Facebook supplanted my blog

June 15, 2009

Stupid Facebook.

The problem with me making any sort of permanent move to Facebook is that although it is nice for short updates, it will not one day be easily searchable, or printed into a book of memoirs, or something equally useful. I think I am going to see if there is a simple and automated way to export my Facebook status updates to the blog. This way I can keep making frequent updates that will highlight some of our day-to-day lives (Facebook status updates) that will show up in the same place as some of these more in-depth posts. Hopefully this will provide some more context and perspective to any of our descendants that are looking to learn more about our lives (I know, this is probably a fine example of an exaggerated sense of self-importance, but hey, that’s just how I roll).

Sorry this post wasn’t very funny, but sometimes there has to be some housekeeping done around this place and it isn’t always entertaining. Although I am wearing a maid outfit as I type this, that’s kind of funny.



  1. that IS definitely funny.

  2. and scary all at the same time.

  3. If you figure that out let me know… That is my biggest problem with facebook, once your status updates are a few days old they are pretty much gone forever in the garbage dump of crap that comes along with facebook.

  4. You could always do the reverse and post your blog entries on facebook…

  5. Found this: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-o-matic/. I don’t think it would work for you, but it might work nicely for me. 😀

  6. You’re such a WordPress elitist
