Slowly I Drift toward the Darkside

First it was e-mail, then the Internet, blogs/journals, Pogo and flickr. Those bad habits led to an RSS reader (so you can keep up with even more stuff!) Kicking and screaming I ended up with a MySpace page. Now.... I've joined Twitter. Yes, I'm on of those Twitter people. And, I blame Scalzi! If it hadn't been for him allowing his CAT to twitter..... well, once I started following Ghlughee's feed, it led, predictably, to me following Scalzi's. then he did an @ to Wil Wheaton, so I added him. A few of the blogs I follow have Twitter feeds, so I've been adding them. But, I was in denial. I didn't Twit... I only read what others Twitted. It was kind of like being a lurker on a Blog. Then, one day you see something... and you reply to it. And, you are done. You have joined the masses. You Twitter. You add a Twitter client to Firefox so you can follow your Twits without having to actually go to Twitter.com, and you admit defeat. The Internet is actually sucking up all of your time and there is NOTHING you can do about it!

Next thing you know I'll have a FaceBook account. Yeah, we all know I'm headed there. I'm not even sure why I'm fighting it. LOL!

Hmm, this pace is way too fast for me so I am going to leave twittering up to you and hope that you come back from your mad pace to tell us about it. Gerry

ROFL...the day you announce you're on Facebook, the 12 step intervention team will be dispatched. Have a good one! HUGS

Oh . . . I don't know that I want to go there. However, I didn't know my son was twitterin'. Mayhaps I will peek. Thanks for nice comments on his blog and mine for my birthday. Blessings, Penny

Oh you must join us on the Dark Side! I'm talking about Facebook! I love it!

Rachel said...

Come on, join facebook. Everybody's doin' it! HA! If you do, promise you'll either find me, or announce that you're on, so I can find you.

Donna said...

I twitter. And if you join Facebook, be sure to join my friend list on YoVille. I need team members!

I twitter too......well, at least I'm signed up on twitter. I haven't figured out how to do that feed you're talking about so I have to actually GO there. That would be why I've not visited for a while.

I haven't succumbed to myspace but I do have a facebook account and I won't even admit how many blogs I subscribe too........I am really one sick puppy. When the 12 step interventions get started, I'm probably a good candidate........so, you are not alone, my friend!

I have all I can do to keep up with all the readers/followers I have. Twitter, MySpace and Facebook would put me over the edge. (Actually I have a facebook account, but I'm going to close that out, I never use it)...

Now I'm a guest writer on a few other blogs...I'm barely spewing material for my own. This should be a writer's heaven. It is...when you don't have writer's block.
