As we all know, I went through a little blog crisis the other day, but as I recently commented on my last post, I will not be quitting my blog. But I do have to say that I’ve been doing some serious thinking on this whole blog/facebook/myspace/twitter stuff. I can’t help to think that it is all a lot of pretend relationships. I know that there are valid friendships that you keep up with on facebook, but how much time I’ve wasted looking at people’s lives that I will never even have a conversation with is embarrassing and disturbing. Especially because in that time I could ACTUALLY be investing in someone who I do know or am in a real relationship with. I’m not saying that I am going to quit reading blogs completely or stop facebook or myspace, because I do enjoy those things, I just need to get back to the real world a bit!
So to end on a positive note, here is a picture we saw today while out walking around in The Hague.
You’ve made some great observations in this post. This is a breakthrough. May we all learn from this.
Wow Jen, your right. I too sit on Facebook checking out other peoples pages and messages.
Why? Because I’m snoopy, that’s why.
Your post was an eye opener. I have to say though, I will continue to read your blog and more than likely, Facebook too. 🙂
I will however try to remember to value and take care of my friendships.
Does that dog cement piece say “Not here” in Dutch?
It just seems like it would say that. Like telling the dogs not to crap there. Sorry..>I know you wrote about something else…but I am hung up on that picture.
Thanks for the comments!
And YES! It does say that! Isn’t it awesome!?!?
