How Facebook Made and Broke My Year!

IMG_6404

Hi Everyone! Well, I have been all over social media in 2013 trying to figure what this whole mess is about.  Twitter was my vice, Tumblr was my biggest confusion, Pinterest was my greatest joy, WordPress was my biggest failure and Facebook was my biggest time leech and regret!

Let’s talk about Facebook for a minute.  I have had a love/hate relationship with it for some time now.  On the bright side, I met some of the best people in the world on Twitter and Facebook in the year 2012 and 2013, but I also experienced some of my greatest hurt as well.  I came to realize that for all the good that is out there, there is going to be those few people that make it miserable for everybody else.  There’s that one Sociopath that just can’t let you be happy.

Facebook is a breeding ground for immaturity and is run by Childish Politics.  You better line up with that bully or this will happen,  “I’m going to unfriend YOU because you wouldn’t let me abuse your family! Then I’ll  harass your family and post passive aggressive memes to gain sympathy for myself!”  The Passive Aggressive Bullying is Unchallenged and so pervasive that it makes a healthy heart sick.  You can’t even stand up for yourself against these people because they group together in clans and will lie, twist your words, slander your character and make it impossible for reason to have its victory. They are sneaky, manipulative and I’ve had enough.  ON TOP OF IT ALL, FB was also an administrative NIGHTMARE!  It was taking me forever to scroll through my newsfeed just to find that one post, from that one great friend.  Aggravating. :-(

I JUST WANT TO FIND MY FRIEND’S POST ON 15 WAYS TO COOK KALE!!!! IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK?!?!?!   LOL!

So I’m taking the excellent advice I received from my best friend, ease off of any seriousness on FB.  I’ve decided to make this social media stuff work for me for a change.  I am sick of being Facebook’s *itch! I will be spending much more time here on WordPress sharing makeup, manicures, Geek Stuff, and now more family stuff.  I will also be using Twitter which will help save time because I can post my updates once!  I’m going to use Facebook in a more professional sense to protect my family from the Busybodies and Bullies, and also, so I can enjoy it for all the inspiration and love that it has the potential to offer.

Welcome back to my blog and I hope you have a great 2014!  Let’s make this year work for us, Friends!  Circumstance can kiss our lily white ones <3

Special Thanks to the following people who have been an inspiration to me and who have kicked me when I needed it!

-My besties, Machie, Decca, and Gelanie for their unfailing love and mercy! LOL (not their real names)

-Cher-Ron  for understanding me and helping me despite understanding me! ;P (again not real name)

-@Keeba13, @MrsDarthKramer, @spacekicker, @SizzlerKistler for your undying ability to care for others! (real Tweeps and you should follow them on Twitter)

-Rhoda Joy and Jordan Kimble Charters for being an unstoppable positive force in this world! (also follow them @RhodaJoyOFFICIAL and @JKCharters)

-And of course, my Mom, for your loving devotion! <3

Much Love! <3

  1. So. Much. Truth.

  2. I absolutely agree, Facebook can be awful (actually, people on it) – so far, WordPress has been my favourite and most addictive thing : )
    Looking forward to your new posts!

    • The thing that upset me the most is that I created a WP blog to avoid FB but then a family member made me question having a blog. They didn’t mean any harm, but no one ever stopped by the blog. Then I would get FB messages asking for more pictures and more updates. After a year and a half of nonsense I realize WordPress is a much better environment for what I want to do. I cant be doing everything for everyone else. At some point I have to do something for myself. Glad to be back!
