Lately I've been feeling a little bit like I shouldn't keep my facebook account. I do this from time to time - delete my account and then eventually start it up again after an absence of a few months or so. I noticed that my blog updates in April and July were more frequent, and I want to make sure I'm blogging because writing is really important to me and I want to be writing as much as I can. In April, I was blogging a lot because I'd given up facebook for lent. In July, I didn't have a job, so I had a lot more free time. I can't very well quit my job just to write my blog (much as I'd love to just live off of writing!) so I think the best decision is to stop with the facebook.
It all comes down to how much time I waste on facebook. Sam and I found a really great church in Salem where the pastor speaks truth - no sugarcoating here - and a few weeks ago he spoke about the importance of stewardship. I need to be a good steward of my money, yes, but I also need to be a good steward of my time, and facebook does not help me do that. I know for some people it's not a big deal; Sam, for example, goes weeks without really checking in. But for me, it's a way to procrastinate, to put off doing things I really should be doing. So what should I do? Eliminate it from my life.
So...the only reason I'm really even writing about this is in case anyone finds my blog through facebook. If you want to be updated when I post, you can sign up for the "follow by email" or you can become a follower. And if you don't care to keep updated, that's fine too! I'll keep writing even if no one reads it. :) Just thought I'd let you know, if there is anyone who happens to read when I put posts on facebook and cares to keep reading.
Also, random thing - I got an US magazine in the mail today - sent to Kimberly Swensen (not how you spell my name) and I have no idea how I got it. I never signed up for it or paid for it. Isn't that random? Do magazines just send free issues now? Or did someone sign me up and pay for a subscription to this magazine for me? I have no idea. So random. I know that has nothing to do with the rest of my post, I just am still a bit baffled by it.
And...time for bed.
