Oops, I did it again

I forgot to write a post last night, and thus it is 6:45, and I am kind of scrambling to write a post on the topic "discuss ways that blogging or social media have changed you".

I'm going to lead by acknowledging that I wrote about how I needed blogging and this community here, and why it is a challenge for me when I feel disengaged.  I don't want to spend a whole lot more time talking about it, because it really makes me feel incredibly socially awkward. 

I tried to write about Facebook for the last 20 minutes, but that just turned into an awkward recap of the evolution of Facebook, not my own personal story with it.  With the exception of blogging, I don't feel like I'm that "into" social media.   I stay off of Facebook as much as humanly possible, though it saves me behind with the birthday reminders sometimes.  I used to love twitter, but it's hard to keep up with.  I love the twitter, though.  It's easy and fast to say hey to someone (or everyone), and some really funny stuff happens sometimes.  I love people's pictures on Instagram, but have a hard time remembering to update my own.  That, or I have nothing of value or interest to post.  I don't tumblr.  I don't vine.  I don't snapchat.  I don't LinkIn.

I love knowing the technology exists, though, and that I can reach out and talk to people near or far in new and novel ways.  Just stop with the dumb games for Facebook already, that's all I flipping ask.  Is that so much?


  1. Dropping by from Blogtember Link Up!

    I try and avoid Facebook as much as possible too, it just leads to me feeling inadequate about life, I stick to using the FB Messenger app on my phone and like you said, remembering birthdays.

    Looking forward to reading more of your posts!


  2. Haha I totally thought your entire post was just the Britney Spears picture and you saying you forgot to write a post last night. And I would have totally accepted it as a post entirely. And loved it.

  3. I'm not into facebook at all. I mean I was for my last job, but in reality I'm just not that into it.

    I do love twitter though but don't feel like I use it that weird?

  4. I am feeling the same way about Facebook and Twitter. And I totallly agree with Deidre. I don't think I use it right!
