Did you know that I posted a new blog post nearly every day in the month of November? Did you also know that I’ve posted six reader’s favorites posts in the month of December?  Haven’t seen all of them?  I’m not surprised.
Why You're Not Receiving My Newest Blog Posts (Facebook) - breething.com


The Facts

It appears to be official, Facebook’s most recent changes means that you will now see less updates from me (and any other pages that you follow) on your Newsfeed.  Why you ask?  Because they want owners of fan pages to pay to promote posts.  Now Facebook is a business and I believe whole-heartedly that they have the right to do with their service as they see fit.  However, want to know how much they’re asking?  

[ Screen shot from 12/13/2013 ]

Since I currently have 52 followers on my Facebook page, the minimum I am being asked to pay is $5 to ensure that all 52 see the content.  And that’s PER POST!  

Consider the fact that it’s not even the middle of the month yet and I’ve posted 6 popular blog posts.  If I chose to boost these to ensure everyone viewed them, I’d have to spend $30.  Ok, not too bad, but I plan to post at least ten more times this month – that brings it to $80 just for this month — to provide information to people who have acknowledged that they want to receive my FREE content.

On top of that, if I promoted all of my blog posts for last month, 40 posts, I would have had to shell out $200!  And that doesn’t include the extraneous posts that I share that include pictures and inspiring quotes.

So obviously I’m a little frustrated.

I believe in complete transparency through this mission I’ve started, so here are my statistics for the last month…

Since November I’ve seen my traffic rates drop drastically.  Yes, I’m still getting decent rates of viewers, but considering I was in the upper 300’s, 400’s and 500’s within the last month, more than 200 views at the first of the month (coinciding with the changes of Facebook) is a little disheartening.

And for a bit more transparency, here is the total reach of the number of people who have seen my shared content on Facebook over the last month.  DISLIKE!

The Reaction

I want to inspire people to become better versions of themselves through reading the content that I share and how do I reach the people that are down on their luck, feeling as though they are not worthy of God’s love or that of another earthly being?  Through free content.

So I will NOT pay Facebook to share my content with my supporters-followers-friends-family.  But I still want to you to be able to freely access the content that I am sharing numerous times throughout the week. So how can we make this happen?

The Solution

I need you to help me help you and select one of the two options below.  Props go to those who do both!
