I just joined Facebook last week. I’m limiting myself on it as it is definitely a time vacuum. I still have a Myspace account that I set up when I was at the university. I couldn’t stand all the adds and stupid backgrounds that people would set up. I really hated going onto someone’s page and having some really bad song blare out of my computer. I’m sure people thought the same of my page. So I haven’t visited there much over the years.
Facebook is kind of cool and I’ve found several friends that I’ve lost touch with over the years. I think that is a good thing. I’ve alsways been real bad about staying in touch with old friends. I pretty much completely ignored my high school friends after I moved west. I got an email about my 20th reunion, but I pretty much ignored it. I mainly hope that facebook keeps me in touch with all my mtb friends and reconnects me with old mtb friends. I have no desire to get back in touch with any army friends…..if I ever really could call them friends to begin with.
I have a twitter account but I don’t know how to use it. It seems kind of pointless to me.
My blog gets regular viewers, but I don’t really care. I hope that I’m able to post some info every now and then that will be helpful to others…friends or otherwise. I like reading other people’s blogs as long as there isn’t too much data and data analyses present in the content. If I see a screen shot of someone’s power profile, I immediately go to someone else’s blog instead. It doesn’t mean that I never go to that person’s blog again, but I’d much rather look at cool pictures and hear inside stories about races, rides, and bike builds.
Anyway. I’m on facebook now.
