That is the question I've been asking myself the past couple of months.
Everything has a lifespan. A point in time when there's nothing more to be said.
I wondered if I'd reached that point with this blog.
So I signed up for Facebook a few days ago.
I know, I know...I've been anti FaceBook for so long but felt that I was really missing out on the experience that all my friends and family have long since embraced.
I still a newbie on it but so far I don't see it as a platform for expressing my thoughts the way that my blog does.
To be honest...It's kind of a yawn.
Facebook is short and sweet. A daily blip on what's going on with your peeps. Kind of a "high five" as you go through your day. Or a depressing note if someone decides to unleash their angst on all of their "friends".
Since I'm a meat and potatoes kinda girl, I think I need my blog to satisfy that part of me that needs to write creatively. I have a voice that FB just can't understand or translate.
Plus I like the thought of this blog being a journal of our life together. The story of the up's and downs and quirks of a man and woman who decided 27 years ago to walk the same path together.
Our story is not done yet. I bet there's still something interesting right around the corner.
So I am committed to continue the blog for another year.
New Year's is a favorite holiday of mine simply because I use it to evaluate where I'm at and where I'm heading. I evaluate the changes I'd like to make and formulate a gameplan to accomplish them.
So I've been considering cosmetic changes to the blog. You might see them over the next few days as I test them out.
Let me know if you like them. Or not. That's cool too.
* Just a shout out to anyone who might be getting the latest Blogger Error gwt.xml module error. I'd been getting these for about a week or so and managed to work my way around them. This morning I couldn't get into Blogger at all. After doing a bit of poking around I found that this is a current issue with anyone using Internet Explorer and it appears that Blogger is working on it.

I'm in Foxfire now to navigate in Blogger and that works fine.
