Remember at the beginning of the year when I told ya'll that I was done with Facebook and wasn't sure I would ever sign back on?
Well, my hiatus lasted nearly 6-months but this week I caved and logged back on.
The break was WONDERFUL for me personally.
It helped me focus more on me, my marriage and what life it suppose to be about.
During those months though I kept hearing friends and family say things like this:
* You need to get back on FB! We miss not knowing what's going on in your life!
(my reaction: read the blog and you'll know)
* You need to get back on FB and you would know these things.
(when I wouldn't know that someone had gotten married or divorced, etc.)
* Why aren't you on FB? What's wrong?
(my reaction: I need a break from the drama. None of your beeswax)
And, it was TRULY.AMAZING the people I had not talked to in years but had only kept in touch through FB that came out of the woodwork to personally email, text and even CALL me to find out why I had quit FB.
That one kind of bothered me.
Not sure why, but it did.
It made me realize just how powerful FB is in our society.
I also had MULTIPLE friends and co-workers who thought I had 'blocked' them on FB.
Now, I've been known to delete a few people here and there especially when I got upwards of almost a 1,000 friends on there, but I have ever only blocked one person.
So, why did I log back on?
I did feel off the radar a bit and decided it was time to get back on and reconnect with some of the people I worked for years to make connections with.
That's both personally and professionally.
In fact, the news of me logging back on was so BIG that the Los Angeles Times even called me about it.
The article was published in today's issue and a lot of other major newspapers have picked it up as well.
