Facebook


On my link list, is Facebook. It is really cool, because I have found lots of friends that otherwise I would have probably never have heard from again.

They made a big change lately that has most people pissed off. I like that on Blogger, if they make a change, the new people who sign up after the change get the newest version, but the oldsters get to keep their version.

I worry because a lot of the people on my "Blogs I Always Read" list seem to have quit updating their blogs. It has happened before. Soon I'll have to go edit my list.

It's laziness on my part, I put a lot of time in my blog, try to find new blogs, then I get a list and become complacent. The active bloggers slowly disappear and I don't replace them.

The same thing happens here on this island, you're new, you go out, make an effort to make new friends, create a circle of friends, then relax. Slowly the circle of friends gets smaller, and aren't replaced. Pretty soon there's only a few people that you're close with, and it seems like the whole island is shrinking.

Life takes continual effort.

Life does take continual effort, doesn't it .. and time flies. Those 2 components must be kept in mind at all times, otherwise, it's very possible to wake up a lonely person.

I love updating my blog, even with FB. I can add so much more on my blog than I can do with FB. So, you don't have to worry about me. Updating my blog is like a strange addiction, but FB is, too. :)

I really don't like the new facebook.

The continuous circle of life is as you have described it. I am able to update my blog on a regular basis now that I'm home, but when I go back to work ... I'm gonna lapse again, but I'm gonna try to keep posting. I've been blogging since 2004 ... and I'm still here.
