Simplifying My Life With MORE Facebook

Yes, you read that correctly. I am going to simplify my life by spending more time on Facebook. Before you think I’ve lost my mind, let me explain.

When I was in Arizona visiting my family, I took a break from blogging, Tweeting, Facebooking, emailing, etc… for about 2 1/2 weeks. As I’m sure many of you are aware, the computer can be a major time suck!

So when I returned, I decided that I wasn’t going to let the computer rule my life anymore. One way I’ve been practicing this is by not worrying so much about posting to my blog daily {gasp!}. I know, I know, if you have a blog, “everyone” tells you that you should post daily in order to keep your readers. Well, I just don’t have that kind of time…or rather, I’d rather not spend that kind of time on the computer. I’d rather spend it with my kids, cleaning the house (necessary evil), focusing on my Etsy shop, sewing, etc…

But, one easy way I’ve found to stay connected with all of you without having to write a big, long, blog post is through Facebook. I love that I can just jump on once or twice a day and say hi, share a recipe, tell you I found a worm in the washing machine, whatever! You may not see me everyday on the blog, but I am on Facebook everyday.

So if you are on Facebook, please come by and “Like” me so we can keep up throughout the day! And then we can go back to actually living our lives ;)

P.S. If you do come by and "Like" me, make sure you say hello so I know you've joined the party!


  1. Booooooo. Ha ha j/k.
    I'm not a facebooker ;(
    Someone a while back set up a fake facebook account in my name, stole pictures of my kids from blog, and was acting as if they were me. It was freaky. I still have no idea who it was, but finally got facebook to close the account (only after sending a legal letter from my sister's husband that's a lawyer. So, I've had a bad taste in my mouth ever since. But, I will still diligently read all of your blog posts whenever you do them :)

  2. am the opposite. fb can be a time sucker. i get going on one person's page and then onto another. before long, i am friends with kevin bacon. we will miss you, but will look forward to seeing you post when you can.

  3. Hi Rebecca, I'm not on Facebook and probably never will be. I blog and tweet and have no time for any other computer or social networking thing. So I'll just continue to visit your blog. I've been blogging for 15 months just once a week. You do NOT need to post to your blog every day!


I LOVE to hear from you guys! You all are the GREATEST! (And I love to reply to comments so make sure you have an email address attached to your Blogger Profile!)
