Curing Mental Diarrhea On My FB Newsfeed

calm

Way back yonder, when I first joined Facebook, it was after having already experienced the anonymous stupidity of MySpace, the ridiculous adult fantasy world of AoL, and the limitations of CompuServe and Prodigy. (Yes, I know I’m dating myself here, but I did warn you I was no spring chicken LOL.)

Anyway, I joined FB with the specific intent of escaping those environments for one designed specifically for connecting with people who I’d lost track of, and for staying connected to friends and family who were no longer within hugging distance. Over time, however, it became the place I played all sorts of highly additive games, marketed various creations and projects, and wasted countless hours posting/sharing nonsense. It became my default place to find/do/engage with anyone and anything.

Now, that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I enjoyed it then, still do, and don’t plan on abandoning its blue and white halls any time soon. But, it is indeed one of the issues that lead up to my most recent social media dilemma – my now completely useless Newsfeed. Read the rest of this entry

So, I’ve decided to start a sanity blog…

“What is a sanity blog?”, you ask. Simply put, it’s a place for me to think out loud about my life, my ambitions, my successes, my failures, and maybe get some feedback from the world at large. It is a tool for connecting with ideas and people beyond my little bubble, in the hopes of expanding my horizons and stretching some creative muscles. It’s a nonspecific, free flow narrative of my journey on this big blue rock.

I warn you, my narrative may bore you. But it may also make you laugh, or cry, and maybe make you think. If nothing else, I hope it entertains you as much as it does me, because, believe me, life in Casa del Wacko can be downright crazy at times.

Peace out til the next post….
