Too much on my mind

August 5th, 2009

Poet Mom recently asked how much social networking is too much? I guess the answer is going to be different for each of us, but for me it seems to be “when I forget my SheWrites login two days after creating the account.” Thanks to the kind people at Ning who helped me find myself again.

Painting the studio is on hold for a few days. For some strange reason, my husband doesn’t want me inhaling paint fumes two days after discovering I have pulmonary emboli. I think he’s being unreasonable, but you know loved ones, what are you going to do?

Since I’m not painting, I’m trying to get other things done. I donated two bags of clothes today and sorted out where to donate several large bags of books before the move.

Many journals, journals associated with colleges and universities, don’t read over the summer. A whole bunch of journals I’m interested in are about to start reading again and I haven’t finished all the revisions I wanted to make. I should be doing that right now, I suppose, instead of bloging. 

And yet I blog.

    Interesting question about how much social networking is too much. I think the idea is to use each site as it works for you and not to get too bogged down in stuff that you feel is just distraction (for me that would be eg quizes on facebook). So far all the social networking I use works in its own way and there have been good positives from all of them. read Write Poem for example, thanks for requesting friendship over there,….

    Oh the new Read Write Poem is awesome, I’m all over that. I fell off the RWP radar for a while there, but am loving the new makeover.
