This Wednesday will mark my fourth (4th) week without Facebook. I must say it hasn’t been all that hard, but I somewhat miss it. I know some of you are reading this on my Facebook page thinking, Surely she’s on here! Why else can I see this entry? Well, my dear friends, let me try to explain (as I did on Ash Wednesday). My Facebook page and this blog are connected as are this blog and my linkedin.com page.
I realized that lots of people were doubtful that I really hadn’t been off Facebook that whole time because Steven gets on (on occasion and with my permission) to view pages, profiles, etc. that are special to Facebook members and since he doesn’t want to create his own account (don’t ask me why I could spend forever talking about it…just know that he doesn’t want his own account) I told him, he can use my account for those times. Also no one seemed to believe me because of all the posts that keep popping up with my name attached to them. I can reassure you that only this and linkedin.com are the only two accounts that are connected. Anything else is probably spam. I say probably because I realize that I did send out a bunch of e-cards on Facebook to friends, family, etc. before Lent began and did this to schedule them to be sent out without me being on there. Sort of cheating one might say, but if you realize that I did this weeks ahead of time then I wouldn’t call it cheating.
Anyway, so I’ve been able to get a lot of things done now that I haven’t been on Facebook. I’m quite happy with how things turned out! I’m thinking I’ll probably keep this up after Lent, but not to worry. I will sign on to Facebook, but just not as often. It seemed (or seems) that Facebook gets in the way of trying to get everyday tasks done. I have come to this realization while I’ve been away and noticed that I am able to accomplish more now that I’m not on Facebook. Wow! Amazing isn’t it?
Well, that’s all I have for today. Sorry I haven’t been writing as much, but things became busy around here and I have been so preoccupied with other tasks at hand (most of which I refuse to go into online and most of which that unless you are REALLY close to me in real life you may not ever find out either; no offense to either party that you might associate yourself with).
