More social media angst. Are you sick of me and this topic yet? Thanks for everyone who chimed in about my other blog. And my issue about Stats, time crunch, and whether or not to combine my blogs yadayadayada.
Truthfully, I love that other blog. It's a quiet oasis where I can just post about what's on my mind and what's going on in my life-- writing from life-- that's what it is, and it gives me yet another outlet for writing for fun, not profit. So I'm keeping it.
But something has to give, and it's Facebook. I've never felt real comfortable there. It's too much a mish mash of everything and everybody and half the time I feel exposed and like my privacy is being invaded. Weird, huh? I apologize to all those who have friended me and who I've enjoyed talking to over there. But it just wasn't a good fit for me, so I deactivated my account.
And on that topic, another quote from my funny son, who is now at Marine Boot Camp and I bet he's not laughing now LOL. When I asked him awhile back why he didn't friend me on Facebook, he said, "Mom, I live in the same house with you."
So here I am, still in love with blogging, and I'm over there at From the Shadows to the Page. And I'm on twitter @KarenGowen. And of course Goodreads. Plus my email is on the sidebar.
Goodbye Facebook. Something had to give, and it was you. For me, you were an experiment that never really worked.
