Why I fasted Facebook but never Quit it


Yes I had a facebook low point last month.  I wrote a slightly rantly post and I fasted facebook for the weekend and I felt the benefits.  But just because I know I need to slow down in my use and schedule regular breaks from it all doesn’t mean I am going to quit it altogether.

Everytime I think about how awful social media can be, I am then reminded of the relationships I am able to have through it that would be impossible without!

The mum’s who connect to my blog through facebook and comment and share – love you guys!

The friends from uni who live far away but are able to encourage me via facebook

The family who I don’t get to see most years but I can share photos of my boys with

The neighbours I have gotten to know and meet through our new residents facebook group

The ladies who I share bible journalling inspiration with from across the world.


The list could go on and on, but I know that without facebook non of that would be possible, and my life would be less rich.  What do you love about facebook?

    Love being able to stay in touch with you Rach! And seeing when you have a new post up!
    I must admit Facebook messaging app has helped me getting through the first week of being a new mum. Staying more awake and alert when I really need to be!
    I also love sharing photos with friends – and comedy posts! There is so much good humour there.
    Blessings, Jo x

    Facebook was definitely one of my go to sources of entertainment during late night feeding! Well done on surviving the first week of mummyhood. I tried to prioritize praying during feeding sessions in the early days but sometimes you are just battling to stay awake!!! X
