Yes, I'm Cheating on iWeb

I miss you, Blogger. I have one more month to decide if I want to keep my Mobile Me account and I'm not sure what I want to do. Doesn't Apple have enough of my money?
In other news, the internet got a whole lot smaller this week. Almost my entire inbox is filled with Facebook alerts. I've found myself forgetting that I live on the other side of the country from everyone I know because I have a constant connection to people. Do people need to have high school reunions anymore? You don't need to wait 10 years to compare your progress because you can learn it all on Facebook minus the painful small talk. I'm only thinking about this now because it wasn't until the past few months that my Facebook circle expanded beyond people I see with some regularity. The fix is similar to what we get from reality tv, only somehow because it's people we know it seems more real.
That being said, I plan to continue using Facebook because I'm as curious as the people seeking me out. I also plan to keep blogging (though the venue remains undecided) because I like that people have to decide to read it. It's not an unsolicited blurb on their newsfeed. And I also plan to do something useful with my novielli.org domain as soon as I figure out what useful thing I can contribute to the internet.
I'm interested in what everyone's thoughts are on our growing addiction to online social networking. All four of you. =)

All I know is that I'm horribly addicted to Twitter. No one needs to know the random things I tweet. And believe me, it's nearly all random.

It's awfully fun, though, and keeps me entertained at work.

i agree with helen. twitter has been the best - now that the whole family is on it it's even better.

as for mobileme, its not any more expensive then webspace - its just a shame those templates from iweb wont play nicely with our website.

really, the point of all this internetting is to bring people closer - and we all know how far apart we all live now, so whatever works best for it, use it!

I guess since we live in different parts of the country, I like to look up what you say on different websites. Of course, the given is if we are actually busy at work, I forget everything internet wise but if we are not busy at work then I am starving for things to read. It is awful hard to keep up with blogs (looking at my two lonely blogs that havent been updated in months!) but whatever you decided, I'm sure I'll figure out how to stay in the loop.. after all i am now a twittering fool.
