I love Facebook. There, I said it. I know that not everyone likes it; it’s a time-waster, it’s an invasion of privacy…I’ve heard all those things. But despite that, I love it. It connects me with friends all over the world in a way that snail mail was never able to, and I get a lot of fun out of it. I don’t post photos of my dinner (often), or share deep and meaningful messages from other websites, but I use it often to comment on what’s happening in my life. I was a slow starter, but now I am a real fan.
But after about four years on Facebook, I’ve decided it’s time to split my professional and personal lives. I do believe that personal things should be private, so I have always refused friend requests from people I don’t know personally. Then I learned how to use the “public” and “friends only” post selection, and have a few “subscribers” who see only those public posts. But now, I need a more professional place for my work-related posts, so I’ve created a new page called Lee Mylne – Travel Journalist.
So if you’re a follower of this blog, and also on Facebook, perhaps you’d like to “like” that page too. You’ll find more about my travels and my work and my thoughts about journalism, travel writing and travel in general…in a different form to what you read here.
I’m pretty proud of this whale-tail shot, so I’ve used it as the header for my Facebook page. Hope to see you there, as well as here!
