That's me and the internet. I love it, I hate it.
I love all the interesting blogs, ideas, forums, social networking etc. I hate how it's a never ending rabbit hole.
For every one awesome blog or inspiring person to follow on twitter there are thousands more waiting in the wings. I find the screen addictive and with an iPhone I can waste hours entertaining myself and ignoring real life. I find myself asking the kids to wait while I read an article or ignore house stuff to go back and read hours I have missed on Twitter.
I don't think this is making me happy.
I do think I'm finding a compulsion to know what's happening. To see photos of the children of a person I haven't spoken to since the third grade, to read articles people link to-knowing they will piss me off, to follow blogs that I don't love to be polite in the blogging world.
I love being in touch with friends-both in real life and online. I love finding inspiring stuff to read. I love being entertained. But I think my net usage has gone beyond this.
Can I just blog, read blogs I adore and cull my facebook friends?
