I started blogging some time last year after I completed the treatment for Hepatitis C. I also started my retirement about this time. I felt I had so much time with so little to do, so I did what most people are doing...........BLOGGING. I discovered, to my pleasure, I was able to kill time and needleess to say, boredom as well. It has helped to preserve my sanity!
Then, my dear husband started bragging that he was on Facebook. Not one to be left out, I hurriedly signed up and was rather excited when I, too, was accepted on Facebook. I felt very pleased that I was part of the Facebook community, but it was not for long.
The next day.........SHOCK! HORROR! Except for a few names which were familiar, the rest were TOTAL STRANGERS. What were they doing in my Facebook. This was definitely an intrusion into my privacy. I saw a lot of activities posted on my "wall". It was certainly not my cup of tea. So, I shied away from Facebook. I was not ready to allow strangers to have a sneak preview of my activities UNTIL..........
A few days ago, I decided to check on my Facebook. With so many rave reviews about it, I decided to do some exploring before calling it quits for the second time. I have to admit I was too hasty in my initial judgement. I was pleased to discover that I could actually control the traffic flow in my Facebook. I can pick and choose my friends and I can control the postings on my wall. GREAT!
When I told my husband about this new discovery, he proudly announced that he is currently a member of Twitter. Oh no! Not another one! This time I will not plunge in blindly like I did with Facebook. Talking about my dear husband, he knows next to nothing about Facebook or Twitter. Never mind, at least I achieved something through his boastful claims.
