I spend an incredible amount of time on Facebook; not for the usual reasons (whatever those are). Because of my writing, promoting (myself and others), and various other job related activities, Facebook plays a big role in how I run my business.
Which also means I’m there for the fun stuff too. Meet Hometalk – the know it all in one spot. I don’t know when it started but long about whenever ago, I started seeing posts in my feed for a place called Hometalk.com.

They intrigued me because of the simplicity of the posts. A picture showing some fabulous make-over of some (often) hideous thing, or some repurposed thing, or some inexpensive thing into some AMAZING, useful, AWEsome thing.

I can’t tell you how many of these Hometalk posts I’ve clicked on, many of them in the evenings as we lounge in bed, watching the idiot box (I’m not a big TV watcher depending…and tend to “multi-task”), enjoying plenty of how-to’s – big and small, as well as lots of tips and tricks for organization, and creative craft projects that I would probably never attempt on my own.
I am in awe of those who do.
I happen to know some of “those” and we’ll get to them in later posts.
Until recently, I did nothing with Hometalk.com but click from my phone. I like seeing the transformations and enjoy all the tips, etc. But not being crazy craftily inclined, I just didn’t see the point in exploring it too much further.
And then something made me go there proper. From the box on my desk to Hometalk. I was compelled by a need to discover just what it was they had to offer besides what they share on Facebook.
Oh Em GEE.
