Facebook is an amazing invention. I was begrudgingly turned onto it by my ‘tween cousins who insisted that by joining I’d not only reconnect with the myriad of high school classmates I’d been distancing myself from since graduation, but “better” yet, I’d occupy hours of my life with a mindless addiction that involves little more than stalking former friends. Neither option appealed to me. But after mocking all other social networking sites and calling me, “The last loser on MySpace,” the ‘tweens convinced me it was time to grit my teeth, dig in my heels, and surrender to Facebook.
And wouldn’t you know, they were right! Facebook is SO much better than MySpace. My profile has proven a perfect platform to reintroduce myself to old friends and recruit new fans. I post recipes, videos, photos and daily notifications on where my foodie lifestyle is taking me. With a mere 144 friends, I haven’t exactly achieved legendary status just yet, but I’m steadily working my way toward Facebook fame. Just this week, a former classmate got in touch and asked to interview me for her blog, Paper Tiger. Give our conversation a read and check out her amazing online gallery displaying some of her most recent artistic endeavors. And please, friend request me if you haven’t already…I need to bump up my numbers!
