I thought the advent of social networking was supposed to make everything easier, save time - you know, speed things up a bit. But what we're seeing is the opposite, I think. Now we don't have enough time to maintain all of our cyber pages that are floating around. It's becoming more of a chore than a fun activity.
The reality is that my social networking yard is becoming like my actual yard. If I neglect it and forget to cut it or water it or fertilize it, then it gets overgrown, becomes overrun with dandelions, and forces neighbors to move away from me.
If I want blog-neighbors, than I need to maintain my blog. I need to be consistent with my posts and make sure that they're neatly written and appealing, then, maybe I'll attract more people to come over for a visit.
But that will have to wait for now. I've got to go water my lawn.
