Deleting My Facebook Account

I no longer have a Facebook account thanks to an extremely rude person who reported me as spam.

Here is how many posts I had in the last 2 months on Facebook and you tell me if that is spam?

4 posts to my wall in May

6 posts to my wall in April

8 posts to my wall in March (which works out to 2 a week)

Yet, most people post numerous times each day and also have loads of posts of all the games on Facebook (which I did not do because I think those are annoying). Even though I found those annoying did I mark them as spamming? No.

I tried posting something on Wednesday and that is when I got the message (when trying to post) that my website link (this website) had been reported as being spam. I hadn't even posted anything yet in June and this would have been the first post of the month.

The thing that irks me the most (aside from just what a jerk the person is) is that I never friended anyone on Facebook they all friended me.

Everyone needs to understand that I am take up my valuable time to write in this blog. I don't get paid for it, I don't get brand new appliances, trips, hotel stays, car rentals etc. like a lot of the other bloggers out there do. Yes, I do use some affiliate links (which yes, I have a disclaimer - see side of my blog) but guess what? I have made less than $100 since I started writing in this blog back in 2008. And that $ includes sign up bonuses (which is a large portion of the $ I have made). I have also hosted contests on here with items I bought with my own money. I don't make a lot of money from my actual job (if I told you how little I made you would be shocked). I also don't have friends or family helping me out with anything. I do everything 100% myself. I pay for everything 100% myself. So this website takes up my time, so does Facebook and Twitter but I thought hey, maybe I can help someone else out with finding ways to buy things cheaper. I know if it weren't for my frugal ways we would not be able to make it. And I am sure there are plenty of other people out there who are in the same boat as me and if they found this website I could help them.

I spent over an hour on Facebook trying to find a way to contact them so I can this whole mess cleared up but there is no way to contact anyone who works for Facebook. I also made a new Facebook account and nope still could not post links to this blog. So there is no point for me to even have a Facebook account since it was only for me to direct people to this blog.
