Okay, I know I've been a bit neglectful of my blog and others' blogs. I'm really sorry about it. I have tried to keep up. It used to be that blogs (writing and reading) took up all my free time. I do love the blogs. That and good books. Those were always my biggest time sucks (outside of work, family and sleep, of course).
But now, there is a new thing taking my time... I joined Facebook. I did it. I refused to join for a very long time because I knew it would just eat up my time. But my sister's been bugging me for years to get on. Then my best friend and some others close to me got. The final straw was that my sister started telling me about the word games that you can play against your friends and online. I loves me some word games.
So now, I'm completely addicted. And it has been great. I've found old friends, coworkers and even acquaintances who I'd lost touch with. Although an ex-boyfriend sent me a friend request, but that is easily ignored.
But mostly, I've found really fun word games. The time I usually spend writing posts and reading and commenting on other blogs is getting completely sucked away. One time suck getting sucked away by another.
So today's question of the week is:
What is your biggest time suck?
I don't mean work or sleep or family stuff. That time is your life. But there are those activities that we get into and tune out the rest of the world, that we choose to do in any free time we have. Those are time sucks. Which are yours?
