OK So I'm going to try and not inundate you with my ramblings to much but this has been bugging me for a couple of months now so I thought I'd just put it out there :)
So as some of you may know I kind of disappeared from the World Wide Web for a little while (a least on a personal level).
Well during this time it was brought to my attention that some people thought I had a problem with social networking and an addiction.
Now to me this is absurd. While everyone is entitled to their own opinion on what is acceptable use of the Internet and I try and keep a open mind as to everyone's views on usage etc I am baffled as to why people would
A) think that and B) feel the need to comment on it.
So this blog post is for you (whomever you are. Drives me nuts I don't know as it means I have so called friends who don't have a enough guts to come and talk to me to my face).
OK yes in the past I have spent quite a bit of time on the Internet for work and out of boredom.
Yes the past few months I haven't been on so much partially because I have lost interest with updating people on my every move and partially I am hurt with regards to this opinion.
Let me fill you in on my situation and that might clarify things for you.
I work for a website company. I am on the computer at least 5hrs of every working day. If I feel the need to it's sometimes more depending on whether I have something of interest to look up or somethings happening.
My partner works for a company where he does shift work. 4 days on shift and 4 days off. During his 4 days on he works 2 day shifts and 2 night shifts, each shift is 12hrs long. So as you can imagine I spend a bit of time by myself.
I had been using Twitter and Facebook and Tumblr as a way of venting etc. I always tried to make sure that if I wasn't on the computer for work related and my daughter wanted to play with me that I did so. I always made and will continue to make sure all her needs where I can are met and will always take priority over the Internet.
To me social networking is a hobby. It's something to do that's interactive and can be fun to play with. Whether it be online games or a blog like this. It is also a way of me being able to have adult conversation when it is not always possible to leave my house or have people come visit.
It is also a way for me to keep up with whats happening with everyone and for my family and friends to see what is happening with me when they live over in Aussie or somewhere else in the world.
So thats basically it.
So to those of you out there that think or have thought I have a problem. You can stick it. You are obviously nosey enough to be reading my blog now and obviously follow me and my whereabouts on the Internet.
If you don't have enough guts to say to me you that you think I have a problem or even just talking to me about it then keep you opinions to yourself.
On that note. I hope everyone has had a good day and we'll catch you all again later :)
