I’ve decided to try facebook again, though with a different approach this time. I’ve been thinking about this for a while. James uses it as an outpost online, a way to have a presence without getting sucked into the matrix too deeply. I began to wonder if I could do the same thing. As I stated way back when in May when I first started this blog, one of the main challenges for me with facebook was around maintaining/finding connections without having them exist only on facebook. I will limit my own use (like only going on once a day and maybe not updating my status all the time:)). I will link my blog to the profile, as a way to connect the profile to my main internet outlet. If it doesn’t work, and I find myself on more and more, then I will have James reset my password or deactivate it for a while.
I'd like to think there is a middle ground between no account and vein slapping junkie that I can manage, because it seems like many other people can, and I'd like to think I can too. We'll see how it goes.
