I have to say thank you to facebook, twitter and blogging.  Now when I can’t sleep instead of surfing the net or shopping online, I can chat with my “friends”.  I can write quick notes, IM and read up on people I haven’t seen in months.  This, of course being one of those nights.  I used to unwind with the tv or book and now it is the computer.  It seems to be the first thing I do in the morning (all related to relify) and then in the late evening when I am catching up with friends and family.  So thank you I am no longer alone in the middle of the night 🙂

the amount of time I spend on the computer…

the amount of time I spend on the computer… (edit/delete)
I was talking to a friend the other day about how much time I am on the computer on “social networking”. It used to be checking my emails, but now I check personal and work emails, twitter, facebook, wordpress, activerain, and a few other sites. I love to write my thoughts and read how my friends and colleagues are doing. It is amazing how often I am on the computer. I used to think about how many hours a year I spent at red-lights or waiting in line to checkout at the store was wasting my time. Now of course I have my cell phone to make calls, text, etc… but really how much time is spent on the computer. I know the value of it, but why not just use one site? Why do I check all of these sites (like most of friends as well). How many hours per year am I toggling between social networking sites? How many hours per year are you?
