When I first started on FB, it wasn't so bad. I chatted with a few people I didn't know and used it sort of like Myspace. That is to say I put up a
Then I started noticing posts about cows and chickens and land expansions. FB had games, anyone that truly knows me, knows that I am a gamer. Video games, arcade games, computer games...I love them all. I asked my FB friends which game should I play and ended up with Farmville. Maybe you've heard of it? Or perhaps you have heard people make fun of it? Basically you build a farm and keep it up. Crops wither, animals need tending, trees need harvesting. All kinds of things that keep you coming back and back and back. After adding that game, I added a few more and a few more...and the thing is the games never end and you really don't win anything! So here I was putting the baby to sleep and running to check my farm, my cafe, my pet, my mafia and a few other things. All of it? Too time consuming.
So earlier this week I ranted to Hubby about it, saying I need to write more and to write better. The only way to get better at writing? Is to write often and so I made the decision that the games had to go. I lamented a few of the games because I had reached high levels and lots of "coinage" but I knew the only way to do it was cold turkey. I went in and just deleted application after application. I kept my farm and my cafe but now I only accept the gifts I have received and return them and move on. Now, I have no excuse to not write.
