I am not sure why I didn't do it sooner. I guess it was just because I didn't know much about it and figured it was juvenile (I know, why would that stop me). Someone suggested that I do one and I have been getting invites from people to start one so I looked into it and I took the plunge.
I looked into it more out of curiosity than anything else but as I got into it, I realized that I am the only person on the face of the planet who did not already have one. Finding people is incredibly easy. I found people from my graduating class in high school and long lost friends from the military. It is a great way to stay connected with people no matter where they are.
I am still new to it so I am sure there is plenty more that I can do with it but for now I am enjoying getting updates from people I have not heard from in awhile or keeping up with people I see regularly but don't get into deep conversations.
I get a kick out of some of the pictures people use (mine included). I meant for mine to be funny but some people try to be mysterious or sexy or just plain stupid. I love it.
My point: Don't let ignorance be the reason you don't try something. I took the time to learn about something and actually ended up liking it. I didn't just assume I wouldn't like it and let that be a reason I didn't try it.
Eventually I will probably move my blog to my facebook so you better become my friend if you want to keep reading this amazing stuff...
