Ode to Annie

Well not really. Annie was non-plused that I wasn't on Facebook. I told her that I tried it for a couple of hours last year and it didn't seem to be my thing. She said it's the way to keep in contact. I said that's, in part, what the blog does. "So it's all about you?" I nodded, I was OK with that.

Most of the people I know are on Facebook. They seem to be constantly checking something on it.

So, as of about a half hour ago, I'm kind of on Facebook. To the best of my ability, I've set the privacy settings at no one but a friend can access the site (is that what it's called?).

What am I going to do with it? That's a good question. Maybe nothing. But here's my thought. There are times that I have a thought, more a snippet of a thought. Not worthy of a post; but, something that I might want to put out there. I'm too lazy to put it in an Email and then spam all my friends. And spamming isn't usually a good idea. But, if I put it out there and you decide you want to read my snippet, that can't be bad.

A blog in short form. Stop the laughter about me saying something in short form.

So, I'm not sure how this works. The name on Facebook is Evad Knat. Want to be my friend? It may well not last; but, I think Facebook divorces are pretty cheap.

Twitter is the place for snippets. Just sayin'.

With my rambling writing, Twitter is never gonna be a favorite with me. LOL
Facebook though -well I like the ease of putting up albums of photos and/or videos. Easy should be my middle name ya know.
I don't like all the game stuff on FB though -With everyone and their brother playing Farmville or Mafia whatever and the Aquarium thingy and then posting what they need or bought of won or whatever, I get a lot bored reading those things.
But I like other things on FB too -ease of connection to lots and lots of people, for sure.
And it you decide to do a trial marriage with FB and want to add me as a friend, it would be an honor for me to add you to my list too. (Jeni Hill Ertmer) And yes, I think FB divorces can be had quite inexpensively and fast too! r

Jeni -- You can suppress all of those Mafia Wars and Farmville updates without suppressing the person making them.
