Deactivated the FaceBook

Yes. I did. It gets in the way of what I need to get done. Like finishing stories that I've started. They need to be finished.

Not to mention, it's a lot of mental clutter and ME-ISMS. It also reminds me of a shopping mall. And for those who've been following me for a while know how much I hate going to the mall.

Eventually, I plan to go back. But...we'll see.

Anyway, still trying to get back on track with this blog. I know I can. I know I can.

Hope all is well with everyone!

Hugs and chocolate,
Shelly

  1. I did the same two years ago but for different reasons and now my whole life is easier.

    1. So you've totally weaned yourself off of Facebook? That is cool.

  2. Hi Shelly,

    I totally get what you mean. Although, in my case, I use it to share blog posts and yeah, okay, to share my vital profile updates.

    Of course, "Farcebook", can be too distracting and rather disillusioning.

    All the best with your blogging and writing focus.

  3. I just go on Facebook when I have little or nothing to do. I do like the comedic posts which come up and sometimes the food ones are good too. Many others I just skim

    1. When I go back, I will be changing how I use it.

  4. I had problems with Facebook last year of a different kind and was ready to just throw in the towel with the whole thing. Your priorities right now are more important.

  5. I understand perfectly. I gave up TV about 6 months ago. I can't really give up social media, since it's important for marketing Soul Cutter and my soon-to-be-finished novel. Good luck freeing up your time and mental energies!

    1. There are other arenas to market.

  6. Good move! I'm glad I've never dived into Facebook.

    1. It's a time suck and if someone doesn't like you, they can have you put into FaceBook Jail. It's also addicting.

  7. I've never been stuck in Facebook jail. I don't use it as often as I once did, but I keep it to help stay in contact with friends and family who live far away.

    My bigger time suck addiction would be Pinterest, I think. :)

    1. It's been quite freeing, actually.

  8. I stop by Facebook about once a week to see pictures of people standing in front of restaurants and to ignore invitations to play some candy game. Good move, Shelly.

    1. Today, I don't feel that FaceBook obligation. IT'S NICE!

  9. Mike left Facebook quite a while ago and never came back. He told me he has no regrets.

  10. Congratulations for taking that step.
    I keep talking about it ... but to have a business page, FB requires a personal page. Sigh.
    Not sure I ready to let go of my business pages yet.

    1. I didn't find that having a biz page helped me sell my books. I'm a low key marketer. Not an in your face kind.

  11. I deleted mine for a month or so awhile back. Lately I only have time for a few moments to check the first 10 or so on my news feed.

  12. I'm not really a fan of Facebook, so it's relatively easy for me to ignore its existence for a while.

    Also, I find that it (and most other social networks) are becoming steadily more useless.

  13. Can't blame you for leaving Facebook for awhile. FB changed its format so often I could never figure it. I often have to hunt down friends to see their posts.

    But I've switched IP service so now instead of counting minutes on the internet, I can enjoy my visits . . . and take time to comment on blog posts!

I'm dying to know what you think.
