Is that a word? Meh, oh well. This blog is being written simply to state that I'm going to be deleting my facebook account for a while. After making this announcement I'll keep it up for a few more days so people who don't get online can see the update, but I definitely taking the step to delete it for a while. I'm considering going a month without facebook. Maybe I won't actually delete my account, but I won't be going on at least for a month. Can I do it? I think I can. I'll have plenty of things to do in the mean time.

What I'm realizing is that I spend way too much time on facebook, which is a waste of time and a completely impersonal way of trying to stay in touch with people. The people that I really care about and who care about me are in my phone book and I'm in theirs, and if they want to talk to me, then they will. I'm tired of trying to keep in touch with people who don't care to keep in touch with me, and I need to be able to focus on where I'm at and what I'm doing at the moment instead of talking to people that I'll either never see again or who just really don't care about our friendship.

This is a big step for me. It sounds pathetic since it's just facebook, but it's true. I need to move on with my life and do something different. I need to work on myself and who I am in Christ instead of being focused on how many people I'm friends with, what pictures I'm tagged in, etc. I'll be keeping up with my blog and updating people through that, so you can follow my blog if you'd like. If not, then I'll talk to you all in a month.

  1. You can do it Bethany! I've done it twice before, and it always proved healthy for me. It takes self-control to delete once's facebook, since so many people are on it. I agree that its so easy to get caught in the "fb" trap of picturing tagging,lack of personal communication, applications and other junk. Thanks for encouraging the rest of us!
