It's fun being a rock star..." 'James "Kimo" Rosen'

Time sure flies, birthday's come and go and before long your life has passed before your eyes...

This blog originally ran on February, 10, 2012 (Blog #570) ,"Facebook Birthday greetings."

Birthday's are like any other day of the year, in fact every-day is some-body's birth-day. It's nice to be recognized, usually loved ones and close friends will send greetings, however with the advent of social media with such sources as Facebook, birthday greetings can now make one feel like a rock star.

I have over one  thousand friends on Facebook, most of whom I have no idea who they are. I started befriending everyone who sent me a friend invite and actually starting inviting others to be my friend on the recommendation of Facebook. I did this since I post a daily blog  on Facebook and was hoping for increased readership. The fact of the matter is; I do have an increased readership due to Facebook, in addition to many friends I have never met.

This past January 23rd  I celebrated a  birthday and to my surprise I had over 100 birthday greetings, I think I knew 12 of the people who sent me a birthday greeting, all others I had no idea who they were, none the less it sure felt good thinking I really had that many friends! 
Now I can go back to being the quiet hermit I am until next January when once  again I will hopefully achieve rock-star stature!

birthdays are a good thing; the more you have, the longer you live.
