Feed Needs

In simpler (pre-social networking) days, I suffered from just one web addiction — checking my email. And that was bad enough.

But now it’s Facebook and Twitter and blogging, oh my!

And for some people, it’s even worse. I guess I should be relieved that I don’t especially dig Digg, and that MySpace hasn’t invaded my brain space. And that (so far, at least) I’ve withstood the lure of most of the social networking and social media websites listed here in all their gory glory.

Because, as you can tell from this limerick, I don’t need any more web obsessions:

Feed Needs
By Madeleine Begun Kane

I’m addicted to Facebook, it’s true,
And Twitter and weblogging too.
I’m desp’rately hooked.
All my hours are booked
On my quest to be fed something new.

    I’m with you, sister. It’s so bad for me that I have started sneaking around my house to blog/Twitter/FB. My husband will yell upstairs, “Hey, what are you doing?” And I call back, “Oh nothing, just reading” but I’m actually tap tap tapping away at the keyboard!

    Oh, Mad, if you long “to be fed something new”, check out this site: Neatorama. Awesomeness!
