Pinterest? Instagram? Just when I thought I understood Facebook!

Posted: January 15, 2013 in Random Rants & Racy Thoughts!

OMG! Pin It! Tweet It! Insta….. Oh sh%$ what’s next? I mean really. If I have to endure one more change on Facebook, I’m opening a MySpace account again!

Am I the only one that feels this way? Isn’t it enough just to have a GREAT Website?

Now I find myself feeling the pressure to snap a photo of anything note worthy and publish it to Instagram while I’m taking the kids to school. All that just to stay current, cutting edge and ahead of the curve! Sadly, it’s just not that interesting where I live and work! Or is it?

Do you really want to see an amazing photo of the meal I just prepared? Or better yet, how about the pan I burned, almost catching fire to the house while preparing that amazing meal, because I was too busy updating my status on our business page!

I’m really not self-centered enough to believe for one minute that I am alone in this. Just when I thought I had a handle on Pinterest, someone screwed everything up and asked to Pin To My Board. Stupid me…I accepted. Now I find that I need to readjust my settings so I don’t wind up with 400 email notifications that some gifted Pinterest over achiever has pinned forty pins to my board in the last fifteen minutes!

I haven’t even mentioned Yahoo! Or LinkedIn, Four Square, Twitter and let’s not forget YouTube! My gosh, where would we be without all of the social media outlets?

I can only imagine what you’re thinking right now. I feel it too! “Oh, to not be tied down to this horrific social life I’ve created on my computer. Agh!”

Well for me, I’d probably spend sometime at the gym. Maybe start working out again. I miss that. Or maybe I’d be out driving my Corvette (Scarlett). Enjoying the gorgeous, sun kissed California afternoon, driving through Kanan, listening to the Foo Fighters, heading to PCH. Or perhaps I’d even cook dinner without concern of burning down the house!

With all of the different social media outlets it seems now more than ever we have multi-tasked ourselves into a lifestyle that we can’t keep up with. At least that’s how I’m feelingl! Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE technology. I’d say that 95% of my day goes smoother as a result of having all this technology. But when it changes and updates at an exponential rate, I’ve found it more and more challenging to keep up and do everything else I’ve got to do to keep not just my business running smoothly, but my household too!

Maybe it’s time for me to grab Scarlett and go burn some rubber for a change! Be sure to honk and wave if you too get a chance to get out on the open road and feel the rush of adrenalin that only serious horse power can bring! Or take a picture of me as I race by and post it on Instagram. I’ll be sure to check it out when I return!

As always – keep an eye on the mirror and the peddle to the floor! Muah 🙂
