Social Media Articles

We have a lot of fun with social media, especially Instagram. I’m constantly learning about the latest ways to promote small businesses on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and WordPress blogs. There’s so much info out there it’s hard not to suffer from information overload. So I try to post about useful social media articles and tips that I’ve personally found to be useful.

If you haven’t already — don’t forget to follow the I Love Cowichan blog, and our Instagram & Facebook accounts.

It was a lovely yet rainy start to the day trip to Duncan for our Autumn Jamboree but at @brunchon3rd it was toasty warm. The west coast vegetables and mushroom eggs Benedict were scrumptious and rich in flavor. I loved our first visit. Thanks to @scottygibson for the recommendation for the very European styled restaurant.

Our next stop on the agenda after picking up prizes for the next jamboree was the #cowichancommunitycentre for the big event. We had about 50 guests for 50's and 60's afternoon. I even won one of the door prizes of a cooling scarf. It was all fun and we did 26 dances.

The after party at @york_st_diner was about 10 guests and just as enjoyably delicious. The baked macaroni and cheese was splendid comfort food. We even got to see a stunning sunset and the new lights on the community center hockey stick on the way home.
