Hello Autumn!

Autumn by BobbieAJ

I love this time of year… the weather is cooling down and suddenly orange and brown is everywhere.  It always gives me a warm feeling inside as I find myself reminiscing of fond memories of my childhood.  I know I will soon have to dig out my jackets and sweaters.  I hope that we will be able to squeeze in at least a couple of camping trips before it gets too cold.  Texas is funny like that.  One day it’s HOT and the next there could be snow on the ground.

Today I got back on Facebook after doing the 30 day challenge.  I had two job opportunities waiting for me when I logged on haha!  As far as my personal contacts… I didn’t even have one.  I had notifications waiting for me and as I viewed them I realized there were mostly game invites.  Scrolling through the newsfeed it was mostly about the Ebola scare here in Dallas, memes’, but most of it are things that I can’t relate to.

The definite highlight of getting back on Facebook is to see my handsome nephew!  This kid is so darn CUTE!  We are due for a visit to Massachusetts soon. He is growing up way too fast. I wouldn’t be surprised if he is starting to talk by the time we see him!

So anyway, back to Facebook thing – what I learned is that Facebook does NOT encourage social interactions with your friends, family, and acquaintances.  Facebook is merely a tool that CAN make it easier to communicate with those you love but you have to reach out and not expect people to contact you first.  I’m still going to use Facebook but I will not be going back to looking at it obsessively in the past.  I won’t even download it on my phone again.  I will check it once maybe twice max a day.

Since I had my wisdom teeth pulled I haven’t been posting much but with a new month starting, I hope I can start fresh, and post more regularly now.  Is there anything in particular you’d like to see me write about?  Please leave a comment! =)

    Congrats on completing the Facebook challenge! I use FB to advertise my site and keep in contact with some people from work but I do agree that otherwise there isn't much social interaction. I barely even do anything on it anymore since I rarely post status updates, like/comment on others, or play games. Despite that it is almost always open in one of my tabs… crazy.

    As for trying to keep your blog active the best advice I have is just to make it a daily habit! Its so easy to let it go and put it off, but then you fall weeks behind and lose the traffic that was being generated. Has happened to me several times.

    I agree, there isn't much social interaction on Facebook. The only reason why I have a Facebook page to begin with is it allows me to keep up with what is going on with friends and family that I wouldn't get to see otherwise. Some of these people I wouldn't get to see for months if not for Facebook.
