My friend, MiQL, posted a link to Numair Faraz's webpage.
Numair Faraz writes "I am too busy living my life to maintain a public identity, so email me if you want to discuss something ... Life is pretty awesome when you live it outside. Get off Facebook, get rid of your TV, and go be interesting." Numair goes on for a couple paragraphs about not putting your life online but instead living it. His perspective is a good one, but is it too far to one side?
I started blogging over ten years ago because it was a way for me to share my life with others. I never stopped living life. I never let blogging be the focus. Life has always been my focus and blogging/social media has allowed me to connect to others. In fact, I started blogging as a way to keep my friends in other cities updated on my life. (It was more efficient than email.)
Then through blogging I made a whole bunch of new friends in other cities that never would have been possible without the internet. I'm so thankful for social media and the way it connects me to others.
I think it's possible to live your life and share it. Like most things, the key is definitely balance.

Mac had minor surgery yesterday where he had a cyst removed from his head. The vet didn't even put him to sleep - just morphine & local painkiller to relax him. He was pretty out of it last night and even cried a little bit. But today he's pretty much his normal self. He seems clumsier than usual but I think it just has to do with the cone. He doesn't realize it sticks out as far as it does. Poor little conehead.
