Earthbag Building Facebook Page

I got the following email a few minutes ago. Luke just won himself a free copy of my upcoming Earthbag Building Video. Thanks, Luke!

“With great pleasure, I just wanted to let you know a Facebook page has been created for fans of your blog. The name of the page is, “Earthbag Building Blog Fan Page.” It took a few days, and 25 people to ‘like’ it before we could get an official link, but now we’ve got it, which is; facebook.com/earthbagbuilding. The Facebook page will follow your blog and other activity by your other websites, as well as questions and answers can be supported by the Facebook community. I hope that it will also serve another function, when it gains more attention, to make announcements about local or abroad earthbag building workshops.

It’s an honor to be able to do this.”

  1. Jason, I hope it will too, that’s a great possible benefit. However, there is an existing Earthbag Builders group on facebook already. It has 268 members, and there’s a decent amount of interaction there. My goal wasn’t to start a new one of those, or to ever take away from it, but rather, bring attention to the blog here. If more interaction happens, that’s awesome too. And as Owen constantly brings attention to other blogs, I think I’ll be doing a “Featured Friday” that will feature a different earthbag-involved blog in addition to w/e Owen posts on a Friday.
    And, yes I’ll be keeping up with this blog every day, but the goal is also to bring more traffic to the blog via facebook, not more traffic to the facebook page by it’s own volition. So, I doubt that this would happen, but I don’t intend to distract from the blog, but rather, put up a big flashing, stinking neon sign that says, “Come look how great this blog is!”
    And of course, it’s my honor to be doing this work. Plus it’s fun!

  2. I really appreciate you doing this Luke. Saves me checking constantly for updates. Hopefully it will allow for easier interaction amongst earthbaggers too.

  3. Robin, that is really great to know. I’ll keep it in mind for sure. I think people appreciate a person rather than a computer…that is until the person starts falling behind! Haha.
    Thanks again, Robin.

  4. Owen, no, I just have to watch your blog and make a few comments on each post. I don’t think there’s a way to make it automatically populate on the facebook page. That would be convenient, but there wouldn’t be a personal touch.
    It’s a bit of work, but I enjoy it, and I watch your blog pretty much daily anyway.

      • Haha. Go for it, and we’ll see what happens. As long as they’re not posts about twiddling thumbs and checking the time. I’ll probably stick with a morning/night shift b/c you’re 11 hours ahead. :)
