Why I’ve Abandoned Facebook (at least for a while)

I joined Facebook a little over a year ago and was immediately enthralled with the site. It was fantastic to reconnect with old friends…some of whom I’d not talked to in quite some time. My network of friends has exploded, somewhere over 250 people are in my list and, yes, most of them are actually people whom I truly consider friends. Facebook has been a lot of fun, a lot of fun, maybe too much fun…

And that’s what it comes down to. I’m spending too much time on Facebook. It’s become a consuming habit. I feel the constant need to check it, and update my status. And well, this really is a problem because it has taken over parts of my life.

I don’t need to live my life out online. (Well, maybe I do, why else would I write this here blog)…I guess I don’t need to live it out online in multiple outlets. To anyone who feels disappointed that I’m not on Facebook at this point in time, trust me, its not because of you. There were no “bad” experiences I had with anyone on Facebook that drove me to deactivate my account. It’s simply a personal choice that I’m going to try to make.

If you didn’t get my details down from Facebook before I disconnected (heaven knows I didn’t take everyone’s email out of FB) feel free to contact my via email or via the contact link on this blog.
