How Quickly I Crush

I'm calling it a crush. Not an obsession, not an infatuation...a crush. It's not a crush on a person (although I have a mad huge crush on Dave), it's a crush on computer related things. Dorky I know.

My crush first started with the blog craze. It was probably more of an obsession, but shhhh....I dont like that word; hence the crush. I wanted to read blogs all day long. And I would. Every time I would be on the computer, Dave would say, "are you looking at blogs?" And I would sheepishly smile and say, "noooo" even though that's exactly what I was doing. My crush on blogs has since faded. Don't get me wrong, I still love looking at and reading blogs, it's just not quite on the same level as it once was.

The crush on blogs soon morphed into a love for Craigslist. We had a house with no furniture and all of a sudden I NEEEEEDED to fill it with stuff from Craigslist. I would search for everything I could think of, emailing people to see if things were still available, forwarding Dave links at every turn. "What do you think of this couch??" "I really want this hutch" and on and on. We ended up purchasing a few things from Craigslist and then my crush kind of faded. Don't get me wrong, I still look for things every few days, but it's just not quite on the same level as it once was.

My new crush? Twitter! I can't really explain why I like it so much. A status update website? Really? Kind of lame right? But let me tell you....there's something about it that just sucks you right in. And it's fun. It's fun to read little blips about what people are doing. I'm still crushing pretty hard on Twitter. But how long will the crush last? And the biggest question of all....what will be my next crush??

I think your next crush will be Seesmic. I still haven't figured out the whole Twitter thing!

I feel bad. I never got to know you well on twitter, because I left shortly after you arrived. It was taking up to much of my time. Something had to go so I could finish the seven books I've started.

I still crush on blogs like design*sponge and others that have fun before and afters with old furniture and rooms. Yum yum yum.

I'm thinkin' Facebook. It hasn't gotten its grip on me yet, but it likes to whisper sweet nothings in my ear. So many have abandoned their Blogland roots for this looker. Beware.

Chloe: I left my blog for Facebook -- but now I'm back. It doesn't really satisfy.
