Blogging in the Time of Facebook

On New Year’s Resolutions

Remember that post a little while ago where I promised to update the blog more regularly?  Yeah, me neither.  But I came across it today.  And by today, I mean the-first-time-I’ve-even-visited-the-blog-in-2-months.

Here’s what happened: Facebook.  I have seriously just emerged from a two month period where I neglected emails, phone calls, and occasionally even the happiness-inducing ring of Skype (yes, I admit it!  I might have ignored your call, Mom!) because I was on Facebook.  Now, I could go on and on about how this social networking site is about the most anti-social thing that’s ever happened to me, but let’s be honest…I love it.

However, a wise person has informed me that sometimes it’s important to set limits.  Even with yourself!  So I’m working on some rules, and among them is the “blog clause,” which stipulates that I shalt not linger on Facebook if I haven’t updated The Expat Life within the past week.

We’ll see how it goes.
