  • Yes, internet kills my productivity, too. As does instant messaging! And I'm looking at you, Kate.

  • what is google reader?

  • Mandy - Google Reader is one way to keep up with blogs and news - any site that sends out a feed - without having to visit a bunch of different websites every day. (Bloglines does the same thing.) You find yourself subscribing to every new blog you come across, and before long you've got over 100 subscriptions and literally hundreds of updates a day. Or maybe that's just me. It's definitely my #1 distraction.



    Kate - I'm so glad you're here, being distracted on Friday afternoon too (although you've probably gone home by the time I post this, since you're back east)!

  • The internet, my own website, blogs and WIM for sure! I love it all. My house looks like I had 5 playgroups here today. It''s Friday night and this is my big night out.



    Definitely going to try google reader.

  • Internet for sure. I think having internet so easily accessible is good and bad I do all my research on internet but then I get distracted and sidetracked…

  • This is going to sound silly -- but I am like that when I get a new planner or agenda. I am such a paper junkie -- when I get a new planner, I can spend hours organizing it. Yes, hours. You can laugh now.
