Keeping Up

Okay, I'm struggling. I really envy these people who manage to maintain a website, blog, Shoutlife, Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and who only knows what else, and still manage to get any writing done.
I can't do it.
Some things have got to go. Facebook isn't going to be one of them. ha.
I don't have a MySpace and I never go on Shoutlife anymore. I'm wondering what the benefit of keeping that is.
Blogging has always been up in the air for me. I read all this stuff about how I'm supposed to be
'establishing an internet presence' and gathering my ready-made fan club so that when the day comes when hell freezes offer and I do actually get published, people will be interested in reading my book. Hmmm.
Does this really work? I mean, what do I really have to offer anyone here on this blog?
Just my ramblings on life in general, very exciting I'm sure.
I don't know whether to pitch the blog and be done with it. It would certainly be one less stress for me to worry about. Like I lose sleep over the fact I haven't blogged in ten days, but you know...
I guess right now I'm feeling a little overwhelmed with life in general and I'm looking for ways to make things a little easier.
If I have something earth-shattering to report, I will. But for now, until I can get this whole thing figured out, I think I'll just have to blog when I can.
And here I thought I could do it all...

And just when I found you, too! But you have to do what you have to do, and I shall just have to haunt you more at FB if you abandon the blog. That's okay. I can do that. And HA I found you on Twitter. Am I making you nervous yet? :p (I hope not...)

Well I probably won't be abandoning the blog completely - I just don't want to feel pressured to blog if I really have nothing to say...which probably won't last too long since I usually have something to say about nothing most of the time!

I find that with the blog AND Facebook AND Twitter AND forums, I don't always have something to say on the blog. Feels like I've said it already. Sometimes several times!
