OK, I really did try to be a part of the Ultimate Blog Party 2010, but there were so many mommy blogs to visit and too many tweets to follow on Twitter. I’m afraid I got lost in the shuffle.
This happened before – in 2003. We shared our experience in ‘Technology Run Amok,’ a newsletter you can read in the Library on our website, www.HerMentorCenter.com. Long story short, we got caught up in the great technological abyss and the frustration we felt then was much the same as today.
So here it is, seven years later. Although I’m still intrigued and want to embrace all that the Internet has to offer, I find that I have no choice but to put it in perspective. And even if the aging experts tell us that multi-tasking stimulates our brain cells, in reality, keeping up with it all can be overwhelming.
Does that sound familiar? When does your time spent online with emails, researching ideas, branding yourself, social networking, etc. get in the way of everyday life. Just what is your tipping point?
