I always was a late bloomer. I just found my way onto Facebook about 8 months ago. I was the last person I knew who wasn't on it. I promptly got sucked in to the farming - because who doesn't want to dream of crops in the Winter - and then found that hours were being siphoned away into a black hole of reading posts and accepting friend requests from people who had been horrible to me in high school.
I do like keeping up to date with my long-distance friends, and with my favourite authors and bloggers, but I've decided I can do that just as easily by taking that hour of Facebook time a day and translating that into reading their websites and blogs. And keeping up with my own, which has been difficult to do of late.
I don't want to give up the blogging (or reading and enjoying everyone else's blogs) but something has to give. And with all the privacy issues on Facebook, it was an easy choice.
Farewell Facebook - and good riddance!
