I have finally crossed over. It has taken me a long time – but I am now a semi – active Face Booker (Bookie? Bookette?). I believe I set up my account about a year ago. And by that I mean I created a log in. I never went back to it and had pretty much forgot what my password was anyway.
Yesterday, my friend Kari sent an invite to a friend on Facebook. Well of course I wanted to be her friend! And if I didn’t accept her -was that like a rejection? So I went on, wrestled around in coming up with my password, and logged on…. to find…..
about 20 people waiting to be accepted as my friend.
And they were my friends, so I went a little click happy accepting all of them. And as the night went on, I started receiving emails…” ________ has acccepted your friend invitation, ___________ wants to add you as a friend, _____________ wrote on your wall….”

So here I am. Trying to create profiles, entering pictures, updating friendships, searching for classmates, sharing “what I am doing”, looking up other people, and yes – even writing on walls.
“Sigh.” So we will see how this goes. In the meantime, you can check out my next step of madness here: Sheila’s Facebook Attempt
