I found Facebook to be a tremendous time drain, and I most certainly do not regret deleting my account last November. The friendships I have developed through this blog and through e-mail have been far more meaningful than the mass interactions I had on Facebook.
However, from conversations with other bloggers, I have realized that Facebook could possibly be a useful tool in expanding this community. I would like to try using it, not as a replacement for the one-on-one communication that I enjoy through e-mail, but as an extended way to share my message and be a part of a community.
For that reason, Journey to Ithaca now has a Facebook page. Feel free to “like” it, and share it with your friends, who may not have been here before. I will be sharing my posts here, as well as posts from other blogs.
I will not maintain a personal account. I have signed up for Facebook under a pseudonym, because I prefer the e-mail interactions.
