I’m blogging again…

All the post Trump election crap in my Facebook “news” feed finally motivated me to spend less time there (just long enough to post links to my blog and look in the 2-3 groups I care about) and start writing again. Trying to filter it all out is a lost cause and nobody has built a “facebook without politics”, so here we are.

Yeah, it never really dawned on me but facebook is really designed for reading and not writing. So I do what most people do there and spend most of my time reading and scrolling and watching cat videos.

But since I seem to see political crap everywhere I look (apparently people have forgotten how to be people), I’m just going to go back to blogging where I can write on my platform and not have to spend time reading past all the stuff I don’t care to see anyway.

Sounds almost like freedom, doesn’t it?

Now I just need to figure out what to write about… Flying? Space computers? Food? Technology? Cats? Who knows.

    Thanks a ton for saying this.

    My Twitter feed has become unbearable this last month or so.

  3. Welcome back to the non-Facebook world. Ease into gently with food and cats. Nothing wrong with that.

    Totally can relate. I can’t stand being on Facebook for long periods of time or even reguarly. I’ll just read something that’s poltical and it’ll piss me off.
