Yes, that is why I love Instagram. So easy to use on the go! Maria
I think I began reading blogs in 2005! My blog is still alive, but barely. Every time I think of closing it down for good, I feel a little bit sad so it stays (even though I have turned into drafts almost all of my early entries, just so that I could save all the comments and interactions from those early years). I still like to read a hand-full of blogs, mostly craft blogs; there is just not enough time in the day to keep up anymore. But I do also like Instagram (I have mine in private mode with only about 70-80 contacts as I find it easier to keep up with everyone, both visiting and responding to comments) and Twitter/Flickr (although I rarely go there these days; again, lack of time, but I still like to check in once in a while). I feel the same way you do about Facebook. I love the way you describe it: "a live classified ads section that waits for you to post then attacks". So totally funny and true!
I agree, balance is needed always. And if it wasn't for the bad things, how on earth could we enjoy SO MUCH all the good? I enjoyed reading your lists and specially your epiphany in the end!
And now I'm adding Vancouver to my bucket list! :)
My good things of the day: 1. Today I found a new coffee shop I love! And discovered that it is actually pretty close to where I work, so that means I'll be planning little escapes to it whenever I can ;) 2. And if that wasn't enough, I received in the mail my new tickets for the current Opera season! I am now eagerly anticipating the new group of Operas ahead which include two of my all-time favorite Operas and two I have never seen before! Pretty stoked.
