Today is Sunday, July 11.
This marks the first day of my week-long grounding from all things social network-related.
Facebook. Twitter. And yes, even my blog.
Why, you ask? Well, because (like some of you, I suspect) I am easily distracted from the things I need to be doing throughout the day. I don’t have to work right now because it’s summer, which means that even though I have about 8 hours during the day that I don’t normally have, I’m getting less done than I do when I’m working.
And the reason I get less done is because I’m playing on Facebook or Twitter or blogging about something.
I mean people, we’ve got a baby GIRL (!!!) coming here in a few short months, and I have nowhere to put her or any of her stuff. But instead of going through all our junk and making room for things we’ll need, I sit on Twitter and make witty comments for an hour.
I’ve got a new book to write that I am WAY behind schedule on, but I click around on Facebook for 45 minutes and then take a nap.
Are you kidding me? I’m that lazy? …Yeah, unfortunately. So this is the last you’ll hear from me until a week from today. For those in the know, you’re welcome to e-mail or call, but I won’t be around for a while otherwise.
Darn that real life, interfering with my social networking.
OH! But when I get back, I’ve got so many cool things for you! I’m gonna do another Pre-Famous Interview, and I’ve got a spotlight story on a friend of mine and her small business. I’ll have a book review by then, too. So just hang on for a week and then you’ll get all those goodies and more.
Happy week, everyone!
