so, confession: i created a new Facebook page a couple weeks ago. i have exactly one friend (the hubster) and that’s how it’s going to stay. i started over solely to make new pages for my blogs. (if you can create a “fan page” for something without having a personal account, i haven’t figured it out.)
anyway, despite just hiding out over here in the corner, i’m getting friend requests—and ignoring them. (if you’re among the people who’ve sent a request, my apologies.) i really don’t want to jump back into the deep end, if you know what i mean.
even though—warning: tangent ahead—i've realized i’m falling hopelessly out of touch with my friends the longer i'm away from the site. still, i refuse to stay connected via Facebook. yes, it’s quick and easy but, along the same lines as Ann Patchett’s point yesterday, quick and easy isn’t always good. in fact, it rarely is. so i am doing my best to stay in touch with people the old-fashioned way (which is now e-mail, sadly), but if it goes unreciprocated, i’ll just have to deal with that.
back to the matter at hand: if you’re reading this and still have a Facebook account, will you please click here and “like” this blog? i believe—if i’m remembering correctly—that will allow my blog posts to pop up in your newsfeed again.
i realize i’m reeking of hypocrisy right about now—relying on a site i renounce to boost the ol’ readership.
but, hey, pobody’s nerfect.
