People you may know.

Ahhhh, Facebook.











I don't know whether to love you or hate you?

In an attempt to grow my blog this year, I decided to be more active with my Facebook fan page. I mean, you're not anybody unless people "like" you, right?

So, this new endeavor meant I had to email Shell and ask her how to figure out how to create a fan page that wasn't linked to my personal FB page. I'm not anon (I so wish I was.), but I don't like creepers. I guess if you spill your life's stories on the internet for anyone to read, you shouldn't care. But, I'm crazy that way. I like to share something super personal and then worry about who might read it. It keeps things saucy here. Stay-at-home moms need all the excitement they can get. 

If only I knew then what I know I know now.

Too late for this!

I was so excited to know that there was a way around this whole link-my-personal-page-and-fan-page-thing. I just wanted to be able to like other fan pages and connect on there without drawing attention to my blog through my personal page. 

After clicking around on fan pages in the last week, I see that everyone in blog land knows about this trick but me. If you don't, and you want to know. Email me, and I will copy and paste Shell's email to you walk you through it. 

So after, getting things set up I could rest assured knowing that I don't have to worry about Facebook outing me. 

Then. I got on FB. My personal Facebook FB. 

To the right I see this fabulous suggestion box of "People you may know". That's code for "People you should creep".

Guess, who I should creep?

ME! 

WTH?

Oh, facebook. 

warning. ridiculously embarrassing banter to follow. 

My blog me doesn't know anyone that real me knows. So what's the connection? How did you find my blog me? My real me doesn't even "like" my blog me's page, because I  didn't want to aid the connection process. But, it apparently that didn't help. 

I decided to shamelessy ask hubs to go on FB and see if FB told him he might know blog me. Sure enough. He might. 

hubs: why are we doing this?

me: it's hard to explain, just check. ARGH! There I am!

hubs: I don't get it. 

me: sigh...I know you don't, sweetheart. But, thanks for looking. 

It's just one of those things. 

People that don't blog, don't get blogging. Period. My blog is a something I love doing, but I really don't "advertise" it. Some of the people I know IRL read it, and love it. But they are the normal nice and supportive kind of people in my life. I'm not one to invite everyone I know to my blog. I'd rather just grow within the blog community and leave it at that. 

But, thanks to FB technology the sky is the limit! I could become a famous blogger thanks to any haters and creepers in my life.

Maybe there's a way around this too. I don't know? I don't know if I have the energy to care about anonymity anymore. It's a lot of work. And quite frankly, there isn't anything on here I wouldn't share with people IRL. I just don't. I don't regret any posts, and I don't bash or trash talk.

I just keep to myself. Ya know? On the internet. Where thousands of people can see me. 

So, I give up. You win Facebook. 

I may now be known to all family and friends, and random people I went to high school with. Joy. 

2012 is going to be a great year!

Yep, My work Facebook always wants me to be friends with my real facebook! :)

Creepy!

This is exactly why I don't have a blog FB. And I totally get it. One of my very good RL friends reads my blog. That's it.

All of my real friends read my blog, even though they aren't bloggers. I guess they just put up with it! Although FB both my personal and blog accounts always give me the creeps with their "suggestions"

My blog facebook page is linked to my real facebook because I didn't know I could do it differently! Could you possibly please email me that email Shell sent you? Thank you so much!

I guess I'm the only person in the whole wide world that doesn't do Facebook for this very reason, very creepy!

That's the reason I don't have a FB fanpage for my blog...I don't want it to be linked to me.

True, IRL friends do not eeven care about the blog.

I was just wondering today if I should unify my anon and public FB identities...

I guess this is my answer. Thanks.

FB it's like Wal-Mart...everyone hates it, but we are all there.

It was far too late in the blogging game to realize I should be anon...so everyone knows who I am...although the nice thing about that is that no one expects me to sugar coat anything or watch my potty mouth...
and yeah, FB is creepy like that

I'm so not into facebook. Now you just gave me another reason not to be.

I can just like you everywhere as long as you are always the same you wherever you go ... nothing worse than meeting someone and wondering who it is that actually lives in their screen ;)

It's so funny that you posted this, and trust me, I've learned so much through this year being a newbie. As a former TV Journalist, I was used to the public so when I started my blog, I wrote it for the general public, keeping my guard up, and not really knowing about the blogging community. I didn't read blogs prior to blogging.
So, I was thinking that public would would read it, etc, but what I have slowly learned through this experience is that really the only people who communicate with me are also bloggers. Bloggers are now the ones who give me gratification.

And very few of my real friends even care about my blog as well as the general public. I can put a link up to my blog on my real facebook page, and no one even comments. They skip right over it.

So, thank goodness for the bloggers out there or I would have no comments. I will like your page.
