Letter or Sticky note

I continue to be amazed at the number of comments and emails I get from this damn blog - that I pay barely any attention to.   Having received another email this morning and a comment over the weekend, it occurred to me that I gain more amusement in this alone, than I do in the entire Facebook empire.  So thank you (and you know who you are) - for that!

Nothing wrong with Facebook. I will admit to stopping by around once a week just to see what family are up to and I usually can find out what friends are doing, too.  I found out alot of things I really don't want to know, in addition.   I will admit to needing to "tidy up" my friend list, because the amount of mind numbing minutia that passes over my screen is a large part of what keeps me away and fighting back the yawns and eye rolls each time I visit.  Or maybe I need a better class of "friends" ?  LOL If you are reading this post - this isn't you ;)

I have had my fun there, but it's been awhile since I posted anything there even worth commenting on.  The point of it all gets so lost on me.   Does anyone really care that I am sitting at a stop light watching a guy shave?  Will the world leap off its axis if I don't tell everyone I know that I cannot find a candle I bought 6 months ago? Or maybe space and time will stop as we know it, if I don't  post "GO HAWKS" or "GO PACK" each time there is a football game? 

Fair is fair, however.  The flip side to this is there are a number of things people post that I find quite valuable, thought provoking and worth reading.  Updates on friends and family are one of my main reasons for stopping back.  It is also a great place to get information to or from people quickly.  The hilariousness of some of the comments and conversations also keep me coming back - if only once a week at that.  There are also Facebook accounts that track a health issue, great cause or an issue people want to follow and support.  Beyond these things, however, (and these things are normally in the minority of what gets up there and people follow) Facebook is just kinda lost on me! 

My blog list, aside from one blog, is a graveyard now.  Blogs left in the dust for the immediate gratification of Facebook.  I did it too...  But, I must admit I miss the days of sitting at my computer with a cup of coffee in the morning reading a more personal approach to the goings on in people's life.   I also miss sitting down and writing a few good paragraphs about things that cross my mind.  Facebook is a such a pared down "sped up" version of that.  It's like a letter in your mailbox vs a sticky note stuck to the side of it on a windy day :)

Blog vs Facebook?  Can't say I would take one OVER the other, especially when 3/4 of family and friends are there -  you have to run with the pack a little if you want to keep up with the race.  But, not lost on me is the fact that this little unimportant, (rarely posted to) blog still generates emails, comments, and opinions... while my Facebook posts, no matter how valuable - are as good as gone and forgotten after one day.

Well, I for one have continued to blather on and on but I don't seem to get much feedback so I just keep blathering.
I'm glad to see you are back to writing. I miss those days a few years ago when MG and MnMom and you and I all blogged and chatted and kept it cool.
Now I'm just so busy with school but lately I feel like facebook gets in the way sometimes. I do have a few friends I like to banter with but overall it is such an ego-stroking device for so many that I eye-roll too. And yet, I can't quite bring myself to give it up! I must be a bit of a narcissist too!
Keep writing and stop by and tell me to write something interesting for a change!

Hello ladies! Well I think I will probably pick this up again! I have swarms of topics swirling around my head that would do well here and live on in cyber space for years to come! LOL Thanks for stopping back!
I will swing by and see what you have been up to while I was gone!
