I usually try to keep this blog dedicated to Gavin, our other boys and thoughts on being a mother to them. But, today I'm here to write about something that I just don't understand. I'm here to talk about this crazy thing called Facebook. I am so confused about this thing that has overtaken my inbox. Are any of you able to help me with my confusion?
This past week alone, I've been sent about 20 requests to join other people's facebook page. The email says that the person is requesting to be my friend. I don't get this! I thought that we already were friends! Why do I have to click on the link to affirm this friendship?! What is the purpose of Facebook?! I just don't get it! It seems so 'high school' to me.
I usually just make fun of Facebook, but now I'm starting to feel peer pressure to build a site of my own! (Peer pressure...I told you that I thought it was just like high school!) Will someone PLEASE explain to me what all the hype is about this phenomenon?! Is there a good reason to join Facebook? Are people actually benefitting from having a site of their own? Like I said, I just don't get it! Help me to understand this craziness!
I refuse to build a site of my own, unless there is a good reason for it. Often times, in the past, I thought doing a blog was crazy too. I only started this blog to update family and friends on Gavin when he was so sick and in the hospital all of the time. Now I'm glad that I did this, because I have met so many WONDERFUL friends who have been SO SUPPORTIVE to me! I know that I would not have met so many fantastic Mommas, who are caring for their inspirational children, if not for this site. Blogging shares feelings, tips, support and an outlet for bad days. What does Facebook do for you? I've been to a few sites and I am not certain of the reason behind it all. Please help! What is the point? I don't want to be rude and not accept these friendships, but I just don't understand the logic behind it all.
If any of you can give me a great reason why I should jump on the band wagon, then I may just let myself be pulled into all this peer pressure. But, if you can't, then I'm going to just focus on the faces that God has blessed me with, like this adorable one and the faces of his big brothers!
Please enlighten me. Thanks for your help!
