To Facebook or not to Facebook
I admit it! I love Facebook! It is super easy to stay connected with people and with my i-phone it is even easier to just check my Facebook as often as wanted. As you all probably know Facebook has a feature where you can share your blog with all your Facebook friends. I have not done this in the past because I wasn't ready to share my weight with all of those people or my journey. However, several of them now know about my blog and it would be nice to have more followers. The comments really do keep me motivated.
If I do it, there are a few people that I might have to delete from facebook. I just don't know what to do? I think I am scared to fail. It's one thing for 25 people to know, its another to tell 250 and all their friends, friends, etc. I finally did break down and tell most of my family. I can't lie though...that was hard since several of my relatives look like playboy models. (You know who you are if you are reading this).
I also don't understand why there are several people that read it regularly but aren't an official follower. Not to be negative but it makes it hard for a blogger sometimes. You don't know who is reading, if it's helping anyone, or if it's worth the time if you don't even know who your followers are or if people don't leave comments. FYI...this is not to fish for comments but do you see why it can be frustrating. Someone once told me that leaving a comment on a blog is like giving a blog hug. I love that analogy. I admit that I don't follow many blogs but the ones that I do, I try to let the author be aware that I am reading. Thank you to the few that do comment or send personal notes...it truly is the wind that fans my flame.
What to do? about Facebook that is............
