I don’t post very often, but there are some people I recently deleted because their posts drive me crazy. One friend posts pics of all the items she bought that day and gives us a synopsis of everything she bought, how much it costs normally and how much it cost after her coupons so she saved so much $$ and blah blah blah. Every. Freaking. Day. Why on earth do I want a daily picture of her grocery shopping?!

Then there are the mom posts…I’m sure I’ll post about my kids, but if you literally have thousands of pics of your one year old on FB and post about how he is doing with his swimming lessons and in his library group and how you’re just finishing his homemade baby food then finishing your homemade dinner and pie for you and your Darling Husband, and at a garage sale earlier you bought the one year old a racecar bed and are assembling a gigantic playscape in the backyard…omg it’s way too much – especially for a freaking baby! And that could be just like one or two days worth of posts. But I can’tdelete them…because they’re by my SIL. Sigh.

 

Okay, sorry, not the point of this post, maybe we need a spinoff lol. My last posts have been saying I got my haircut, complaining about how Darling Husband watches the same boring TV channel all the time, being excited we got our wedding pics in, and telling people to come see DH’s band and hang out with me when they were playing at a local club.

I usually post photos, I love to document our life through pictures.

I make status updates but not all that often. Usually if I’m starting something new (like currently I was posting about c25k and a 5k I am signing up for in March- and also how I discovered pinterest.com and am addicted!)

I post on a few people’s walls, but that’s really about it.

I can take it or leave it. Sometimes I check it everyday for a week, sometimes I don’t log on for that long or longer. Just depends on how sick of it I am. lol

I rarely post, but if something funny happens I will post it, usually it’s just lame stuff like, ‘home sick’ or ‘going away for the weekend’. My dog gets the most attention on my FB, I post pictures of him all the time.

Things I’ve seen/heard and recommend like bands, shows, movies, comedians.

News articles.

Random titbits… “hey guess what I’ve found out…” type things.

Things that are funny about my life… but nothing specific.

Don’t post as often as I used to though.

 I post pretty random things lol its all either funny, or just out of nowhere. i also post my cooking efforts from time to time since sometimes it ends up in disaster or ends up turning out really fantastic.

I don’t tend to post really personal things on facebook, I mainly use it to post links to fun sites I find, or helpful articles (usually holiday cooking related), and once in awhile I’ll post my weekend plans if I’m going somewhere fun. No drama posts, no cryptic passive aggressive messages, no photos of baby’s first poop. I think I generally steer clear of most things that people hate on facebook, but if someone hates seeing pictures of my child, well they can just delete me because my husband’s family lives far away and it’s easier to post on fb than email constantly.

I hide drama posts and people who constantly take pictures of their food. “Had an epic waffle at IHOP, here’s 3 pics of the half eaten waffle with a piece of bacon”

My husband and I cook a lot and experiment a lot with different cuisines so I have an album dedicated just to that. Besides that I tend to post pictures about big events, birthdays, holidays, etc.

Rarely just the day to day unless I’m really bored.

I rarely post statuses, only if something really exciting comes up or if I feel something is really important to share. I only post pictures like once a month (although I update my profile picture more frequently). I post on my friends walls sometimes but then I tend to inbox a bit more because I come from a really gossipy town/school and even though I have a small friends list I don’t want people reading my wall to wall all the time 😉

ETA: I have this one friend on FB that posts statuses about her marital problems! “having a really tough time with Dan because he works until 3 am four nights in a row and he never sees me or his daughter and I’m so tired of it and lonely…blah blah blah…” hahah

I’m not a huge status poster.  Lately (since August thanks Irene!) I tend to mention my basement flooding,  I’m sure that is exciting for all.  And I like to post the random stuff my dog chews b/c I think her taste is funny (wild turkey preferred to vodka)

I mostly just change my status every few days. Right now it’s a smiley face but a couple days ago it was a dig at Taylor Swift and Twilight before that. I try to post witty things or what’s going on in Darling Husband and my life. No passive-aggressive messages or rants on people. Those are annoying.

I am on FB a lot but I don’t post that much. Mostly updates like “fun day with the girls-wine time!” or “So glad it’s Friday!”. I do post A LOT of photos, but I DON’T post boring photos of my cat. That is a pet peeve of mine. (NO ONE loves your cat like you do! We don’t need an album just for your cat!)

I HATE the dramatic posts like “Off to the doctor today to find out whats wrong with me-so scared:(….” UGH! Those types of posts REALLY annoy me.I try not to create any drama or buy into other peoples drama. I will admit sometimes I am tempted to change my status to something like “UGH I dislike unreliable people” to get my point accross to one person, but I would be to embarrassed when people started posting the why, and who question so I don’t 🙂

I post things about my dogs and my husband and questions about pregnancy.  I wanted to post one this morning but figured people are probably sick about reading about my puppies so I’ll post my wannabe status message here this morning!

“I think it was very sweet that when I got up for the 3rd time to go to the bathroom, Mac (our little boy puppy) brought me his new monkey toy and set it down on my side of the bed!  Sweet little boy!”

Random things.  Nothing over the top.
