Addicted to the Internet

I can't seem to get off the internet lately.  I'll be playing with the kids or cleaning up the kitchen when I start to get the itch - Gotta check my facebook page, did he email me back? Has anyone else started following me on Twitter?  I'm an undercover ludite.  I resisted facebook for at least a year before I caved.  I didn't even have the internet in my house two years ago.  I guess I knew I was prone to this kind of addiction.  Can anybody relate?


  1. I have a very hard time working with my computer and not surfing the internet at times, so I totally relate! I probably check in on facebook and email ten times a day, too, though I don't do twitter. I did once upon a time, but got bored with it. I'm excited that you have a blog now though!! <3

  2. Yes, I totally relate! My laptop is in the living room and its always on so I'm always popping over for a wee peek! (Even in the midst of cooking supper). I think everyone who uses social media is like that. It's part of the connection.

    When I sit down to write, I have to force myself not to go on it ( now. I was originally supposed to be writing but then hopped on Twitter just to check and here I am on your blog!).

    Sometimes I have to be more severe with myself but other times I just find it funny. I've made a lot of great connections thru Twitter and blogging as both a writer and a teacher. Its more positive than anything, so I don't mind so much!

    Nice to have met you!
