No Facebook February II

Welcome to February friends!  And, goodbye to Facebook!

For the second year in a row, I'm celebrating NO FACEBOOK FEBRUARY

I don't have super deep reasons for this decision.  I think it is just a good practice to take a break from mindless stalking & comparing every once in a while.  (Especially as a I continue to grow bigger, get more pimples, and lose more hair!)

There will be one change from last year:  Instead of giving my mom access to my FB during my month off, I had Jeff change my password last night so that neither of us can access it until March.  (Sorry Mom!  I'm making a detox decision for you too... Plus, you always have dad's account.)  I'm a little sad that I will probably miss the birth of a few babies that I've been "following" with weekly pregnancy updates.  But otherwise, I'm certain I'll survive.  (Trust me, I did it once and lived to tell about it.  And, to my knowledge, I didn't lose any friends or miss out on any life shattering news.) Who knows, maybe I'll even get some things crossed off my 30 Before 30 List with all this extra time on my hands.

**NOTE**If you are having a party, will you please just send me a email or text message invite the old fashion way?  Jeff is totally unreliable to check his own account, so that won't do.  Thanks.

So... Anyone want to join me in this challenge? Come on' it'll be fun!  Leave a comment and let me know if you are going to attempt the impossible in the next 28 days. 

I even made a little button you can post on your sidebar to tell your blog readers:

I got a little lazy with this one.  Since there is no 'grab code' just install as a Photo Gadget as your sidebar and link to http://www.emyselfandi.com/.  (If you don't mind.)  You can also use this image as your FB profile picture for the month if you want - that's what I did!

Game on!


  1. I love your no facebook february! I deactivated mine 2 weeks ago and it has been liberating! I was on it WAY too much so it's nice to have a break! It just stinks to miss out on things that are always posted on FB!

  2. Good for you! I hardly ever go on Fb these days and it is SO nice. The main reason I log on is if someone sends me a message and I feel rude not replying. Staying off Fb frees up time and keeps me from the stalking/comparison that is the dark side of Fb.

  3. I could never do this so good for you I know I have an addiction to fb I am on it all the time

  4. sorry, I'm too addicted to Facebook there's no way I could give it up for a month!

  5. Iam really mad at you, E.... what is your problem????

  6. J/K, E!!! i hope i can stand it!!!

  7. I'm new to your blog and LOVE this idea! I need to do the same but not prepared because I am in Korea and my family and friends are in the states. FB is my method of staying in touch also a method of stress sometimes. I'm thinking about doing a no Facebook challenge soon though, after I give my important people a heads up that I DO in fact have a phone!! I'm new to blogging and pages like yours make me excited about my new adventure. Now I'm off to check out the Willow House ad.-Kristal http://kristalsetfamm.blogspot.com/


Your comments are what makes this thing fun! I LOVE to hear from you and do my best to respond to everyone! THANK YOU!
