Greetings! As you know if you follow this blog, Facebook banned my Amelia Smarts profile permanently. But, I’m back. You’ll notice that I’m wearing new clothes, but hopefully you’ll still recognize me. Let’s be friends if we aren’t already.
I’m not sure who, but some brilliant person had the idea for one of my friends to start a Friends of Amelia Smarts page. Why is this brilliant? Because it can’t be annihilated like what happened to my last page as a result of being connected to my Amelia Smarts profile that was banned. Now that I’m back on Facebook (wearing new clothes), my friend made me an admin of this new page. I can add pictures, share book releases, and generally control everything that happens on it. However, if for some reason Facebook decides it doesn’t like me and my new clothes and bans my new profile, the page will still exist because I don’t technically own it.
Smart, right? I thought so!
I’m still kind of pissed that I can’t have an Amelia Smarts profile on Facebook, but I do like my new name. Anyone who speaks Spanish will appreciate the sound of it. Say it out loud and it sounds like “mi amor,” which is Spanish for “my love.” That is what my husband calls me, and that makes it an authentic name in my opinion. 😉
Anyway, thank you all for actually caring that I got banned. I don’t know if my being on Facebook really helps with marketing my books, but I do know that since I joined this community a year or so ago, I feel like I’m home. I know that might sound weird to many, but the way I see it–I finally connected with people who love to read, write, and spank! It’s just awesome, really, and I’m thrilled to be back. As a token of my appreciation, I’ll leave you with this spanking picture, which offended Facebook’s sensibilities. Enjoy.
