open letter

An Open Letter to the 574 people I quietly "unfriended" on Facebook: I apologize for not telling you about my fan page first. I felt terrible when I realized I mixed up my order of operations, the way I mixed them up in math class as a kid.

Anyway, I just want you to know it wasn't personal. Except that it IS personal, I guess. I thought I might keep my personal page... personal. I'm an introvert and a private person at heart. Social networking still weirds me out sometimes.

But I think I'll be just fine on the fan page, where I'll talk about my life and book stuff and the world we live in and invite you to join the conversation. My blog links to the fan page as well.

I love readers. I hope you'll migrate here:

Love, Debbie


  1. Very fair. This is a tricky world to navigate!

  2. Thanks, Caroline. I actually have a lot more to say at the fan page, and feel better about saying it there. I use my fb personal page mostly to keep up with my grown kids! xo

  3. Totally agree. Personal page/ Professional page good move.

  4. Thank you, thank you. I'm feeling better already. I don't want to exclude people (I know what that feels like), I just want to be inclusive in the best possible way. Feeling my way, here...
