Getting banned from Facebook has made me more productive

The upside to being banned by facebook is that I am managing to get loads of stuff done that I would normally dither about doing and instead spend mind time on Facebook.

It’s amazing how much of my time I “wasted” on it

I’ve also neglected this blog a bit so I guess I’ll have a lot more time available to work on it.

I have to admit I am a bit disappointed in it, maybe it’s because I came late to the game? or maybe because nothing I say is actually interesting to others?

Or maybe it’s because I take so long between posts? I don’t know.

I spent a lot of time and some money to get forums Installed on this blog, they never took off, no-one ever visited them except me. I have removed them now and started a full blown message board BBS at

I had over 600 friends and family on Facebook and I have no real way pf communicating with them to tell them what’s happened to me and where to find me because the only contact details I had for them were on Facebook.

Some friends now and are posting to try and tell others but not everyone is a friend of a friend.

The irony here is that when I google my friends google search returns their facebook profiles 🤣🤣 and I can’t get to their details.

The BBS software is PHPBB something I have used in the past, 10 or more years ago and it’s taking a bit of time for me to remember all of it’s little ways, but I am getting there.

I have had just a few friends follow me to the forum and some others added me to a whatsapp group but I hate using whatsapp and I keep telling people this, besides it’s owned by facebook and no doubt they will close it down for me as they have everything else.

I will plough on with PHPBB and this blog now and hopefully the people that want to find me will find me and I also guess I’ll find out who my friends really are as well lol

I’ll keep you updated.
