Farm Town Tips, Farm Town Fan Gear and How to Break the Addiction to Farm Town (if you want)

My sister is seriously addicted to Farm Town on Facebook. She introduced her children, sisters, aunt and friends to the site, so now there are dozens of us tending virtual farms on Facebook. Her farm on Farm Town amazes me and she has reached level 79.

I find that she has lots of company, as I'll share with you articles written by my writing friends with their tips for Farm Town. If you are seriously building up your Farm Town farm on Facebook, you'll need some of these instructions and shortcuts to make your farm even better.

If you are a FarmTown addict or know someone who is, check out the great Farm Town t-shirst, mousepads, coffee mugs and other gifts. The Farm Town addict will love getting these for birthdays or Christmas gifts.

Sometimes you feel the need to cut back on your time online and spend less time planting, harvesting and interacting on Farmtown. For that situation, I'm adding some strategies to get unhooked from Farm Town.

Too Much of a Good Thing?

My sister recently quit playing

FarmTown cold turkey.

She had 11 FarmTown farms!

She said it felt too much like work.

She's now reading more

and staying off the computer a lot in general.

      Squidoo is a great alternative to FarmTown!

      @Ann Hinds: I try to tell my Farm Town friends that they can have just as much fun on Squidoo (and make money too).
