I'm really not that busy

Finding hilarity in the mundane since 2008

So I am a total cliche

It started with facebook.  Seemed like harmless fun at the time.  Connect with current friends, find a few old ones.  Take some stupid quizzes.  Not an inspired pastime, but I’m a 35 year old mother of two with no passions or hobbies, inspired activities aren’t exactly my forte (however, self-deprecation might be).

Next came the blog.  For me, it was a natural transition from facebook to the blogosphere.  On facebook I share personal information and insights that are occasionally interesting but mostly banal with friends and acquaintances.
Today, Truck bought me a Flip Video (digital video recorder).  Within 30 minutes of owning it I had set-up a youtube account and was in the process of uploading video of my kids to the web.
Do you know how many people are on facebook?  Facebook says there are over 90 million active accounts.
Do you know how many people write blogs?  My 30 second google search lead me believe there are upwards of 50 million blogs out there.  Even if all of those people write two blogs each (because most bloggers write several) that is still 25 million bloggers.
Do you know how many people have youtube accounts?  Youtube estimates 15.9 million.
There are MILLIONS of people doing the same stuff as me.  Right now someone else is posting a blog about what a band-wagon jumper they are because they facebook, blog, and youtube. 
I am completely unoriginal.  Sigh.  
Coming soon to this blog: Youtube video of my stereotypical children performing predictable activities.
Sigh.

    I don’t care about the other trillions of people who do it…I care about this blog and those kids and those videos. So screw the rest and keep it up. You’ll have one loyal follower til the end…

    Faithfully yours,
    Jo
