I really do plan a more substantial post in the near future. However, I just realized that this might be a good place to make a public pronouncement:
I am really no good at the Facebook thing.
My wife is doing a great job — she goes out there, interacts, posts pictures, etc. I just — well — don’t.
Part of the issue seems to be that I spend so much time on the computer doing work-related activity that when free-time arrives, continuing to sit at the computer just seems like the most unappealing thing in the world. That wasn’t always a problem for me, but since obtaining a laptop notebook I am on so much more than I used to be, and now I cherish time away from a QWERTY keyboard of any sort. (And, no, going Dvorak is not the solution…)
So for all of you out there who are wondering why you don’t hear from me much in the Facebook universe — my apologies! I hope you do not take it personally. I actually like the ease with which “keeping up” can be done there, and I do look forward to taking advantage of Facebook more thoroughly one day. But when the day is done and I can escape the computer, I just have a hard time sitting down and staring at the monitor any longer. I need something more exciting and stimulating by then. You know — like sitting down and staring at the TV. 🙂
Whew! That assuages a little bit of my Facebook guilt. Any other confessions out there?
