Years ago I used to post about six or seven status updates on Facebook every day. This was not including the amount of times I’d change my profile picture as well. I went through a phase where I shared any and every humorous Star Wars image I could find.
Back in March of this year I took a drastic approach to this addiction. I deleted all my friends from Facebook. I’m not blaming my friends for my addiction. It’s just they humored my zany antics and prompted me to continue. I needed the next big laugh or long list of “comments” and “likes”. Those feelings never lasted and I craved more attention creating a vicious circle.
I find now that my daily blog is more informative and a better use of my time. It allows me to truly express myself and share how my life is going. I’m also reading more pieces from other bloggers and feeling much more productive. There’s an entire world out there that doesn’t require “a like for a like.”
I still use Facebook, but in a much different facet. I read articles that are enlightening or educational to me. I also interact with my blog followers when they comment. It’s a different, more grown up feeling I’m getting from using Facebook.
And I “like” it.
