Storystacking on ATS LIVE this evening. Winners, Guests, Chuckles, Oh my!

First things first, I need your help! I’m having a hard time getting my Facebook friends to take me seriously and it’s putting their very social media lives on the line. I don’t know what to do about it. I thought I’d mention this to y’all here on the blogosphere and see if y’all have any suggestions. It started when I noticed that many, many, many people were posting status updates that read like this:

FACEBOOK JUST RELEASED THEIR PRICE GRID FOR MEMBERSHIP. $9.99 PER MONTH FOR GOLD MEMBER SERVICES, $6.99 PER MONTH FOR SILVER MEMBER SERVICES, $3.99 PER MONTH FOR BRONZE MEMBER SERVICES, FREE IF YOU COPY AND PASTE THIS MESSAGE BEFORE MIDNIGHT TONIGHT. WHEN YOU SIGN ON TOMORROW MORNING YOU WILL BE PROMPTED FOR PAYMENT INFO…IT IS OFFICIAL IT WAS EVEN ON THE NEWS. FACEBOOK WILL START CHARGING DUE TO THE NEW PROFILE CHANGES. IF YOU COPY THIS ON YOUR WALL YOUR ICON WILL TURN BLUE AND FACEBOOK WILL BE FREE FOR YOU. PLEASE PASS THIS MESSAGE ON IF NOT YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE DELETED IF YOU DO NOT PAY!

Shellie again, perhaps y’all have seen that message on your own wall? Well, it prompted me to make my own announcement last night. Here’s my status update:

IT’S OFFICIAL. IF YOU DON’T BUY TWELVE COPIES OF SUE ELLEN’S GIRL AIN’T FAT, SHE JUST WEIGHS HEAVY BEFORE MIDNIGHT FACEBOOK WILL REVOKE YOUR ACCOUNT. PLEASE REPOST. (What?!!? I checked it with Snoopy, I mean snoopes…)

So, here’s the problem, y’all. I can’t get anyone to take me seriously! Oh, I’ve had about fifty comments and just as many “likes” but it’s as if they don’t see the danger staring them in the face. I can’t bear to see all of ’em lose their Facebook accounts while they are sitting there giggling. Sigh… If y’all have any suggestions, let me know, k? 

In other news, I’m looking forward to ATS LIVE this evening. Not only do I have a story for y’all, (of course) and a recipe, and some News You Can Lose, but I’ll have a special guest who is sure to make you smile. Deborah M. Cody, author of Too Blessed to Be Stressed will drop by with her unique wit.

Oh, and someone’s going to win big! I have two cool give-a-ways today. First, the latest thriller from Don Brown,  Thunder in the Morning Calm.

And– wait for it. I also have a copy of Karen Kingsbury’s Forever Faithful The Compete Trilogy! If you’re a Kingsbury fan, today is your day! You’ll have to tune in to find out how to win. 🙂

ATS LIVE airs out of Monroe, LA on TALK 540 KMBL and streams live in real time on my website. The porch party rocks from 5:00 to 6:00 CST. 

I’ll see y’all on the radio!

Hugs,
Shellie 

Now, what should we do about this impending Facebook crisis, hmmm???
