So about a year ago I deleted a ton of Facebook friends on my personal page. Amelia was starting school and I wanted to have some privacy for her and her new school friends. It seemed like a good idea and I deleted everyone I hadn’t met face to face.

But what I didn’t realize is that if you are on Facebook it’s really hard to be on it halfway. First, it was hard to delete everyone. I missed some people that I don’t know in my day to day life. When I realized this I felt bad deleting some of the other people.

Also, people kept finding me and friend requesting me so I felt horrible saying no and sometimes accepted them… even people I hadn’t met in life which went against my original rule of “only people I have met”.

The other reason I don’t like what I did is that I am not blogging as much as I used to so people I have grown close to over the years don’t get to see as many pictures of Amelia. The mean people that I wanted to protect myself and my daughter from are still able to say mean things even after I deleted them so basically my whole plan was worthless.

So if you miss being my Facebook friend feel free to request me again. I will accept. Sorry for deleting you.

    I think your settings don’t allow for friend requests

    This has actually made my night. I’ve missed having you as my friend on facebook, and I have been so behind on everything because I have been soooo busy with life. lol. I only get to check facebook on my lunch break and if i’m lucky, my emails like tonight when I have 5 mins spare. I have missed seeing photos of Amelia and Freckles and of course you. Having you as a friend on facebook, made me feel like that I actually knew you in real life lol,…weird I know 🙂

    it’s normal to want to protect your family and friends, so I understood that you remove me from your facebook friends. I can not blame you for this: -) In addition, living in France and you in NY, it would be difficult to meet in life. I am always happy to follow your blog, twitter and instagram (besides you still have the kindness to answer me) You have taken important decisions this year and I’m happy for you. I wish you much happiness in the coming years.
