I enjoy Facebook----and with a few exceptions, my own peacocking is usually limited to a photo of a dinner I cooked or something equally mundane. I did upload photos of a home addition I'm having done (that's turning into an eight month project instead of the eight weeks the contractor promised----don't even get me started). But I viewed that as being less about bragging and more about showing what's going on in my life and also showing the source of some anxiety I was/am having with the contractor building it. Some people take photos when they're out eating at a fancy restaurant---and I answer with photos of me cooking stew in a crock pot, almost as a protest----my child and I eating home on a Saturday night while they're out on the town. But I find that blogs like this one are better in a lot of ways----because the discussions often are more in depth and interesting than anything on Facebook. Also, here----I find that I'm more interested in what others have to say than I am about saying something myself. I love reading this as much or more than I like writing. On Facebook----I think most of us are far more interested in what we ourselves have to say than in what our "Facebook friends" are saying.
