I’ve been using Facebook probably since 2007. It’s changed a great deal. Most of my news feed is now filled with selfies and memes, with the occasional interesting intellectual article. It’s great for keeping in contact with people but otherwise I pretty much avoid it. My life isn’t that interesting anyway, you know?
I think more people should get into blogging. It doesn’t even matter if you have viewers, it’s just a great way to express yourself. I feel like my blog represents me so much more than my Facebook. When people ask me for my Facebook link I really just want to direct them to my blog instead. Of course I always oblige and give them the link to my very bare Facebook page.
I love being able to write down my thoughts, as silly, random, and incoherent as they can be. I also love seeing other blogs, I never imagined that there would be so many people out there that thought like me! My favorite part of all of this is that these blogs are from all over the world. Not only is it fun to do but I’m sure it’s far more productive than being on Facebook. I have a finishing product when I’m done blogging, I don’t have a finishing product when I’m done Facebook stalking (besides having unnecessary information on the victim).
Maybe we should get kids in school to start blogging. I wish I had a class on blogging, I really could have used that instead of my art history classes!
