I’ve just received a friend request on Facebook from my dad – how weird is that? He’s 70 but since my mum died he has discovered a new lease of life, he joined the gym, bought a laptop and an Ipod and now this! I’m not sure how I feel about having him be able to see all my updates and the messages I get from my friends….
As my family (other than Mr Frugal) and friends don’t know about my blog yet I have two separate Facebook accounts, one personal and one blog page so it’s my personal account that he has added. I don’t think he’s ready to see me as a grown up and not his little girl just yet so I might just ignore his request for now and plead ignorance.
On the subject of anonymity, I don’t really know how I feel about my family and friends knowing about my blog, it just seems really personal to me and I don’t want to share it. I show pictures of the kids but I don’t use any real names or anything but lately I’ve been starting to wonder whether I should just use their real names rather than Miss and Master Frugal. Is there a point hiding their first names when I show their photos? I’m not so sure anymore. Just using our first names wouldn’t mean that I wasn’t anonymous would it?
I’ll have a think but someday soon there may be some introductions to be had
While I’m rambling on about Facebook, if you want to add me as a friend you can click here or you can click on the box underneath my blog roll to the right of this post. I apologise to those of you who aren’t fans of Facebook for the blabbering on of this post.
