Better than sliced bread

Well, I don't know about that.

Local, and not so local, bloggers are signing up for Facebook in droves. We're all busy filling out our profiles and adding everyone as friends (except me, of course, because I'm not in the loop.)

I hardly have time to blog. It was getting to the point of not knowing how I would keep it up with homeschooling in the Fall, but now there's all the posting of comments to each others' walls.

I'm a Luddite, folks. I've had a webpage for about ten years, a blog for over a year and now Facebook. My brain can't handle any more techie stuff. My family needs clean clothes.

And, I see I'm not alone. Surprisingly, the folks who are on Facebook are either kids like my nephews and my cousins' kids (oh, the friends I could have if I added all my rellies, but I doubt they'd want to have an "old lady" as one of their friends). Even though I worked in a tech field for many years, none of these friends are currently on Facebook...or else they are using a different e-mail address and an assumed name. That could be.

I'm not going to ping them with a request to join either. Don't want to open a Pandora's box.

However, if you're on Facebook, send me a friend request. I'm listed under my real name.

In for a penny, in for a pound.

I'm with you on this!! :)

Facebook?? I've been "invited" to friend's lists and all that crap - I don't have time to that!

I've said it before and I'll say it again - Swiss Miss, you and I are alot alike!

I left some friend requests hang for awhile, but then the "locals" got going and I didn't want to be the only blogger on my block not on Facebook!

It's a compliment that you think I'm like you...thanks!
