New – #WakeRobinRidge Memes #wwwblogs

Took some time away from Irma Issues to make a few basic, but long overdue, memes for my books. Thought maybe I’d share them here, in case any of you wanted to pass them along. My next batch are going to be artsier, but this is a start.

 Also wondering how many of you use images like these when you tweet, or post on FB? I know Mae Clair does, because she created some truly beautiful graphics for her Point Pleasant series. How about the rest of you? Just curious.

    • Thanks, Staci! I’ve heard that Tweets with images are always more effective, and I’ve used visuals for my tweets before, though I’ve fallen down on all marketing lately. (I have an excuse. Her name was Irma.) 😀 I’m trying to find time each week to do some marketing-related tasks now, and also getting back to scheduling tweets via Hootsuite to boost visibility again. These may not be the most beautiful images, but they do a couple of things: display my covers, include quotes and blurb material, and include availability & price. I’ll add artier ones soon, and build up enough that I’m not always using the same ones. That’s the plan, anyway. 🙂

    • Mary, if you want to save/use any graphic from a blog (assuming it’s okay to do so), you can always right click on the image and save it to your computer (to your desktop, or a folder for images, etc). Once you have it on your computer, you can then attach it to (or insert it in) any email or blog post you like. Or you can insert it in a tweet or on your Facebook page. Pretty much anywhere on social media. Just like you’d insert a picture of your own, or your own book cover, etc.

      Another thing you can do is reblog the entire post on your own blog, to share that way. Or, highlight & copy the url at the top of the post page, and share that on Facebook. There are a lot of ways to pass along images and/or full posts.

      If you need more help, feel free to email me. 🙂 The best thing about social media is that it lets us share with each other, whether it’s our own posts and images, or someone else’s. We can’t have you not knowing how to do that when you want. (I also responded to your comment on the Review Meme Deb shared on Facebook.) 😀 Take heart. We will show you how! 🙂

      • Thanks, Marcia. I should have remembered how to copy and save a graphic – I have done it before. It was really the business of how to make a meme but I see you have emailed me – thank you so much.

  1. I think you did a great job with your memes, Marcia.

    Thank you, too, for the shout-out. I’ve been on vacation in your state (Cape Coral, Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel Island and Captiva) and am only now starting to get back in my regular routine.

    I’m all about using graphic teasers and memes especially Twitter. They make tweets far more interesting to post and also to read!

    • Thanks, Mae! At least I got some info on these, but I want to do some artier ones, like yours. SOON.

      Hope you enjoyed your Florida vacation. This past week was the very first cool weather we’ve had here in the Orlando area. Nights in the low 50’s and days in the low 70’s. I LOVE that kind of weather. Wouldn’t hurt my feelings if it never got one degree above 70. Ever. 😀

      My parents lived on Sanibel Island for years, and I’ve spent many, many a day birding around that island. It’s changed a lot since those days (when my 46-year-old son was 3!) But hopefully, it was still a fun time for you. I’ve bicycled every inch of Ding Darling Sanctuary dozens and dozens of times. Saw my first roseate spoonbills there. (In the wild.) Long time ago, but I have very fond memories of Sanibel.

      Glad you are home safe and sound! You’ve been missed. 😀 ❤

      • I loved the bike paths and nature trails on Sanibel. Oh, to live there, LOL!

        We had one day of cooler weather in the morning, but it warmed up by the afternoon.

        The trip was great and now I’m geared up return to writing, blogging and promotion. You know….the life of a writer 🙂

        I can’t wait to see what else you do with book memes!

        • When I remember Sanibel, I think of endless bike rides, especially through the sanctuary areas. And alligators. LOTS of alligators, in every puddle of fresh or brackish water available to them. And even on the beach, now and then! But most of all birds. Great flocks of wading birds, and eagles, and ospreys, and so many more. Plus I spotted the longest indigo snake I’ve ever seen in my life there. At least 8′ if not more. He was stunning! *sigh* A nature lover’s paradise.

          So glad you had a good time, and are home, relaxed and ready to get on with the life you know you love the most! 😀 Going to post my Riverbend memes today, and when I get a few fancier ones done, I’ll share them, too.

    • In life, I’ve discovered there are two things that are always in short supply: Time and Money. When something doesn’t happen, it’s almost always due to not enough of one or the other, right? 😀 I’d put these off far too long. I have quite a few earlier ones I made, but they don’t have as much info on them, and need tweaking, I think. But for now, these ought to be helpful. Fingers crossed. Glad you liked them. Thanks! 😀

    • Thanks, Deb. No, I use Paint Shop Pro (a less expensive version of Photoshop) because I painted for years, and eventually started doing digital painting with an electronic Wacom tablet and pen. So I have a pretty good graphics program that lets me work in layers and has lots of filters and goodies. But you could do something similar in Canva, I’m sure. I’ll have to share some of my art someday. But I’m really glad you like these. I just made a new one, a bit more artsy, I’ll share tomorrow, maybe. 😀 Hopefully, they’ll inspire lots of you guys to do some similar things. I was thoroughly inspired by Mae Clair, so why not pass it along? 😉
