I guess it's time to do a blog post because the Universe has spoken. Or at least two people in the universe anyway. Within two days I've had two lovely, sophisticated ladies with superior literary tastes--or so I presume--ask me to continue my blogging since I haven't posted for almost a year! You may roll your eyes and think "Big deal!" but considering no one mentioned missing my blog before and then suddenly two people in two days--unsolicited, mind you--ask me to keep writing, well I consider that a Sign. [Cynics insert your snide "Sign of" joke here.]
So why have I been neglecting my blog? You might think I've been much too busy traveling, socializing, and volunteering at community events...but no, it's more like "I don't think anyone would be interested in a blog post about Facebook games."
Yes, I spend time on Facebook, but I'm not one of those who post play-by-play events of my day-to-day life. Not sure people would "Like" a photo of my new Spin Mop.
Nope, I'm there to play Bejeweled Blitz and DoubleDown slots. I do occasionally share what I consider helpful links to health articles or give unsolicited advice I feel may be helpful, but these don't get much reaction from my so-called Friends. In fact, if there was a "Don't Give a Rip" button, most of them would probably click it! [Wow, someone call Mark Zuckerberg, about this new button idea!]
Which brings me to my latest Facebook status post which regarded how I cured my jewelry buying addiction. Well ok, I admit a big part of my cure was the escalating price of gold, but one day while coveting a bracelet on QVC.com, I had what seemed to be a silly idea. I right-clicked and saved the photo. Hmmm! I now "owned" the bracelet and could look at it anytime I wanted to. Cool! I just saved $489! I love saving money! I now have about a dozen jpg files in my Jewelry Folder. Not a lot, just the most special jewelry that I really enjoy looking at. I sometimes lose interest in a piece so I just delete the file. Imagine if I had spent $489 on it! I don't have to worry about them getting lost or stolen either. The best part is that as crazy as it sounds, it really does help curb my jewelry appetite.
So next I'm going to collect pastry and ice cream photos.
