To Facebook or Not To Facebook...

I am seriously considering getting back on Facebook.

Yes, I said it.

I have been off for ten months.  Have I missed anything in that time?  Well, I have missed keeping up with some friends that don't live near me, or that I don't see regularly.  That is definitely a loss.

I have also missed out on political one-liners that get on my nerves, seeing parties or outings that I didn't know about, and being irritated with people who put on a fake face for the world to see.  That is definitely a gain.

I have gained the time I used to spend looking at Facebook on my phone.  If something really exciting happens Nevin or Tony (who are on Facebook) will tell me, anyway.

I thought I would do better at sending emails (maybe even real cards) to those friends I kept in touch with on  FB, but it hasn't happened so far.

What to do, what to do.....


  1. If you're dwelling on it, it will be really hard to ignore. I have a few "spys" that let me know what's happening on there. I do feel cut off from the world at times, but I know positively that I have some very positive, uplifting, and inspirational for-real conversations in the time that I would have used to look at facebook. Keepin' it real - that's what I strive to do. Good luck fighting through your choice to be or not to be.

  2. Oh, please, please, please! I would LOVE for you to come back! Sometimes it's easier to keep up with the day to day happenings through fb. If you're worried about getting too involved again, limit your friends. Or do what another friend of mine did. She uses a "pen" name.



I love-love-love comments! If anything I've said touches you or makes you think in any way, please let me know. I check for comments frequently through the day.
