I SPENT a bit of online time yesterday and today simplifying my life -- leaving message boards, deleting accounts, un-friending folks on FaceBook, that sort of thing. I figured I needed to be more efficient about how I wasted my time.
And I need to concentrate more on the creative, when possible. Not so possible at times, around here, as I need to keep a pretty constant eye on my mom to make sure she doesn't get into mischief or hurt herself. She's gotten bad about putting things into her mouth that she shouldn't.
Which is the main reason I'm not putting up a Christmas tree this year. I really do fear that she would be getting her hands onto it and perhaps harming herself. So only up-high decorations for us. It's not like she can really remember from day to day that Christmas is coming, anyway.
Back to the simplifying thing: I considering dropping the handful of MySpace accounts I maintain (barely) for different musical projects -- all pretty much in hiatus -- plus one personal page there. Went so far as to open a SoundClick page for my music but was thoroughly unimpressed and deleted it yesterday as well. So, I'll probably keep the MS pages for the nonce, despite the ridiculous changes there. Eventually, maybe Reverbnation if I start actually doing music again.
