Over the weekend I met up with some of my girlfriends, one of which has given up Facebook for lent (gooo Nicki!!). I've been inspired by her ditching FB and thinking about cutting back myself. A lot of it stems from just plain missing blogging... missing the community and missing out on documenting little things about my life- thoughts, feelings, etc. I feel like I tend to jot down blips on FB and while lots of people feel like that is "documentation enough" (Is it, really? I mean, what if someday FB becomes obsolete... will your statuses from 10 years ago still be there?), I have noticed in the past few months my lack of blogging has been affected by my increased use of FB.
Remember last fall when I posted this shout out to bloggers to revive some blog connections? Well I failed miserably at doing that. I am going to try so hard to be a better commenter... and a better blogger of the little moments. I don't know that I can completely cut out FB, but I do think I'm going to attempt to share less on there and more on my blog. If someone really cares to know about my life they can come here and read, right?
So, here goes nothing! Let's see how the slow bandaid rip from Facebook goes. GAH!
Question for my readers: Have you tried quitting Facebook? Was it cold turkey or a slow pullback? How long did it last? Or... did you quit completely?
