks for the like of my (or should that be DW's) bangle too !

If any of our other members are on Facebook and want to help promote HML by liking or inviting friends to like the HML page, that would be much appreciated Very Happy

Well I can definitely help with that, I am a member of many gardening and "homemade" type groups on FB, and one of my friends has a Youtube channel on vermicomposting and fish farming (can't remember what that's called) and has quite a good following. Will see what I can do.

Well something looks to have worked - over a hundred likes today. Let's hope a few of them might have a look at the forum too.

I've put a little "Like box" down there on the left hand column, you can go to Facebook for a look at the page, or like it directly from there if you want.
