Internet crack? What are you talking about?! Internet crack refers to those sites which you start using and can’t STOP! You sit at the computer and the first thing you do is check the site to see what is there. It’s like a present every visit. Which sites? Facebook obviously is one. Etsy is an art lover’s dream. Pinterest is the new craze. A paradise for people who love home and arts and crafts.
My Internet crack is Facebook. If you have read my blog before you know I have a love-hate relationship with it.I won’t let myself use Pinterest right now. Why? I love arts and crafts! That’s exactly why. Right now I don’t have time to read a book for pleasure. I certainly don’t need to view a site that stimulates my mind and heart and makes me want to abandon everything to play! I’d never get anything done. I already have a stack of magazines sitting in a box ready for a craft project that I haven’t had time to work on. People keep saying, “You NEED to join Pinterest!” I know they mean well. It is the exact kind of site someone like me loves. And that is exactly why I can’t right now. I need all of the time I can hang on to.
Give me a couple of months and I’ll be as big of a junkie as the rest of my friends.
