- Computer / Internet
When I think about my day, I am completely addicted to searching for patterns through AllFreeCrochet.com. Some patterns really wow me. And there are those that I start to mentally dissect the minute I see them. If I were do the same pattern, what yarn would I use? How long would it take? Do I really want to invest my time into the project?
I think with so many options for finding the perfect pattern, I might be overwhelmed with the vast selections and creativity others are willing to share. Sharing can include posting patterns through AllFreeCrochet or even linking to projects through Facebook.
Should we even discuss Facebook? I am on there all day, everyday. When I am out shopping or doing something constructive, my mind is wondering “What is happening on Facebook?” I start thinking of new status updates to use –Oh my word, admitting this out loud is making me feel like a psycho.
The reality and the point to my admissions is that I think I am part of a new generation that is reliant on the internet to share and inspire creativity. But this generation is also addicted to the internet. I know first hand that if the power suddenly went out, then I might actually do something constructive and get more projects done. Oh wait… my computer systems are backed up by a battery generator… Okay… I’ve just admitted I am nuts!
Seriously though, the internet is a great resource tool, but it can also suck your time away before you know it. I think I need to come up with a schedule to best utilize my time.
So this is where you come into play. I would love to hear what people do to limit their time online. Remember, I’m addicted, so what would you say to encourage me to get off the computer and onto my favorite hobby? Leave a comment and share your thoughts with me. I’ll be checking back throughout the week.
See you next Wednesday for another addition of Knotty Crochet Wednesday with Mikey.
