If someone told me ten months ago I would be spending my free time using technology more throughout my day I would have thought the person was crazy. I work with technology all day long. How would it be possible to use it even more?
In July 2009 I signed up for Twitter. I was very resistant to the idea. After all, what would I have to say in 140 characters that people would want to read? And what could they say that would keep me interested?
In August 2009 I signed up for Facebook. And my free time has not been the same. (One reason why I never went back to playing EverQuest was the time suck.) I spent that rediscovered time writing and reading instead. I am limiting my time on it, believe it or not.
In September 2009 I sent my first text message from my prepaid cell phone. This particular Nokia model was in my possession for over 2 years before I sent one.
In February 2010 I was gifted an iPhone. Twitterific is my favorite part. It is so convenient to catch up on what’s going on in my neighborhood throughout the day. But I also like Toodledo and Flight Control.
This month I began using Google Reader. That’s right. I have a handful of sites in my Google Reader now. I’m horrible about bookmarking sites and unless it’s one I can remember easily it can be months before I return. I really like Google Reader.
What’s my next step? Who knows… maybe I’ll look into feedburner next so others can easily follow my blog too!
