Friends Mitch Meyerson and Mari Smith introduced me to Facebook in 2007. Shortly after I signed up, my health began to deteriorate, compelling me to make some life-changing decisions. I had to reduce my business activity to a minimum until I could get my health back in order.
Fortunately, I won my battle with colon cancer and while it was a long, ugly ordeal, I have risen from the abyss as a reconstructed woman, both physically and spiritually. I won’t digress to that story here but instead, tell you why I’m finally paying and bringing attention to my presence on Facebook.
My entire life, I’ve been all about people connections. Facebook has turned out to be the destination offering the best tools overall to work with in maintaining and relationships online, whether it be for personal or business reasons.
Following are links to Facebook Groups I have joined as well as some I established.
- Ballooning Groups (Hot Air and Gas Ballooning)
- Business Groups (Personal Development, Marketing, Entrepreneurship, Video Production)
Facebook introduced pages for businesses to use in promoting their products and services. The pages are provided free; however, Facebook is aggressive in controlling traffic to them. If you want to see an uncontrolled feed from pages you follow, click here after logging in to Facebook. The best way to keep track of the pages you like is by creating Interest Lists by subjects of interest and bookmark the pages. Then, when you are logged into Facebook you can click on Interest Lists from your home page to get to your pages of interest by subject. Whenever friends suggest pages for you to like, you will find all the requests you have not responded to here. If you want to manage your Facebook business pages, click here for help.
Some of my favorite pages to visit on Facebook are:
- Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta on Facebook
- Sequim Lavender Festival on Facebook
- Art in the High Desert on Facebook
- New Mexico Arts and Crafts Fair on Facebook

November 1, 2019 – Found that the Facebook Friends Lists feature could now be found at https://facebook.com/bookmarks/lists. It’s becoming much more difficult to get timely updates from friends and family members. I have taken advantage of the Custom Lists feature, but also rarely used it as finding lists has often been difficult. If I had placed a friend on a list, I can edit their presence on a list but where to do that is hard to find. I started a new list today and decided I would create links to them here:
- Idaho Friends and Family on Facebook
- BFA Members (Friends who are members of the Balloon Federation of America)
- Corgi Owners – Artists
- Coaches Who Livestream
- Forleo Fans
- VIP RVers
- Central Oregon Artists
- Grants High School Classmates
- BTS Live – BT
- StreamYard Friends
- Udemy Instructors
- Blab Connections
- Sassy 60s
- B-School Friends
- Deceased Friends
- Go Giver Community
- Oregon Art Network
- ABQ MSA
- Corgi Lovers
