Did you know that Lovesail is on Instagram (lovesaildating)? I know, I know, how many more social media accounts do we need to have these days? If you haven’t ventured onto Instagram yet then do, it really is one of the better ones.
We do have a Facebook Account (Love Sail Social Network And Online Dating) and a Twitter Account (@lovesail). As a business owner we have to engage with these two if we want to climb up the search engines and be noticed, however, many of us would rather be getting on with the day to day running of the business. It is frustrating that as a business we have to engage in order to survive (more social engagement, more Google points, more steps up the search engine ladder).
There are many articles about the destructive side of social media. I’m currently looking at ways in which to decrease the number of posts on some social media channels and increase other ways of engaging people, ideally whilst supporting small businesses at the same time. When I do use social media my aim is to make engagements positive, supportive, educational and/or uplifting.
Instagram is one social media channel I do like and will continue to use. Why? Well it’s quick, easy and just flicking through the many wonderful images can’t fail to lighten your day. And as the Chinese expression says “Hearing something a hundred times isn’t better than seeing it once”.
Here are just a few of the photos we have posted on Instagram, and all of them have been taken with a mobile phone!

A New Year’s Competition
So the snow never arrived and with temperatures of 12 degrees C today, I guess that’s it for the chance of snow for another year. It did make for a very lovely walk through the water meadows though with Milo, so I’m not complaining, and what better way to start the year then with a competition.
This months competition to win a years gold membership to the site is very easy. All you need to do is “like” our Facebook page during January and your name will be put into a hat and a winner drawn on 31st January 2012. The winner will be announced on the Lovesail News Blog. Here for a link to the facebook page otherwise copy and paste this link into your browser www.facebook.com/lovesail Good Luck.
Last months winner of the Photo Competition and a years gold membership was Caribejohn with his picture of Lucy the dog. See here to see the winning shot, a very deserved win I’m sure you will agree.
Congratulations also go to Scubad1ver who entered the competition and won the months gold membership.
Any members visiting the London Boat Show this week, I am in and out throughout the week so if you would like to meet up for a yarn/drink then please do send me a message (Lovesail Erica) or email me through the contact form. It is always exciting to meet the members.
Wishing you all, but more especially my 16 year old, a happy Winter-een-mas.
