I've been re-reading The Shipping News and I am thinking in newspaper titles, hence the title of this post.
I blog, I'm on Ravelry and have even logged 143 Tweets. I do not however have a Facebook page … my sisters have encouraged me, saying things like, "so and so was asking about you… you should get on Facebook." Seriously, I have kept in touch with most everyone I want to, and don't relish the idea of reconnecting with people I never really connected with in the first place. That said, I have reconnected with old friends through this blog, which is a wonderful benefit, if not the ultimate goal. Besides, I once heard one of my younger co-workers say, "It's so weird to hear old people talking about Facebook."
I decided then and there that if I was too old to wear a mini skirt… I'm too old for Facebook. I realize as I write this that I may soon hear the boos & hisses of a few real-life friends.
