I’m having a problem uploading my video this morning. I’ve loaded it twice (which took a long time) and neither one has processed yet – it’s been over an hour for the first one. It usually takes a few minutes.
I usually make the video and start the uploading process as soon as I come downstairs, and then run back to my laptop at some point during the rest of the morning craziness to post it. Sometimes I’m running so late that that doesn’t get done until after I drop the kids off from school. But this morning I actually dragged myself out of bed a little after six, made the video, made the kids’ lunches, made Jake some eggs (still haven’t woken Munchkin up yet), caught myself up on Twitter and Facebook since last night, answered a bunch of emails, and did some laundry. And still the video isn’t processed. Hmph.
I feel like I’m getting buried under all of the Facebook and Twitter stuff lately. I can keep up with emails OK on my phone, but I’m beginning to think that I need to upgrade to a phone that will make social media type stuff easier. I’m not dissing my LG Voyager – it does what it does well. But I think I need a smartphone. I need to be able to take documents with me, something I haven’t been able to do since I gave up my Clie over a year ago, and use applications for FB and Twitter and other stuff that I do all day. Keeping up with that stuff on the fly keeps it from piling up. But I still have 9 months left on this phone’s contract! Time to talk to some Verizon reps. Joy.
Last night after I got dinner together for the kids, I told them they could watch TV while they ate (they were thrilled) and I retired to the living room with my computer to try to do a bit of catch up. I’ve recently started using Tweetdeck, which has helped me keep up with Twitter in a huge way. But still, the information coming in…I can’t ignore it all, there’s good useful stuff in there. But how to organize and process it all without it taking over my life?
A problem that’s only going to get worse with time, I think, not better.
