Obviously with this blog and my rampant facebook status updates, I have no qualms about aligning myself with Generation Overshare. I mean, I do have *some* discretion, but there’s just a lot I’m comfortable with sharing. That’s just me.
This morning I made a pretty significant life move that had been put into motion several months ago. My first thought was to write a nice blog post about it (I still will do this, just at another time) and post the link to facebook with a simple announcement of my big news. By the time I finally got home, that inclination did a 180 and now I’m writing this post. It occurred to me that I want this news to spread naturally through the run-in’s in the laundry room and the water cooler conversations. I feel it’s uncouth for a certain sect of my friends and acquaintances to find out through something so cold and impersonal as facebook. Or even this blog. There are facial expressions and (hopefully) kind words I want to experience in person.
And, let face it:those in my inner and not-so-inner circle know already. By me telling them face-to-face.
