I would rather be walking my dog than be in front of a computer.
Or reading a book.
Or chatting with friends.
Or numerous other things.
Which means, I never got into Facebook.
Repeatedly, I was told I needed a Facebook business page. And for the longest time, I ‘intended’ to create one.
It never happened.
This summer, I committed to learning Facebook well enough to create a business page.
That wasn’t smart. Actually, it was a set-up for failure. Our summers are short and I wanted to be outside, if I had any spare time.
Now, the air is crisper and we are into autumn. While it is still a great time to go for a long dog walk, I dug up some discipline and we have Facebook business page that was published yesterday.
Just after that, to create a habit of posting on Facebook, I signed up for a daily blog challenge that begins today and runs for 10 days.
At minimum, for the next 10 days, I will share an informational post every day to prove I did my blog challenge homework. Not sure what the assignments will be but was assured we will be able to tailor the assignment to our interest.
My interest is learning to balance ourselves as sensory beings, with a focus on helping those who have sensory issues that restrict or have an unwanted impact on their lives.
As a thank you to those of you who check out our new page and support us, we are having a contest!.
I can't give you the details yet (that's not a marketing ploy. Since this was decided after signing up for the blog challenge, I need to do a bit of research first to keep it legal) but from what I’ve read, Facebook likes, shares, comments, as well as sign ups to my newsletter are all point-worthy actions.
Please check out InnovAID’s Facebook page, like it, leave a comment, share it with others, and if you think your friends would also like reading Take AIM, invite them to sign up (if you do all that, that’s got to be a bazillion points in the Facebook contest world!).
We will start tracking immediately and will be posting shortly, once the assignment has been given.
Without change there is no innovation, creativity, or incentive for improvement. Those who initiate change will have a better opportunity to manage the change that is inevitable.

I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it not for that handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy. Let's face it, friends make life a lot more fun.
~Charles R. Swindoll (to those that check out our page, you are making my journey into Facebook more fun)
It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson (that's my way of saying, expect there to be mistakes on our Facebook page. Please laugh at them, and let us know about them. Thanks.)
4. Encourage others to sign-up
Cheers! Here's to taking on challenges and asking for help along the way!
P.S. If you have a sensory concern, question or comment, please share it.
I’ll be scrambling for topics for the next 10 days. I’ve got a list of ideas but I’m not sure how my list will match the assignments. Would love to have you come over to Facebook and share your ideas.
