I feel like my blog readers deserve a bit of an update after all the blogging I did about my personal issues with Facebook and my month-long deactivation in April. If you are new to my blog or would just like to refresh yourself on what I’m talking about, you can read my posts here: … [Read more…]
I have been contemplating writing this post for about two weeks now, but I haven’t been able to get the thoughts out…figured I’d just go ahead and start rambling and hope that something makes sense.
