Can’t Resist Facebook Any Longer

STATUS: I was wondering when the “too good to be true” weather would end and we’d get the smack down. It snowed today. Spring in Colorado.

What’s playing on the XM or iPod right now? WISHING YOU WERE HERE by Chicago

Honestly, I’m just not clever enough for Facebook. Or that’s how I feel most of the times. I’ve been on FB for several years just for family and friends. I like it well enough but post sporadically. However, I love reading everybody else’s posts.

But lately, I’ve been having little tidbits of things that I would love to share but the blog doesn’t feel like the right spot to do it. We’ve had an NLA page but I didn’t really pop on it it often enough. I decided it has to be unique to me to give it care an attention. So here we go.

It’s only been up a day or so and I already have 10 likes! I felt a little thrill. 10 likes!

See that’s the power of Facebook. It makes you delighted over such a small thing….

I’ve posted some action pics during the webinar. Can you believe an attendee grabbed some screenshots and sent them to me? So fun. I loved that she did that.

    I don’t mind Timeline for my personal stuff, but I have to say that it has made admining my fan page more difficult. Ah well, glad to see you’re on Facebook. Sara was getting all the attention!

    Of course, now that you’ve succumbed to Facebook, Twitter cannot be far behind. Muah ha ha ha ha!

    I deactivated my facebook in February, due to distractions. However, when I come back to Facebook, I’m going to make sure to like your page! 🙂

    My dad would be all over that monitor, and even welcome the “blind” jokes that would come his way for it. Facebook is probably going to be more interesting for you than the rest of us – we’re to trying to impress you, our friends just post pictures of themselves doing something moronic.

    You have a lot more than 10 likes now! And I’m one of them 🙂 good thinking getting this up, and not only will this be a good place for you to post things that don’t quite fit in the blog, but facebook will also give you a wider audience, don’t you think?? 🙂

    We all succumb eventually! Actually, I like FB for the writers’ groups but find the rest of it, although amusing, too much of a time sap. Personally, I’m more of a Twitter fan … go on, you know you want to…!!

    Oh wow… that really IS a big monitor! XD
    I stopped using Facebook a good while ago, and it looks like they’ve changed it since I was last there. Hope you find the site useful for your needs!
