I have to admit... as of late, I have lost my blogging mojo. I just haven't been up to it. Losing Koty has been harder than I thought it would be. I miss her so much. Also, I think I'm just feeling an overload to all this social media talk.
Do people really care what I ate for lunch?
How I feel after eating lunch?
And, where I am going after lunch?
Is the minutia of our daily lives really that interesting to others? I just don't get it.
I signed up for Twitter almost a year ago. I've never used it. I can't even figure out how the hell to twitter. The interface doesn't seem very intuitive to me, and I'm pretty computer-savvy. I signed up for Facebook almost a year ago as well. I'll admit, it's fun to get a note from a long last pal from High School or College, but I just don't have the time or energy to keep up with it. Who does?
I think it's pretty remarkable that I have a blog. I've been blogging pretty consistenly for two years. It's been great fun. It's been great for my business. It's been a great way to connect with like minded people. It's been great to belong to a blogging community. And, most importanly, I have realized it's been a great way to record events in my family's life.
Blogging is enough for me. Sometimes, it is too much for me. And when it is, I just back off. I don't want to spend all this time online. I want to post, read a few blogs and then move on with my day. I have really made an effort to stay off the computer when I do not have real work to do. And you know what? I get so much more done in my daily life. So I don't care what the media says about joining the Twitter, Facebook, My Space bandwagon. It makes me sad to hear that 'it's the way of the future." I just want to be happy and present for my family, not worried about updating all my accounts.
What about you? Do you twitter? Have a FB page? I'd love to know where you all stand on this :)
