Too Much Social Media! Is There Such A Thing?

I loved the simpler days when there was no social media. That being said, I do take advantage of of it now. This blog is important for me. If I ever get to the point where I believe that no one is learning anything from me, I will take it down pretty quickly. But as long as just a few people learn from it and I can save it for my family members, I will continue blogging.

Now are there drawbacks when you are a blogger. Yes, the morons who post threats and ridiculous stupid comments. I have had one person on here for months that continues to do it. Obviously that person is a reader or she or he wouldn’t come here. I have only seen one that was a threat to me from this person. Of course, he or she posts anonymously. 

Meanwhile, I have a reader who is helping me out sifting through the anonymous comments and weeding out all of the spam. I don’t even see them anymore because she deletes them. Thank you to Ann. 

I also frequent You Tube but only to learn from other people especially when it comes to fixing things around our home. If Hubby or I don’t know something, we will search for a solution and someone always seems to have put up a video about it. This has saved us many, many dollars.  

That being said, I have recently decided that Facebook is a huge time waster. I have never bothered with Twitter. So I have taken down all my posts on Facebook which were only a couple, deleted every one and have only kept immediate family for messenger, and I only go to two groups that help me out. One is a private planner group and one is my market couponing group.  

You know that Facebook and Twitter are time wasters when it gets to the point that you can’t get anything done in the morning until you look at it. That is not for me. I keep busy all day with things that need to be done around our home and things that help our financial situation. Instead of looking at social media when I get up, I get ready for my day and get all of the things in my planner done early so that I can run errands when they are done. I prep our dinner so it is easy to throw it together later. 

This is a page from my weekend. You can see that even though I don’t do as much on the weekends(days of rest), there are things that are scheduled and get done. This is how I keep my household very clean and running very smoothly. When these things are done, then it is time to watch football or movies or just read. 

So will I miss Facebook? I doubt it. I am too busy making our life better. 

All of this being said, 99.9% of my readers and commenters are wonderful people many of whom I have cemented friendships with over the 13 years that I have been blogging. They learn from me and I learn from them. I will continue to post for you for as long as I am able. I am planning out a wonderful year of blog posts for 2021. Hubby and I have been working on a major goal for our family the past few years and we will most likely reach our goal in 2021. So it will be a great year!

Thank you so very much for taking the time to blog. I always look forward to your posts. If I had one blog to keep reading, it would be yours. Hope you have a wonderful day.

Hi AD, this is Chris. I don't do a lot of social media except read blogs and Facebook. I like Facebook since we live away from our families, and I can keep up with things like the cute baby pictures my niece posted today. But you are right, it can be a time suck. Our granddaughter likes to watch little kid videos on You Tube sometimes when she comes to visit

How exciting! I can't wait to see what you have been planning. I also am rarely on FB only to check in with 1 group I belong to and have maybe 12 "friends"

I'm sorry to hear about the mean comments you have to sift through. I love your blog and respond if I have something to add. I would hate to see you give it up. Try not to let the mean people get to you. They obviously do not have a great life.

How horrible that you have been threatened!

I don't twitter, or instagram. I'm on FB for a few groups (cooking & quilting) but mostly for church, friends & family.
I do blog a bit but waffle between wanting to write and the worry of sharing too much.
That being said, I love newsy blogs like yours. 🙂
