I was going to write about my dog, Bella, but instead just spent the last several hours cleaning up my personal Facebook page. And I’m nowhere close to being done. I fell into the social media rabbit hole.
When I started my blog just over a year ago, I had about 200 Facebook friends. And I thought that was a lot.
Today I have over 700, and I don’t know most of them.
Since I’ve joined several groups, I get a lot of friend requests. Most are from very nice women who are also in these groups, so I accepted their requests and before I knew it, I have more friends I don’t know than friends I do.
Another friend I met through a group told me she sorted out the mess by creating two different Facebook pages, so I decided to do that today. And I had no idea just what I chore this was going to be.
I am Loretta Sayers Gavin on my Facebook page I’ve had since 2009. That is my personal page where my family and old friends from High School and my very close friends are.
I created a new one for Loretta Sayers for all of my social media groups and virtual friends. So, just in case you are wondering, no I am not getting a divorce.
John and I are doing great – and I’ll share more on that later.
It wasn’t too hard moving all of my groups over to the new Loretta Sayers page, but oh man, I had absolutely NO idea just how many pages I was following. I spent hours unfollowing about 500. And I’m not done.
I was following pages that I never remember even seeing before. Not sure how this happened, but they were all there. I’m slowing whittling them down to the actual ones I want to follow.
And then I’ll transfer them to my new public page, Loretta Sayers.
Is this confusing?
Yes, yes it is. But hopefully I get it all sorted out and I can get back to actually writing. I have a wonderful story to write about my dog, Bella. My experience with carcinoma is in queue and I’ve got some fun things to share about me and John.
But for now, my arm is so tired from holding it at my laptop hitting “unfollow” and I am ready to just relax and call it a day.
