just browsing, not posting

I haven't neglected this blog or anything. I just haven't posted since its tough to find readers (or what they call 'followers') but I've been getting bored with Facebook and Twitter. I've noticed some more things are changing and rapidly evolving as we see trends come and go. I've also found some great blogs from this site (blogger, blogspot?) so it should keep me busy.

As mentioned before, I believe Facebook has seen its peak. I would hate to go to a new website and start over and add friends and old acquaintances again. I've heard people already say that Google Wave will be the next 'in-thing'. The thought of a 'google wave' sounds pretty scary. (If you've ever seen the Afterschool Special called 'The Wave' then you'll know what I'm talking about. You can watch it here: But so many adults I know are on Facebook and I don't really see them doing the same thing I don't want to do, which is again, starting over. Lately, I've been getting friend requests from people I don't even know, and in most cases, I turn them down. Don't get me wrong, I feel bad everytime I do such thing. But if I don't know them, or if they have no mutual friends, or if they have very few friends, its obviously just spam. I would hate to compare Facebook to Myspace, but whats going on here? I've also been getting bored with posting statuses, as I feel that I'm running low on ideas. Usually something poking fun at culture or the news, or a quote here and there. I guess I just feel that I've turned my back on the world, or Facebook society has turned its back on me, I don't know. I still read the newsfeed, so I can easily keep up on my 'friends'. It's always that feeling that by the end of the day, you feel like you missed out on their important moment of the day (lol).

Twitter, on the other hand, I feel I can go crazy on there all the time. My brother-in-law Kyle stated that he's 'totally addicted' to it because that's where he gets his main news from. And I can see that. I do have a few close friends on there, but I wish there were more people I know on Twitter. Some people just don't feel that their lives are important enough, I guess. I do like getting the personal side to some of my favorite famous people (such as authors, politicians, etc).

Well, I have plenty of things to share with you. Mainly, what's been going on the last 3 weeks! And today is my 12th anniversary at my employer's. I was hired here on 6/3/1998 after I finished my soph year in high school. (note: my employer's media policy includes not blogging or sharing certain information about it on socialnet sites.) But I shall wait....
