I say all the important stuff on Facebook . . .

facebooktwitter-0035 I was on Cathy Zielske's blog and she had the greatest idea on how to use your Facebook or Twitter posts.

If you feel like you are the only person who doesn't have a Facebook account it is because you are. Seriously, it is time, sign up, it won't hurt.

Once you have your account you will find yourself breaking your whole life down to little "posts" or "tweets". These are basically little journal entries about what you are doing every day and they make a great album. I pulled my favorite posts to create a "Facebook Fav's" album.  Now, I just drop my favorite posts and the picture into the album and at the end of the year I am going to have it printed into a 6x6 book, or maybe a tear off calendar - then when it's January 15, 2010 I can look back and see what I was doing on that day last year!

To create the album I started with a blank page, added a square shape, made it black, added another square on top of that, made it white.  Finally I added the title and year.  I didn't want to have to remake the page for each entry so I right clicked next to the thumbnail of the page at the bottom of the page and chose "duplicate page".  Now I can just go in and add photos, text etc - super easy!  Thanks Cathy!
