I thought I had a problem...I questioned the time I spent doing it. I felt guilty. But I couldn't quit. Then I moved on to harder "stuff."
First it was FACEBOOK and now it is TWITTER! I need therapy!
I have thoroughly enjoyed facebook for finding old high school friends and sorority sisters! How awesome! It has also proven itself as an amazing networking tool. Many of my 300+ friends are agent and editors from around the country! Updating my status allows them to peek in on how I am coming with the projects I promised I am working on.
Twitter is just bizarre, though. I have collected over 1,000 tweeps but I don't know what to do with them. LOL! I just think it is a popularity contest that we play in our heads..."NA NA NA NA NA NA...I have more friends than you...." I question WHAT we can do with it?? I suppose as a freelance writer I could organize interviews, etc.
Either way, I use them too much, they make me stay up too late and sometimes I waste time on them thinking I am networking instead of jut putting pencil to paper and writing my next big idea! But it's fun and I am all about that!
But I tell myself I don't need them....I could do without them....no cold sweats...no shivers...
I just went to check Twitter...and got this...
Twitter is currently down for Planned maintenance. We expect to be back in about an hour. Thanks for your patience.
What??!!!!! Are you kidding me???! But I need to check my list...I need to see how many @ replies and DMs I have...
Addicted? Nope. Not me.
What do you use Facebook and Twitter for?
