BUSTED OUT

I busted out.  Escaped the crazy chains of social networking.

Yeah, me, the social networking advocate. 

I recently realized there can be too much of a good thing.  I was over-connected and that was negatively adding to my already full and often stressful days.  I felt like I was suffocating from information overload. 

So...

I deleted my Facebook account.
I deleted my Google + account that I opened thinking it would replace FB. 
I deleted my Twitter account. 

But, before you wonder if I have unplugged everything and am going to go live in a cave somewhere, I assure you I am still connected.  I have a smartphone and I still have my email accounts and my Blog (this one--that seems to be neglected lately)

I've just taken a step back -- to breathe and live a little more, with less technology.

I think I'm going to like it.

Good for you! It took me forever to even get on FB, and at first I hated it. Now I'm more at peace with it, because it's been a great way to be more in touch with some of my extended family, but I try to keep my checking it at a minimum.

I should do the same...sigh. Stupid FB.

I agree, it is a great way to keep up with out of state family and friends and I may go back on, but for now, this break is good for me. :-)
