An Ode to Social Media
Oh, social networking....
you are the bane of my existence.
Nobody cares that I'm making a PB&J sandwich.
Nobody cares that I'm cleaning up another wad of crusty baked beans of the wall.
Nobody cares that I'm LOL'ing or OMG'ing what my BFF just tweeted.
But you have somehow managed to weasel your way into my daily routine and are now sucking the life out of me.
I don't have time to think of witty status updates, ok?
I don't have the energy to post interesting links and comments 10-20 times per day.
I don't feel like copying and pasting my blog content on 50 different networking sites every time I write something.
I don't want to sign up for services that allow me to manage 50 different social media sites at the same time.
Just leave me alone, ok?
Can I just blog and not network?
Can I just say I'm not into tweeting, facebooking, flickring, digging, deliciousing, linking in, pinging, and whatever else is out there?
Can't I just continue quietly stalking other people on Facebook and not take part in the conversation?
Does that make me a bad person?
Doesn't the 1-2 hours of brain juice I spill each day trying to write an interesting post count for something?
Does the fact that I don't have a smart phone mean that I'm not smart?
Well, guess what, social media? You're not outsmarting me. I'm just not that into you. So there.
