Before I discovered Twitter and Facebook, I used to blog up to 6 times per day. With Twitter I can sum up my thoughts in 140 characters and with Facebook even more. That took the fun out of blogging which is why I don’t blog as often as I used to.
I’ve come to the point where I honestly can’t think of anything to say, even in a 140 character tweet. Yesterday I was bored and said this:
“They say if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all, but something is better than nothing.”
I think this was directed at myself because I don’t say much anymore.
Lately all I do is sit here looking at all the wonderful and sometimes snotty things other people say in their tweets and/or Facebook updates and think to myself, why didn’t I think of that? Why can’t I think of anything to say anymore?
Today I was bored and said this:
“When you don’t get any mail you think “No news is good news.” But sometimes it’s nice to get SOMETHING, even if it’s just coupons.”
What’s the point of even having social networks anymore? I become friends with people and never say a word until their birthday and then all I say is Happy Birthday. I’d love to read more books or play one of my MMORPG games, but I can’t even get into those because I’ve become bored with them. Is the problem that I’ve just become bored with everything?
I’ve been playing The Sims Freeplay on my phone a lot more than I used to play it, but only because I have something to accomplish and I’m guessing when I accomplish all of my tasks I will get bored with it again. What I need is something to be excited about. I remember playing EverQuest for sometimes 16 hours a day every day for 8 years until I became bored with it because everyone in my guild left to either go into another guild or to play the newest game. I also started playing other games, like Lord of the Rings Online, but I had nobody to play with so I eventually got bored with that and the same thing happened with EverQuest 2 and DC Universe Online. MMORPG games are more fun when you have people to play with.
Well it seems that I had more to say than I thought, but that seems to be all I can think of for now.
