Share Your Work Freely

I pounded sand looking for a hole to drive deep enough to care about.  Then, I stopped.

I searched the web for a place to drop links.  Turns out there isn’t a place to do so.  It seems to me people create online communities with rules that often include an agenda, which only help the person who created the community.  Fuck that.  I even searched on Facebook for a place to drop my links from WordPress.  Nope.  Not gonna happen. Well it can- sorta. For example, I spammed Donald Trumps facebook page with my link to my short story on amazon.  His team let is stay.  But for the majority, you can’t just stumble upon a facebook page and drop your link hoping for feedback, views, or..well anything.

I started a group on facebook today.  It’s purpose is to allow creative works to be shown and supported.  Drop a link whenever you want.  I don’t care if it’s a link directly to your sales page on amazon.  Do it. I dare you.  I double dog dare you. I hope you gain sales.

For this group to work it needs to grow.  If you’re into this kind of thing drop by and say howdy.  Drop your link and let’s see what comes.

As I often say to many of my closest friends, ooga.  More likely it would be, Ooga! That’s my version of cheers and sometimes possibly a head butt.

Here’s the link to the group on Facebook.  Drop a link!

    • I feel badly posting my link on someone’s blog (unless they ask as you’ve done). fyi- My facebook page is private, but the group page is public. I don’t blame you for disliking facebook. It does however open up other marketing avenues.

  1. What a fabulous idea, Matt! Thank you for doing this!
    I am big-time bummed – because I won’t be able to
    “officially” join, as I keep my FB page and my blog
    totally separate. Not for any nefarious reasons, ok?
    Sorry to disappoint! 🙂
    There may be a way to do it – I’ll check further.

    I love the group’s name and the energy behind the
    idea. I’ll definitely support it in any way that I can.
    I want to be involved.
