All social networking sites. Also, incredible time wasters! Looking back on the last, I don't know, however long I've been on these sites I can think of about a million other things I could have been doing. I had a MySpace page in high school, I think, and have had one ever since. Facebook I've had for at least 3 or 4 years, LinkedIn for a few months, Meetup for about a year and Twitter is the newest; going on about two weeks with that one.
A few weeks ago I deleted my MySpace, as I was no longer using it and a few weeks before that I deleted my Meetup account. And now, I'm seriously contemplating deleting my Facebook account. Twitter is still the shiny new toy so that will probably stick around for awhile. But lately I've had nothing but stress over Facebook, of which I didn't think I was going to write about here but then realized 'it's my blog and I can write about whatever I want, the good, the bad and the ugly'. Facebook, for me at least, has recently become a way of communicating cryptic messages via status updates. Some of you reading this know what I'm talking about, others don't and I really don't feel like typing out the whole god awful story so just bare with me! Basically what I'm trying to say, and not doing a very good job at it, is that Facebook is really just bringing me back to a high school level of petty bullshit and I'm sooooo over it! Who really needs to know what the hell you're doing every five minutes? I've made my profile completely private, no one can search me or find me unless they are already my friend, and I don't think I'm going to participate much anymore. Life is just too short, and it's so not worth it to be frustrated over a WEBSITE!
Twitter I think is a different story. Through Twitter I have found a ton of mom written blogs, all incredibly funny, and without Twitter I don't think I would have found them. I'm really interested in exploring the 'mommy blogger' community because I love to blog; writing is such a good outlet and I'd like to think that I can write something worth reading! I'm actually considering taking a writing class to brush up and maybe learn something. But I digress....
I've made a few connections on Twitter, so far so good.
Now, on to something else that's been on my mind:
Someone told me, today actually, that my blog is nothing but negativity. Again, my blog, if you don't like it, don't read it. I try to write everything with a sense of humor and I write from experiences that at the time maybe made me crazy, but later made me laugh.
That being said, if you don't find my blog funny or worth reading, then don't read it! No one's holding a gun to your head!
Ok, re-reading this, this is definitely not my best work....sort of a long, drawn out ramble but I got out what I wanted to. Hopefully the next one will be a little better thought out!
