There is a quote by Rumi that sums up perfectly how I feel about social media right now.
“Out beyond the ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there.”
Instagram is fantastic. It’s creative, inspiring, thought provoking, and rarely gives me anxiety. I get so many great ideas and have so many good feelings courtesy of Instagram.
Facebook? Not so much. I can absolutely understand why people love it. In an odd sort of way, I’m confused about why I despise it so much. My voyeuristic tendencies started young when I watched the first episode of The Real World New York in 5th grade. I love watching people live their life. A weird idea for some, I get it. Nevertheless, I love it. I love learning new ways of doing things, seeing what people’s favorites are, what they have for dinner, all of it.
All of this say, after an unfortunate incident with our well meaning real estate agents announcing that we’d bought a house in Facebook (without our permission) we are bailing. Neither of us are into it, for many many reasons, but the main issue for us is the lack of control you have over your content there. You can be tagged, located, checked-in, etc. without your having any control over it. I’ve locked my Facebook down and still I deal with these issues.
So! You can find us here. Well, mostly me, although sharing Eric’s a my shenanigans is one of my favorite things to write about. Eric’s got a crazy cool blog HERE if you’re into vintage toys, collecting, painting, and general nerdom.
It’s such an exciting time for us right now. We are four years into an adventure that we started out of desperation and a feeling that we didn’t belong where we were. Our decision to rent our beautiful house that we loved, quit secure and well -paying jobs to move to a place we’d only been to once before and start a business has been the adventure of a lifetime. Bookmark this blog if you want to see what we’re up to. I love sharing and I want you to be a part of it.
