Facebook, Twitter, Perez Hilton, People.com, Gawker, E! Online…
These are all names of websites, among a few others, that I tear through for information on a daily basis. Starting October 1st, I will be separating myself from these sites. No longer will I peruse gossip sites to find out the latest on what kind of mess Lindsay Lohan has gotten herself into, or if Justin Bieber’s hair has miraculously flipped over to the right side of his face. Gone will be the days of extending witty remarks on all of my friend’s status’, giving my two cents on my friend’s DAR pilgrimage or an unflattering photo.
I just feel oversaturated, overwhelmed and unimpressed by the pointless knowledge which clouds my mind. In the duration, I plan on only using my computer to read hard news, skipping over the gossipy sections a la Page 6, instead opting for world, national, and local news. If anything gossip related comes on a news program, I will begrudgingly change the channel.
One catch – I’m only allowed to use social networking sites to update you all on when my blog or other writing endeavors go live. I’ll be documenting my dwindling knowledge of pop culture/my friend’s and stranger’s e-lives.
In the meantime, I have 9 days to live it up… so If I’m commenting on your life more than normal – you know why. After that point you can catch me on the e-mail and mobile scene.
