My sister, who is on Facebook, tells me I should have an account. That everyone we used to know has an account and would like to hear from me. That they ask about me. I guess that is another reason I don't have an account. I'm a very busy person. I really don't want to know what everyone had for dinner or what movie they saw. Especially not people I knew 20 to 30 years ago. If someone wants to meet for coffee, call me, or send me a note, I'm all for it. But Facebook seems to me to be an ongoing daily time commitment. One I don't want to get obligated to. So currently I'm not really media friendly.
Another reason I don't have Facebook is because my husband and I are landlords. We have had rental property for 20 years. Another landlord I know, who doesn't even live in the city he owns property, told me about a women posting on his page, asking did he own the house on XXXXX street, that the toilet was broken and hadn't worked in a week. Seems the property management company was not responding as she felt they should. I know that would happen to me. I would probably get death threats posted on line when I evicted someone. So I think it is better I keep a low media profile.
One thing I do need to do is match all my Internet personalities. The email address I use the most, doesn't match my twitter account or my blog address. So I need to work on all that soon. And maybe I need to get over this fear I have of people knowing who I am. I am also mortified by some of the things my adult children post on their pages. So I keep my life compartmentalized.
I do have a twitter account, but that I use mostly for "group" activities like B90 Days and Hello Mornings. I have this blog, but most people who know me in real life, don't know I have a blog.
There are people that I do associate with on the Internet, other Bloggers and Twitter friends. I have some people that I am close to and admire. They just live in a different place than I do, and some of them look like cartoon characters!
I know this is not what I was suppose to write, but this is me. I'll see you next week! Thanks for stopping by. Honey
