I remember when I first heard about Twitter, my thoughts were... Who on the face of the earth could possibly care about what I might be doing at any point in the day? However, when Whitney and her family went to the beach, I signed up for a Twitter account, thinking I could keep up with my grandkids' first trip to the ocean, if Whitney tweeted about their trip. Smart phones make connecting with friends an easy task, and I thought she might be more inclined to do that than send e-mails. Nada. With no news from the vacationing grandchildren, I quickly became bored with it. Not to mention all the strange people who wanted to "follow" me. Seriously? I think I still have the Twitter account, but I forgot my password.
Anyway, Facebook, for some people, has become the same kind of tool. Oh, I've posted my share of goofy statuses too, most of which are always unworthy of a comment. (Ignored) I'm not one of the Facebook "Stars" with thousands of friends fawning at my every post, with 50 comments after each one. Probably half of my posts never get comments at all, and who knows, maybe my FB friends just glance right over them. After all, what young college student would possibly be interested in my pillow talk with the grandchildren? (Well, Kate would be that exception, but that's because she loves my grandchildren...). Anyway, my point here is that a lot of the postings on FB are pretty silly, and sometimes I'm like... "huh?"
Today, I wanted to share some exciting news. And since my blog is networked to FB, it will show up on FB, where I am certain that all 201 of my FB friends will be reading my blog and posting their congratulations on this momentous occasion.
Paul, this is HUGE. I had a salad for lunch.
For all the gory details about the "new me", check out my other blog: http://cathyb-thexbandedfiles.blogspot.com/ But be forewarned, there are some scary numbers and photos lurking over there..... and you are sworn to secrecy if you read any of those posts. If you tell my secrets, I will have to kill you.
