Ever since the book came out, I've received feedback about how it's made women think about friendships throughout their lives, as well as who is in their lives now. The goal of this blog is to open up and create a dialogue about friendships: the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Each week I will post my thoughts, experiences, as well as various articles, topics or quotes that I feel are important when examining female friendships. Please feel free to leave comments; I look forward to hearing from you!

Many of you know I have a love/hate relationship with Facebook...and social media, for that matter.  I go back and forth with how helpful or how hurtful it can be, especially in how it impacts our relationships.  Thus, below is a great article to share about this very topic (and you may even recognize a familiar name in the article!).

Are You Suffering from Social Network Syndrome?

What are your thoughts about social network syndrome?  Do you feel you have a good balance with how you utilize social media?


  1. I actually like social media (I like to think I'm not crazy about it). I don't think it has replaced face to face at all for me, but it helps me stay more connected to people i wouldn't otherwise have time to. However, I laughed reading this article because I do occasionally compare myself and then realize how stupid it is. After going on a 12 day trip this summer, I was home for maybe 5 days before I was looking at pictures on facebook wondering why everyone was on vacation except me haha. I had to give myself a quick reality check there :)

  2. Thanks, Kelly! I wish more people would give themselves a reality check!
