I quit Facebook.
I didn’t hit the “close account” button but for this year, I made a vow to myself not to update my Facebook page.
Last year I put so much of myself out there that when strangers started liking some personal pictures (of my little man), I went into total freak-mode and completely locked down all my pictures and then altogether decided to stop updating the world about my life on Facebook.
Let’s face it, who cares if while shopping in Kroger I came across the most delicious pint of ice cream?
Who cares if while at the post office, I happened to overhear a conversation between the clerk and a teenager who has absolutely no idea what stamps are?
No one cares about those things but me.
No one has to hear about them but my guy, and my real life friends and maybe my mom.
So, I quit Facebook.
I still have my account because I need it for work and I like to keep up with a handful of groups and occasionally chat with a few friends I’ve made along the way.
That’s the extent of my Facebook presence – and honestly, I’ve never felt better.
Now if only I could figure out a way to cut ties with twitter, that is my real weakness!
Another one of my weaknesses is a really dope festival – and no one does dope festivals like Essence Magazine.
Let me tell you something, if you have never been to the ESSENCE Festival, you are missing out big time because every single year they do it big and just when you think they can’t outdo themselves, they go and do it again but even bigger the next year.And now you too can get in on the action via the 2015 New Orleans & Louisiana Essence Festival Presented by Coca-Cola® Sweepstakes!
