For years I was only on blogs. I tried Facebook twice. Didn't like it and left both times. Now I'm back a third time and have been there more than blogs for the past few years.
Why did I leave Facebook in the past? Because it's tiresome and mostly pointless. Yes, everyone I know is there and I can get news in an instant on how everyone is. But most times people post jokes, pictures, more jokes, games... real conversation is non-existent and news vanishes in a deluge of junk.
Why did I go back? Because I do have friends/family who only go onto Facebook. They never read blogs or websites. They don't even do email.
But lately that's not enough. I can't completely stop Facebook. There are still friends and family there who do not connect any other way. But I'm tired of scanning a hundred fragments and pictures in order to find out how my friends are. I think it's time I stepped back into the (more) real world of blogging again!
