Confessions of an Internet Junkie!

I’ll shamelessly admit it. I have a Myspace, a Facebook, and even a AIM instant message account.

Here’s why.

Some of my younger teens wanted to have a Myspace. So, I decided to check it out for myself.

The positives:

· I’ve learned more about my kids (even my grown ones!) and their friends than I would have ever known otherwise.
· I’ve been able to stay in touch with my friends on a different level than e-mail or phone.
· I’ve “met” some really great people from my church and other groups because of the technology
· It’s a fun way to communicate with my children, even the ones living in the same house!

The negatives:

· Some of the advertising on Myspace is unprincipled
· It can take quite a bit of time.

So far, the positives outweigh the negatives.

I'm impressed! What a hip mom/grandmom. BTW your myspace is cool did you do that or did one of the manymeadows do it for you? :-)

Thanks, Scott! Well, I did have some help initially, but now I'm flying on my own!! I'm big on slide shows---I enjoy showing off those kids and grands.

Not too bad for an old girl, huh? LOL ;)
