So...

I haven't posted in a while.

Okay. Like a real long time.

Life kind of got crazy lately. Some expected. Some not.

An awesome wedding. An injured pastor. A death. A birth. Among other things and the wonderfully full life I get to lead.

And a really interesting thing happened...I slacked off of all the social media I use. I stopped updating my Facebook status. I quit blogging.

And it makes me wonder, how helpful is the online community if it's the first thing I chuck when life gets crazy. And interestingly enough, during this time I sought out face to face relationships more than normal.

So are we just fooling ourselves with social media?

Let me know your thoughts. Peace.

I don't think that we should use our "social networking" as substitutes to real friends. There are many benefits to face to face conversations. I think sometimes we get out of the serious conversations that should be carried out in person on the internet. This is sad. We are afraid of somebody else seeing our reactions.
