Happy New Year!

I hope everyone reading this will have a really good 2015!

 Unless someone reading this is a serial killer, or something like that.  In which case I hope you are caught quickly and with minimal collateral damage, and find yourself in prison in a country that will offer you suitable confinement and a reasonable degree of rehabilitation. :-D

I've just realised that I forgot my this blog's tenth birthday, which would have been 22nd December.   I'm glad I started it, and I hope it will last another 10 years.

I'm somewhat annoyed to discover that I made a new year's resolution last year to use Facebook less.  I think I did stick to that for a while, but have drifted back to it.  I don't think I get enough out of it for the time I spend idly scrolling through the many many updates and shares from people I mostly only know peripherally, and usually seem less interesting/thoughtprovoking than LJ -  and so I shall resolve this year once again to try to spend more time making things and generally Getting Things Done, and less time on the big F. (I suppose I could set up filters, but I'd really rather just avoid Facebook, which always tends to make me feel like I've eaten too many Pringles).

So far this year in Getting Things Done, I have made three festive graphics for Pp's Shop on the Borderlands.  I meant to make them in time for Christmas, but had too much work, but now they are ready for next year.



And now I'm going to make some tea and then see if I can get any further with this story in which Cottia, aged 73, and the great-grandson of the Tribune Placidus solve crimes in the Downs. I've written very little fiction this year, but I do like doing it -- so that would be a good thing to do instead of Facebook!

Happy New Year to you, bunn, and to philmophlegm, cats and dogs.

I like your Facebook / Pringles analogy, and should spend less time eating Facebook myself.

ETA: Nice graphics.

Happy New Year to you and the menagerie. :-)

I know exactly what you mean about Facebook - I really did intend to give up it up a couple of years ago, but commitments and people I like who only post there drag me back in every time. :-(

Yes, I can't give it up either - I have to have an account for work reasons and I don't want to completely lose touch with the people I am now only in contact with that way.

But I do feel it would be nice to limit my exposure to it. I know it's specifically designed to be addictive, but I find it surprising how 'addictive' doesn't overlap well with 'feels like a worthwhile way to spend time'.
