Because of the nature of my job, I spend a lot of time on social media and can easily get sucked into it. I try, very hard, to watch what I say online as you don't know who is reading it and how it might affect others. However, social media is a tricky thing as everything is written/typed and sarcasm, anger, happiness, etc. cannot always be easily interpreted. A few weeks ago I put a comment on a Facebook status that was meant to strike up conversation and not controversy, but instead I got a nasty little email from the person basically, in a word, bitching me out for everything I've ever written. What was said was very hurtful and kinda shook me. I needed a break from social media.
I had planned to write every day in September. I had/have lots to talk about. I needed a little break and I think I will continue to kinda stay away from Facebook and Twitter (although I love me some Instagram), but I love my blog. I love to write about my adventures and my little peanut. So, I'm back. And I have lots to write about. Stay tuned for race reports (I'm running 4 races in September!!!), something I'm calling Operation: BAMF, a little injury I'm nursing, and pictures and stories from our vacation.
