Writer's Block: Internet addictions

Besides LJ, what websites are you always surfing?

Facebook, twitter, dreamwidth, blogger, deviant art ... not to mention my own website and places like the writer's group I'm part of, Writers of Mass distraction:  http://writersofmassdistraction.com/about-the-writers-of-mass-distraction/

I try to get all over the web as much as possible, not only to keep up with things but because writers have to promote, these days.  Although I should be writing, I've met a lot of great people this way.

LJ and DW are more manageable and less frustrating when I stick to my flists instead of randomly watching new posts. The more I read about Facebook, the happier I am that I don't use it. And I "surf" much less now that I've shifted over to reading most of my daily sites via RSS feeds. Mostly I find stuff through sources I trust to filter for me, and just live without the excitement (read: time sink) of truly random searching.

Oh, I very rarely do any random surfing anymore; time suck is right!

I resisted Facebook for a long, long time; now I have not only my own page, but a fan page there. Although I've found it a great way to reconnect with old friends and distant relatives, otherwise everything bad that people say about it is absolutely true.

Tumblr and Ravelry are my other favorite haunts. Pretty pictures and pretty knitting, huzzah. I have a FB but I never use it or read anything there. I'm lurky on twitter, reading celeb and friends tweets, but I don't tweet.

What do you like about blogger that you don't see here on LJ? I'm interested blogger (and wordpress as well).

I prefer LJ; in fact, I stumbled into a Blogger account pretty much by accident, and decided to keep it to promote my writing. however, I discovered that some people who don't have LJ accounts have trouble reading and commenting here, so when I post a link to my regular column on other sites I link it to the Blogger post. I think that might work to my advantage; if the time ever comes that my fiction becomes very popular, I can let Blogger be my public place and make LJ friends only.

I have a wordpress account that I never even knew about, until I went over there to be a part of the Writers of Mass Distraction group. I have no idea when I signed up for it!
