So today I have been messing around on the site. I’ve been checking out new formats and new theme placements for the blog. I feel like the current image isn’t really doing any of this justice. I’m hoping by next week, or at least before the month ends, I will have updated this bland looking page into something that looks more interesting.
Another thing I’ve been thinking about for the longest time is deleting my Facebook. I mean when I really think about it, what good is a Facebook? To post what I’m doing to people who don’t really care too much and only look at the news-feed when their bored? To get people jealous, or be jealous, of certain people talking to other people?
I went dark from Facebook for about half a year before. To be exact, it was about a year ago I did this. It was pretty awesome to be honest. I didn’t have to worry about always being on my phone. I didn’t worry about taking pictures to post for others to look at for a few seconds. I just kept photo’s to myself to show others who would actually care about it instead of hitting a ‘like’ button because they, for some odd reason, like a photo just to show they saw it.
Really, I think Facebook is only for a very few things. Pictures, pictures, relationship statuses, ignorance to be spread online, and pictures. Some people claim its to keep in contact with certain people, but getting a number is pretty easy as well.
My sweetheart told me I shouldn’t delete my Facebook. I wouldn’t know why she would say that but the reason she gave me was to have it for a good social network system for this blog. I like to sometimes keep my personal Facebook separate from what I like to enjoy because I don’t like to have the two worlds collide. She already knows what I look like, I am already her’s, and everyone that really matters knows that we are together (and usually the girls that don’t know get mad when I tell them I’m committed and say no to them. Ha ha ha). But in the past Facebook is really the ultimate thing that ruins relationships. At least for me it has…
I’ve always had some poor excuse of a girlfriend, now ex girlfriends, who used Facebook to seek other people to be with whenever they were upset with me. A lot of them had secret conversations behind my back and what not. I mean I respect everyone’s privacy, but when someone, like their friends, tells me that one day they saw my ex’s Facebook messenger open and saw that she was talking to other guys in a not so ‘they’re just a friend’ way… It was over before it even started. I mean I trust myself to know who to be friends with, who to talk to, and am always considerate of what the person I’m dating will think, but good lord some of the people I’ve been with are just really good at hiding something.
But back on topic…
I was sitting on the thought of making a Facebook page for this blog. I mean statuses are really just small statements of what I’m feeling or doing and it’s pretty much what I already do on here. A little bit more in depth of course, but practically the same. But where to begin?
I would need a cover page, profile pick, links, and a whole lot of other things that I don’t even know yet. Add a link to the blog to be directed to the Facebook page then add a link to the Facebook page to take it back to the blog. I would probably slowly start slipping away from my personal page and delete it all together to focus on the blog and the Facebook page.
I think after getting all of the stress away from my family’s issues I’ve been able to think more clearly about what I should do next. I think getting more into this is one of the first things on the agenda. Well… and figuring out what dinner dishes to make for my sweetheart on our dinner dates (If anyone knows good vegetarian recipes PLEASE let me know! Comment below or email me!).
But I really do think it is time to start taking all this to the next level. I also thought about maybe doing nice little short story segments on a different page and doing one a month. I’m not too sure about that but there is nothing wrong with going out of your comfort zone to expand your creativity, right? And if it doesn’t work at least I tried.
So the future plan is to revamp this page, maybe start a Facebook page, possibly delete my personal page, love my lady (all day, every day), and to finally start getting more serious about the important things in life that make me truly happy.
If you guys could give me some good tips, advice, personal experiences, thoughts, and good vegetarian recipes (seriously…) let me know in the comment section or email me.
