I’m on the verge of deleting my Facebook. I’m shocked that I’m saying this because FB is something that I have thoroughly enjoyed, but I’m getting kind of sick of it, to be honest.
Don’t get me wrong, it has been a great marketing tool for my business. And I truly enjoy being able to keep up with my friends and family on there. But, know what I don’t like? I don’t like when I feel obligated to accept a friend request from an “acquaintance” or a “friend of a friend that I kinda sorta know”.
I also feel like I get sucked in to my news feed and quite honestly, I’m tired of scrolling through tons of crap just to get to something that I’m interested in seeing.
I’m also tired of coming across something funny and then feeling the instant need to “share” it. I’m tired of feeling like I need to post pictures of everything we do. And that’s all of my own doing – I’m not blaming that on anyone but me. But that’s the way it feels and I’m just kinda over it.
I miss blogging and the sense that I can post anything I want and only a select few will be reading it. I know I have the power to unfriend or not accept friend requests on FB, but there’s a whole other side to all of that. The whole deal where someone will see that you are friends with so and so, so why aren’t you friends with me? I don’t know…just sick of all that noise. I’ve been spending more time with the blog lately and going back and reading my old posts from years ago and I’ve been filled with so much joy at all of the memories. I just can’t get that with FB and I want to preserve these precious memories for my girls.
I will probably keep my Instagram because I like how it’s not so involved. Plus, there are a lot of fitness accounts on there that I follow and actually want to see what they post daily.
Like I said, I’m on the verge…I haven’t actually taken the plunge yet, but it’s on my to-do list this week for sure. And it feels really good to say that. 🙂
