Dear Blogspot...

Dear Blogspot,
You may have noticed recently that we've been growing apart. I don't visit as often. I've neglected my readers. I've stopped reading other bloggers stuff. I just wanted you to know that I still love you, but things have changed.

I have found someone else.

Her name is Facebook.

She is fresh, attractive and non- judgemental. I don't feel any pressure to log on to her page. She has connected me with dozens of old friends with whom I can instantly reminisce about old times, instead of sitting around for hours trying to conjure up memories and hunt and peck them down on my keyboard. Many of the people I've shared with you on my webpage at Blogspot have now come to life over at Facebook. With you, those old friends just sit there, static, waiting for someone to read about them, occasionally. On Facebook old friends come alive. I can see that Sheryl from summer camp back in the '80's just "went for a hike". I can read that an ex-co worker "just put on a pot of coffee". I can see that a friend from the old neighborhood has kids that are uglier than THEY were at that age. Facebook is instant gratification. It's cocaine. You on the other hand are like an old, drunk, uncle, telling the same stories over and over and over.

You know that we first got together I was upfront with you. I told you that I wanted to have a place to write some stuff and archieve thoughts. I made you no promises except only to write when things were fresh, relevant and interesting. Lately you have been smothering me. I feel obligated to you when I am too young and active to be tied down. I need to be free and do what I want. I hope you understand. I know what you are going to say. "Facebook is just a fling. She'll rock your world, then leave you after she's had her fun." Maybe so. But I have to do this for me.

It's not you... it's me.

I still love you. I'm just not "in love" with you anymore.

I hope we can still be friends.

Your friend,

PS: Maybe this is just a phase. Please don't hate me.

PPS: I know that Facebook is pretty open about things, so maybe the three of us can go out some time? ;)

man, you've been missed. i have had a hard time coming to the realization that i must join Facebook (i am the advisor for a college fraternity and all of them are on Facebook AND i don't wanna seem like a dirty old man on a site with a bunch of high school and college kids)... but i am getting closer and closer to opening an account.

i'll be honest with you, i hope this is just a phase for you! *smile*

Can you imagine my stuff on Facebook? Come on. Nobody over there has the patience for more than 25 words, and I write 1,500.

You may be in love with her (or in lust with her) but dear Blogger is the only one willing to accept the real me :-)

So that's where you've been! I joined FB a few months ago and couldn't believe how many people are on there! It's okay, but I have to admit that I like twitter and blogging better. Twitter is even faster than FB and I feel more at home on my blog.

Of course I'm thrilled that you came to FB, since it's how we "re-connected". At the same time, I just realized today that you have this blog. GREAT STUFF!!! You have to keep writing here too! I've enjoyed several of your posts and will need to come back soon to enjoy more!
