Sheesh, I have really made a lot of changes in one month of 2013. My newest one... another Facebook break. I feel like I'm definitely addicted to it in many ways, and I'm really just sick of it. Sure, it has it's uses and I've never really been one of the naysayers of the social media outlet. I do like a lot of things about it, but I've started to desire a little more privacy in my life (funny, considering I write a blog, right). I also have started desiring having a little mystery about my friend's lives, too. I don't really feel the need to know everything my friends are thinking, their opinions about anything, and "funny" little pictures people post about this or that... it's just started not to interest me, and to actually annoy me.
I won't be giving up on Facebook forever. I know that for a fact. I have a page for my book on Facebook and a group for my book club that I need to keep up with, and I do like to know what is going on in my friends' lives...but I just need a break.
I know writing a blog is it's own form of expressing my opinion on subjects or giving you details of my life, but for some reason, I feel it's a little bit easier to avoid falling into "overshare" here. I'm not addicted to my blog. I write when I want to write and only get on here if I want to write. More often than not, I can stop myself from hitting publish if I feel I'm getting too personal.
So anyway, just one more thing to add to the list of changes this year. I think I might try to keep my Facebook viewing to once a week, probably on a weekend. We'll see how I feel by the end of this week. Wish me luck!
