If you know me personally, you would know that this is shocking news. I have signed up for Facebook twice in my life, and each time, it lasted for probably no more than 2 weeks. This was when Facebook was still relatively new, at least in my circle. I just couldn’t keep up with it.
When I started this blog, I knew it was a question I would have to tackle. Should I open a Facebook account (and other social media)?
I know many of us have a love-hate thing with social media. And I definitely see how it can have negative effects. Being on social media doesn’t necessarily make you more social in face-to-face interactions. In fact, it can often have the opposite effect. Picture a room full of people, where no one is talking to each other but they seem to be having more engaging conversations with their devices.
But I also know people, who have used it in a good way, connecting with faraway loved ones or using it as a means to encourage others.
We just have to be balanced.
I decided to set up a Facebook page for this blog as a way to reach out to my readers. I know that it can provide ways for us to interact with one another that is limited by my blog. In addition to posts links, I also plan to include some tidbits of the happenings in my world (not that you’re dying to know about it) as well as other things that I think may be of interest to you. I hope you can stop by!
P.S. I also signed up for a Pinterest account. It’s actually something I’ve been wanting to do as a way to organize all the sites (mostly recipes) that I’ve bookmarked. It does make it visually easier to find things. Anyway, I’ve also included some past blog posts on Pinterest, if that makes it easier for you to find things.
Happy Friday, everyone!
