Keeping Up With Your Networking

This week my goal is to conquer every popular networking website out there...

According to this website *** that I found through immense research (which means it was the first website on google...) these are the top social networking sites:

1. Facebook
2.MySpace
3. Twitter
4.LinkedIN
5. Ning
6. Tagged
7.Classmates.com
ETC. If you really want to look up the rest, you can.

The funny thing about this is that there are really only 3 of these that your average joe off the street has ever heard of- Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace. Facebook and Twitter are cool with me but MySpace is so outdated and abandoned that it makes any social network junkie want to cry. LinkedIN? Ning? Tagged? The majority of the privelged population has never even hear of such websites. I did a little research and found out what they are...

LinkedIN- a social networking site for professionals seeking business connections and potential clients

Ning-I don't know how to summarize this...

Tagged- "Other social networks are for staying in touch with people you already know. At Tagged, we make it easy to meet new people through social games,friend suggestionsbrowsing profilesgroup interests and much more."
"Tagged is the place where people can discover hundreds of new friends or just meet that special someone. "

Friendster- a social networking site for the nerds who play legitimate online games

SO I have accounts on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Blogspot and I am taking on the challenge of actually updating them on a regular basis. Hopefully I'll have some cyber success.

Turkey Lurkey is in the Oven

This marks the beginning of my return to fame.

HEY! Yes, I am alive, and if you're still reading this, then Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! Now that Turkey Day is gone, Christmas is coming up fast and I am STILL procrastinating about shopping. I have a substantial amount of  shopping money this year because I have gotten smarter when it comes to spending. So since it's BLACK FRIDAY, I am going out to brave the lines and moronic drivers in hope of getting a good deal on some stuff.

Sam and me. How cute are we?
