Straightening the factual lines.

It's not a new thing this gig at Mid Century Modern Moms. I've been there since January, I just didn't tell you guys about it, because I wasn't sure I'd be able to keep up the pace, and I'm not good at self-promotion - I've never been able to ask a boss for a raise, ever!

Just thought I'd post that here rather in the comments of my last post, 'cause you might not go back and read them to get my response.

I have to confess that the other thing that's kept me from this blog is Facebook. I sort of feel as though my occasional one line status updates almost feeds my need to share my life with the world. It's a little unsatisfactory though 'cause I have friends on there who are not really friends but who it would be awkward in real life if I didn't accept their Facebook friend request. The etiquette of the cyberage is no less tricky than the etiquette required in the 1800's! (And less clear, to boot!)

I think I'm going to be doing a bit more thinking here on my blog again to try and regain some of that elusive satisfaction. Heck, that's why I went to all the trouble of starting a new blog with new names 'n all. Let's see how I go.

Maisy - who loves her cyber friends.


  1. Yes, Facebook has certainly affected my need to write in my blog. The blog had been my regular connection to the outside world, especially after I more-or-less stopped posting to the board.

    With Facebook, I was able to keep in touch with my buddies, and my blogging frequency dropped dramatically. But FB really isn't conducive to introspection.

    I'm excited about NaNoWriMo -- and my new gig on 50-Something Moms -- to get me back into being more intentional about reflecting, shaping, guiding my life.

  2. Good thing your fan club will follow you wherever you go. :)

    Just had to give you some crap. It's my job. Cuz I said so.
