In an attempt to cut down on my goofing-off time online, I’ve made the move. I deactivated my FaceBook page, which I wasn’t enjoying anyway, because every time I was there, checking various people’s updates and status message, I felt like I should’ve been doing something else. Something more productive. Like reading DailyKos or something… 😉
I’m trying to whittle down the distractions to a bare minimum, so I almost got rid of my Twitter account, but darn, I do kinda enjoy those little mini-blog entries as the day progresses. So Twitter escaped my deactivation wrath. For now.
Basically, I’m cutting down my online surfing to the following sites:
- My Gmail account, just because I live for email
- My LiveJournal Friends list, which is still the best way to read a bunch of journals I enjoy, quickly (I did get rid of some journals recently, and I hope nobody I cut out took offense!)
- DailyKos, because I’m totally addicted to the presidential race right now (I’m sure I’ll slack off after Election Day)
- My Yahoo home page, for news and stuff
- My Google Calendar, because I have to plan out everything
And that’s about it. No more social networking for me! I’m a free, un-networked entity. Woo hoo!
