  • Some Facebook Tips | Milomade
    facebook com twitter you can do the same Another thing you can do is connect your blog to Facebook via the RSS feed and this means that each time you write a blog post it will appear on your Facebook wall Both these solutions mean that you have less work to do to get your information out there Initially I was writing a blog post then posting a link to this on Twitter and then visiting my Facebook page and doing the same there Now all I need to do is write the blog post and the other two actions are automated To connect my blog to Facebook I use RSS Graffiti Utilise FBML to create a Welcome Tab FBML is another great application you should install It enables you to create a personalised tab and direct people to this when they visit your page rather than taking them to your Wall If you visit my Milomade page you ll be taken to my Welcome tab As you can see I ve created a tab and styled it with my own content and this is all possible via FBML Facebook s own version of HTML I guess There s a great tutorial here this is what I followed to get started with this application It will help to know some basic HTML in order to add the content but you can get loads of info online on how to do this or simply send me a message on Facebook explaining what you want to do and I d be happy to help you out Personalise Your Facebook URL This has been a tricky thing for me to sort out as I initially tried using the Memorable URL application and failed miserably I thought if I named my personal profile as Milomade that this meant I could leave comments on people s pages as Milomade I was wrong as this just relates to the URL of the profile or page So this meant that I couldn t use the same name for my Milomade page I uninstalled the application and reinstalled it tried to delete change the name and nothing I did worked Today I decided to search through the Help files on Facebook to find a better way of dealing with this and found this bit of info about your Facebook username and was able to set my personal profile username and my page username very easily without having to install an application Spread a little or a lot of Facebook Love One way of growing your fan base of Facebook is by spreading a little Link Love If you set up a discussion on your discussion tab and call it Link Love they will come Post all your links there and invite others to do the same Basically me and my fans can go through the Link Love discussion and check out the different fan pages listed If you become a fan of a page check if they have a Link Love discussion going and if they do leave your links and then post a comment on the page wall to say you are now a fan This gives your page a lot of exposure and connects you with other users on Facebook The more you spread the link love the more fans you ll get I ve managed to accumulate over 600 in only 4 months So start spreading the link love You can start from my fan page if you like Create a Facbook Badge for your site or blog Another way to spread the word about your Facebook page and to grow a bigger fan base is to use Facebook Badges on your site blog shop etc Visit this page and select which kind of badge you d like to use make it then copy the code and paste this into your blog or your own website or shop I ve got a badge on this blog in the sidebar on the right on my website here as well as in my Zibbet shop You used to be able to choose to show random pictures of all your fans but I think Facebook has recently changed it s rules about this and the new badges don t allow you to do this If you want a badge that incorporates images of your fans then get in touch and I can probably give you the code that I use and you d just have to change which page it links to Do Promotions and Giveaways One way of increasing your fan base is to run promotions and giveaways on your Facebook page I ve done a few of these since April My first 100 fan names got bunged into a hat and one lucky winner got a off coupon for my shop I ve also given out packs of badges as well as a whole bundle of stationery when I reached 500 fans It s a fun way to interact with the people who follow your page and a great way to keep them interested It s also a great way to get your products out there and be seen and this can increase interest for your website shop blog but also increase your sales Ok so you re giving something away for free so be selective with your prizes so you re not out of pocket as it s definitely worth it plus it s lots of fun Create Events Let your fans know what you re up to and advertise the fact that you ll be at an up and coming craft fair or sale by creating an Event on your Facebook page By doing so an Events tab gets added to your wall and all the events you want to advertise get listed here for all your fans to see not only does this give publicity to the event on Facebook it will also allow people to spread the word about it easily too

  • Working with Copper & Buttons | Milomade
    it the same as silver but the results weren t great The oxidisation came off in flakes which was odd as that doesn t happen with silver So I mucked about with these first few pieces and sanded them back and re oxidised or re heated them to see what happened I was just playing about I don t think I ll ever use them unless I sand them right back and start again But in all seriousness I wanted to find out how to oxidise copper properly without the flakiness so I asked Dot for her help In her studio up in Newport on Tay we did a few experiments and found that the less time the copper had in the liquid the better the oxidisation It also worked better if the metal was very clean and hot so it got a proper sanding down and polish before getting bathed in boiling water then a quick dunk into the liver of sulphur solution and out again and straight into cold water to stop the process quickly It s amazing to watch the copper turn black it happens so quickly and kind of spreads across the surface of the metal as if it s being painted on by an invisible artist So I ve been making lots of rectangular blanks and imprinting them with patterns I ran a few of them through the mill and used leaves and lace and I think I prefer the leaf pattern most it ties in with my silver leaf pendants and also with the flower buttons I intend to use for these pieces I also got a bit of a refresher lesson in riveting from Dot as well as I want to attach buttons to my copper blanks same up with a great way of simplifying my original idea it s always good to consult with an expert when trying to figure out the best way to approach a problem My idea was to rivet the buttons to the copper using two separate pieces of silver this is incredibly fiddly and has resulted in many a button breakage I first tried it using two pieces of balled silver wire and although I liked the result the process was far too annoying to repeat So instead Dot suggested making a small staple from silver wire and riveting the button to the copper with this not only would it hold the button in place properly during the process it would also mean I could do all the riveting at once Our first attempts weren t great as the staple always veered off to one side rather than staying straight but this gave me enough experience to go home and try it out for myself and experiment with the technique So this morning I took one of my textured blanks one with a leaf pattern and fully sanded polished and cleaned it I d already soldered on a loop for a chain or leather thong previously so
