Well friends, it’s happening. I’m saying goodbye to the great big world of Facebook–effective Monday, September 8th.
Facebook has been great to me for so many years. I’ve met a few of my favorite people in the world. It’s helped me to grow my business and given me amazing exposure. I’ve kept connected with people I otherwise would have lost touch with. Facebook has served a good purpose.
I’m just going to keep this short and sweet. I’m saying farewell to Facebook (both business & personal) because I’ve decided I want to be more present in my everyday life. I want invest my time and energy into the relationships I hold so dear. And I want to spend the time I use for social media marketing and redirect that into client friendships.
I’ve gone round and round in my head if leaving Facebook will hurt my business. And my best answer is this… It might. But staying on Facebook will hurt more. I’m coming to the end of the busiest season I’ve ever had. And for that I am thankful. But I’ve had to learn a lot about balance. And finding balance has meant prioritizing. Prioritizing means making a change. Alas, here we are.
While I’m jumping ship on Facebook, I’m not going completely off the radar, and I would love to stay connected with you through Instagram, and here on my blog. And if you are looking for ways to get in touch, you can always email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or through the contact form on my website.
Lastly, I just want to take a moment to thank all of you for your incredible support. I cannot even begin to express the overwhelming gratitude I feel toward every kind word ever given. Even the thumbs up and page ‘Likes’ have brought joy and encouragement. And for those who have taken a chance on me and given me your business. I owe it all to you! This isn’t goodbye, it’s just goodbye, Facebook. And I hope I’ll still be seeing you around!
Here’s to the turning of seasons. It’s been a good one, but I’m ready for change. I’m dreaming of cable knit sweaters, mugs of steaming coffee, good books, and great company. A little less screen time, and a lot more face time. Oh, and chocolate. Always, chocolate. Who’s with me?
Onward and upward.
To bigger and better.
And sometimes bigger really means smaller.
And better isn’t necessarily more.
