Want to stay in touch?

If you are following Along Came Quilting on Facebook, you might have noticed that my postings are not ending up in your Newsfeed very often – if at all.  And while the postings might show up in your Pages Feed they are not shown for long (about 7 days is what I can see).  Recently, the number of our Facebook fans viewing our posts has drastically decreased.  This is rather concerning for me, when I know you’d like to keep current.

Since Facebook is moving more and more away from showing you the stuff you subscribed to see, I want to let you know how to ensure you don’t miss out.

Firstly, I will be making most of my postings to Facebook now through this blog.  In the past, I used the blog to post more lengthy material and for things I’d like to ensure stay available for reading.  But most everything will now be posted on the blog, which in turn publishes automatically on Facebook.  Here’s the trick for you:  Subscribe to the blog itself.  You will get the blog post directly in your email and you won’t miss out.  To subscribe, go to the blog, and you will find the Email Subscription box underneath the banner picture.

Secondly, if you don’t want to subscribe to the blog, you can be notified when there is a new Facebook post.  Go to our Facebook page, click the pull-down arrow next to “Liked”, and click on “Get Notifications”.  This will ensure you are notified when a post has been made on our page.  You will need to go to Pages Feed to see the post.

Thirdly, by commenting or liking one of our posts on Facebook, you will be a little more likely to receive it in your Newsfeed.  (But I don’t think this will be a forever thing; the rumour mill is that Facebook will be taking Pages’ posts out of your Newsfeed entirely in time (unless they are paid to put it there by the business).

And finally, I send out Newsletter emails to our customers.  They do not cover the little things like funny videos, great recipes, customer’s quilt pictures and such, but instead are the more “formal” informational side of the business.  To subscribe for the Newsletters, please go to our home page and look for the “Join Our Mailing List” on the right hand side and fill out the boxes.

Ahh technology, there’s always more than one way to stay in touch.  Facebook should take note.

    Yes I want to stay in touch and will open this message on my Microsoft computer. I just thought you should know that the messages on my Apple products (iPad). Have been completely garbled. I look forward to hearing from your shop. Hopefully this can be addressed. I would volunteer to come to Calgary to show you but that would involve some shameless material purchasing!

    • Hi Rita,
      I don’t have a clue why mac products would garble any messages.
      On my iPad I have no problem viewing our company newsletter emails, or viewing the blog. I’ll try subscribing my own personal email account to the blog and view the messages on my iPad and see if I have any issues.
      Are your problems with viewing email messages sent from your blog subscription, Facebook, or emails?

    Hi Linda, I have reapplied to get you posts again because, —- when I get them on my iphone (all my emails come to it just fine) your post/blogs come as unreadable gobbledegook. But when I open them on my laptop, they are fine. I thought that perhaps this would solve the problem. I don’t want to get everything twice, but I would like to get “everything” that you send out. Hope this makes sense to you.

    Thanks. Wayne
