Unfortunately, I can't give it up completely because I believe that I will lose contact with almost all of the people I keep in contact with on there. I think that it's just a fact of life that without it, we would probably only keep in contact with a small circle of friends and relatives. Facebook makes everything easy.
On the flip side however, Facebook makes you lazy. I crossed to Facebook initially with it's clean white space. Myspace I found, was rapidly allowing users to completely cover their pages in colours, fonts, graphics and pictures, therefore burning out the retinas of anyone who visited their page. This made keeping in contact difficult for me, as viewing pages left me with a blinding migraine each time. Now I feel a addiction coming on stronger and realised that it sits open while I study. Talk about distraction.
This site is generally my own version of my Facebook page - without the hoards of friend requests, group requests, quiz requests and the birthday reminder (which, admit it, you'd be lost without it). I thought I would create 'Being Meags' after experiencing the internal conflict of wanting to post completely random things on my other website's blog (www.meaganhungerford.com) and found it not entirely appropriate to do so.
So, that is mostly "design" and this will be mostly "me". Honestly, I am completely random so this could mean anything from a review of a movie, book or show to whatever happened to pop into my head on any particular day. I tend to curve the craziness with Facebook as I assume some of my 'friends' (ex-teachers, friends of my parents, obscure relatives) don't want to hear about it.
So... welcome! Hopefully I'll have photos posted up in a couple of days and write a bit more.
