No need to stress over having “nothing to post” on Facebook! Here are 10 suggestions you can customize to your interests and activities.
- Short quotes from your book(s). Use Canva to make easy and beautiful graphics. Include a link to osvcatholicbookstore.com or amazon.com.
- Share a favorite Scripture passage and mention why it means so much to you. Ask your fans to share theirs, too.
- Share a short prayer, or mention a prayer request, or invite your fans to share prayer intentions.
- Share a saint from a favorite site. Or link to an article you’ve read, or a book you’re reading, or a favorite blog post, or a funny meme.
- Mention books you’re reading — from Catholic authors, or even your favorite fiction or nonfiction. Ask your fans for new reading suggestions.
- Post a “view from your desk today” picture — out your window, or just of your messy work area. This is extra fun if you’re traveling. Ask your fans where they’re working today.
- Try a weekly “heard at Mass” post — something from the liturgy or homily that touched you or has you thinking. Ask your fans to share their “heard at Mass” experiences.
- Are you traveling for work or pleasure? It’s a great time to share pictures of a church you’ve visited, a coffee shop you’re working in, or a shrine where you’ve spent time.
- Are you giving a talk, presenting at a conference, having a book signing, giving a webcast? Be sure to let your fans know!
All the Facebook things: Have you seen a good movie, met an interesting person, had a writing disaster or success, done something stupid, discovered something brilliant, had a prayer answered, experienced the presence of God? Share it! Ask your fans to share their stories, too.
