I've always been straight but with you about the ebbs and flows of stepfamily life. I'm an open book. I don't see the point in being anything but.
Today I thought I'd be straight up about something that's going on with my blog and Facebook page. Honestly, I've been losing sleep over this!
In case you haven't heard, Mark Zuckerberg has made some changes about what makes it's way into your newsfeed- to sum it up, the changes have resulted in my blog posts becoming less likely to show up in your Facebook Newsfeed... and if you don't know I've posted, then you're not going to get the support!
This week I had a few stepmoms reach out to me wondering what the heck is going on... The answer? Sometimes changes in life are outside of our control and we just have to pivot and figure out how to move forward! Which is what I'm doing!!!
So, if you want to stay up-to-date on new posts, I've figured out a way for us to get around this new algorithm.
1. TURN ON POST NOTIFICATIONS
Facebook gives you the option to sign up for notifications and to have content show up first in your Newsfeed. I'd love it if you did this for my page.
(Don't worry, signing up for this will NOT blow up your notifications. I post once a day MAX, not even that!)
CLICK HERE to turn on post notifications!
2. Be sure to Like & Comment
Your newsfeed will show you content that you WANT TO SEE! The peeps over at Facebook measure this by your engagement with posts.
So whether it be on Facebook OR Instagram, be sure to like the posts that you want to show up in your newsfeed! Comments and shares also help (like REALLY really help... and are REALLY really appreciated!)
3. My Posting Schedule
In case Facebook doesn't pull through, here's the low down on my posting schedule.
- A new post goes live on my blog every Monday morning! (Sometimes, on Thursdays too!)
- My VLOGS are posted randomly on YouTube >> if you subscribe HERE you'll get notifications when a new post goes live!
- On Wednesday Mornings @10:00am EST, I go LIVE on Facebook and chat about all things parenting, step-parenting and blended family life. (Be sure to say hi if you tune in!)
(This week I have a Sexologist joining me!! ... it's going to be a JUICY one!)
You can also find me, and a KICK-ASS Community of Stepmoms providing support in my Facebook Group - The KICK-ASS Stepmom Community
Lastly I just want to say THANK-YOU for all of your support. Every read, every like, every comment and every share means more to me than I'll ever be able to describe to you!
I am seriously so grateful for all of you!
If you haven't already, be sure. to follow along on Instagram! I'm having a BLAST connecting with you via instagram stories!
